Marvin was born on June 20, 1924 in Commerce, Oklahoma to Dana D. and Bertha M. Reynolds. He graduated from Commerce High School and attended North East Oklahoma Junior College in Miami, Oklahoma. He moved to Tucson, Arizona in 1944 and worked at Davis Monthan Air Force Base as a Radar Technician during World War II. He was an Experienced Project Engineer on the B-47 Program and a Field Engineer for Philco Corporation. He and his wife, former Delicia Miranda, owned several businesses in Tucson; Reynolds Electronic Service; Central TV & Appliance Service and Delmar Builders Supply. Marvin was a well-respected member of the Tucson community. He was active both nationally and locally in the service associations. His companies were service companies only, no sales, but represented some of the leading manufacturers, distributors and dealers. His philosophy of service to community as well as customers came naturally to Marvin and he built his business into one of the largest independent service companies in the State. His company stood for high standards of workmanship and service. He was a member of SAHBA (Southern AZ Home Builders Assn); NARDA (National Appliance and Radio-TV Dealers Assn); served on the Executive Committee of the Electric League of AZ; and on the Electronics Program Advisory Committee of Pima College.

Gercke Assembly; member of St. Ambrose Parish; member and treasurer of St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. Ambrose. Marvin generously gave to others during his life. He is survived by his devoted wife of 65 years, Delicia M. Reynolds; his sisters-in-law, Evelina Venturo and Elva Treyz and his many loving nieces, nephews and cousins.
