He is now at peace with his beloved wife Nancy in Heaven and with his Lord and Savior watching over his family. Marvin was born Jan. 20, 1937, in Waterville, the son of Ludger and Lydia (Lacasse) Bolduc.
Marvin was a graduate of Thomas College class of 1958 and served in the U.S. Naval Reserve as a Yeoman for eight years. He worked at Wal-Mart as a greeter for more than 15 years where he loved to interact with all of his friends and neighbors in the community. Marvin was a devout Catholic as an active member of the St. John's Parish in Winslow serving as a Eucharistic Minister for many years and as a member of the advisory board at Mt. Saint Joseph's Nursing Home for six years.
Marvin was a very involved man in the Waterville Community beginning his professional career at Stern's Department Store working his way to become both the store's manager and controller during his 34 years of employment with the company. He was a member of the Waterville Lions Club and Knights of Columbus in Waterville and Winslow, receiving his third degree knighthood and the Emeritus Life Member Award.
