Marvin of Rimbey, Alta.
Born March 12, 1930 – January 6, 2016.
It is with love that we announce the passing of our beloved dad, grandpa, papa, and brother (and many other cherished titles). Marvin was born in Horsham, Saskatchewan. From there, his family moved to Alberta, where he spent the majority of his life. He went on to complete trades-school, where he obtained his gas-fitting and plumbing tickets and went on to establish a life-long career with both the federal and provincial governments. Marvin met his loving wife, Joan (nee Gray) Koenig, in Stettler and they were gifted with three sons, Alan, James, and Mark (Cheryl Arsenault). Joan passed away in 1986, after which Marvin continued to live in Rimbey with their sons. Marvin was also pre-deceased by his father, John Koenig (1967) and mother, Nathalia Koenig (1987); Brother Wallace (1983); Sisters Eileen (1983), Lorene (1985), Viola (1989) and Burnetta (2015). His is survived by his sons, Alan (Pam), James (Debbie), and Mark; his sister Edith; brothers Vern (Evelyn) and Gerald (Carol); his six grandchildren Victoria (Carl) Haapala, Joanne Koenig, Vanessa Koenig, Kassaundra Bushey, John Koenig, and Jesse Koenig; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and other family members.
On behalf of the entire family, we invite you to join us in the celebration of Marvin’s life on January 12, 2016 at 2 o’clock p.m. at Wilson’s Funeral Chapel , 6120 Highway 2A, Lacombe, Alta. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you graciously consider donating to a charitable organization, such as the Lacombe Long Term Care, where Marvin spent the last three months of his life being attentively cared for by the staff there.
Special thanks to everyone that took time to come visit Marvin, as well as kept him (and our family) in your thoughts and prayers.
