Marvin was born on July 20, 1930, to Harry and Hazel (Zierlein) Weber, near Arnold. He attended country school and graduated from Arnold High School in 1947. He then served in the Army during the Korean War. Shortly after his discharge, he married Gaylene Garrison. From this marriage they had four children: Vicky, David, Devra, and Danny. Marvin worked at his father’s gas station in Arnold and later owned and operated this business as Weber’s Sinclair Service. He also hauled fuel for Logan County Coop. Marvin eventually became a full-time rural mail carrier until retirement. Marvin was a member of The Nazarene Church and The American Legion. Marvin’s hobbies included sports, NASCAR, and he faithfully attended the SORC races in Arnold. In 2011, Marvin was honored as The Christian Heritage Nebraska Father of the Year. He was very proud of this achievement but said he just married a good wife and they raised four “good kids”.
