August 8, 1934 - September 22, 2021
Marvin Frank Goedde passed away September 22 at the age of 87. He was born in Snake Run, IN, and raised in Haubstadt. Marvin is survived by his wife of 65 years, Annette (nee Wannemuehler), and his eight children, Brenda (Tim) Born, Deb (Mark) Garvey, Steve Goedde, Mike (Soozie) Goedde, Don (Ginny) Goedde, Kathy (Vince) Boots, Julie (Mike) Sellers, and Chris (Leslie) Goedde. He also leaves behind four brothers, Urban (the late Doris), Joe (Janith), his twin Darwin (Jeanette), and Andy (Marcia), and one sister, Loretta (Jerry) Schmitt. He has 24 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren. Marvin was preceded in death by his father, Andrew, his mother, Marie, his step-mother, Frieda, and his father- and mother-in-law, Ben and Rose. Marvin was a man of faith and dedication to family. He was very proud of his years in the Knights of Columbus and the Knights of St. John, for which he was named Knight of the Year in 1978. He was a longtime parishioner and choir member at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, and he and Annette were awarded the Brute Award in recognition of their Christian stewardship. His children and grandchildren were his joy, as were rooting for the Mater Dei Wildcats (especially during the many years he and Annette ran the concession stand), playing cards, gardening, and golfing. He was also a regular blood donor, tallying to 18+ gallons over the years. Marvin worked 13 years for Bristol-Myers and retired from there, prior to which he worked at Chrysler and as a route salesman for various bread and cake distributors. After retirement, he worked part-time for Berry Plastics. Marvin fought hard against Parkinson’s disease for over 20 years. His family is grateful to the wonderful instructors and co-boxers at Rock Steady Boxing, and to his doctors, his caregivers Megan, LeAnn, and Home Instead, his Heritage Hospice team, and his children and their spouses for their dedicated care.
