Marvin graduated from KSU in 1947 with a veterinarian degree. He moved to Iowa for work and found many opportunities with large and small animals. He was an inspector at the stockyards for several years before it closed. He always provided for his family.

Doc enjoyed working outdoors on the farm or around the yard. And, of course, food. Being from the Depression era, he did not let anything go to waste.
