Marvin Jameson

Marvin Lee Jameson “Marvelous Marv,” 77, passed away at his home in Vanlue, July 1, 2021.
Marvin was born Oct. 8th, 1943, in Greenville, S.C. to the late Virginia Lee Gooch and the late Marvin Welty Wood. Marvin was soon adopted by his beloved step-father, Paul D. Jameson (“Dan”), who also preceded him in death. Marvin retired a Sergeant First Class, a 20-year veteran of the United States Army, having served in the Vietnam War. He was assigned joint peace keeping exercises near the D.M.Z in Korea and mostly a tanker with the 3rd Armored Division. While in the Army he met and married Judy Fairchild, on April 14, 1973, she survives. After leaving the Army, Marvin retired from Blanchard Valley Hospital, Findlay and St. Rita’s Hospital, Lima.
Surviving is a son, Mr. Adam Jameson, Carey; four daughters, Mrs. Randal Ritter (Paula), rural Carey, Cathy Brandenburg, Colorado Springs, Colo., Ms. Terri Jameson, Colorado Springs, Colo. and Lisa Jameson, Las Vegas, Nev. Also surviving are two brothers, Jeff Jameson, Albuquerque, N.M. and Daniel Jameson, Calif. He is also survived by five grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
Marvin enjoyed traveling with his wife Judy, and spending time with his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed watching MMA, boxing and Nascar. He enjoyed fishing very much and collecting oil lamps and coins. He also loved to play card games but hated to lose! And never play Risk with him!
Marvin lived a very traveled life, we do believe he saw every state, he grew up in Alaska mostly, it was always so interesting listening to him talk about all the places he has been and the hijinks he had along the way. He always had a good sense of humor and love to laugh.
Marvin was a devout believer in our lord and savior Jesus Christ and when he could, attended Vanlue Community Church.
Visitation will be held from 3-7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 7, at Stombaugh-Batton Funeral Home in Carey.
Marvin’s service will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday at the funeral home following the visitation, with the Rev. Melanie Martin officiating. Military services will be conducted by the Carey Honor Guard following the service to honor his 20 years of service to our country.
