Dear Robbie, Marsha, and Family,

Janet and I express our condolences for the loss of your Dad, our Uncle Marvin. He was a remarkable man who touched many people and took loving care of those close to him ,
I have a fond memory of Uncle Marvin taking Aunt Shirley, wheelchair-bound at the time, and Janet, young Andy, and me to the Inner Harbor for a peaceful excursion. His attention to your mother's every need throughout the day warmed my heart. This is how I will always remember Uncle Marvin.

Dear Robbie and Marsha and family,
Condolences to you and your families on your dad's passing. He was an extraordinary man.
I remember coming home to Frederick one day and was pleasantly surprised to see Uncle Marvin paying a visit. I was even more surprised to learn he rode his bike there. With that kind of energy and spirit, it's no wonder he lived to be 100, touched so many lives, and had the love of two very special women.

Mr. Solomon was one of the nicest men I have ever met. I will definitely miss his warm smile and sweet nature. He would often led our Sabbath Services in Autumn Ridge, which the other residents appreciated. I know everyone he met was very fond of him. He will be greatly missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. I hope happy memories will help during this difficult time.

Marvin was a national treasure and hero. He loved his country, his family and his friends. Over the years his body got more frail and his voice got softer but his mind remained incredibly sharp. We are proud to have known him and we are so sad to lose him.

I first met Marvin when he and Harriet were regular Shabbat attendees at Chizuk Amuno and then I would see him at North Oaks when I visited my dad, Gordon. He always had a kind word and a leadership capability that would find you saying yes to what ever he asked of you. Knowing him is a blessing.

There are not enough superlatives in our language to describe Marvin. This wonderful man was our friend, mentor, and inspiration. A long time member of the Chatham Club since 1955, he always demonstrated leadership and conviviality. He showed us how to live an interesting life always looking forward to a new experience. There is a saying, "Die young at an old age." Marvin did just that. We will always remember him with love.

Marvin had a great big warm heart and was a wonderful friend to my dad, Gordon. He knew how to create and engage a community, of which the Happy Hour at Northoaks is a superb example. I am very saddened by his death and know that he and the joy he so generously spread in his life will be missed by many. What a guy.
Most sincerely,

I'm crushed as are all of Marvin's friends at North Oaks Senior Living. During this long year of Covid-19, we were not allowed to visit the Autumn Ridge side where he was living. I was hoping that now as we were all fully vaccinated we could, and I called last week to ask if he could join us for Seder. Two years ago, on the 75th anniversary of D-Day, I learned Marvin was there as were four other North Oaks residents. Interviewing them for a story I wrote which was published by the Baltimore Jewish Times, I learned Marvin was the captain of a minesweeper doing dangerous work to clear the way for the troops to get to the shore. When it was over, he wrote a 19-page letter to his wife. Yes, 19 pages and still has it. Google the Baltimore Jewish Times and/or my name to read the story which featured Marvin and 4 others. He was a hero and a mensch.

To Marvin's Family - I was so sorry to read about Marvin's passing. He was one of the finest men I ever met and had the privilege of working with during the years he vulunteered for JFS when I worked there. He spent hours taking people to doctor appointments, Social Service appointments, and more. He helped deliver Centerpieces for Tzedakah at times, too. Nothing was too much for Marvin. May he rest in peace and his family be comforted by memories of the wonderful years they spent together. May all of you be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. Baruch Dayen Haemet.

I was so sorry to hear about your dad this morning. In the early days, we were all so close as a family and Jerry and I felt so close to both of your parents. Through the years, I am so sorry that we all didn't stay as close as we were; your dad was an exceptional man, smart, always knew the right thing to say and always such a gentleman, and Jerry and I admired him so very much. Keep those good memories close to your heart; they will forever be with you. Please accept my sincere sympathy and know that my thoughts and prayers will always be with you. May he Rest in Peace.
