U.S. Veteran

Marvin Lloyd Mastaw of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan went to be with his Lord and Savior early Saturday morning, March 23, 2013 at War Memorial Hospital. Marvin was born in Sault Ste. Marie December 18, 1924. He was a proud veteran of World War II, enlisting in the U.S. Army in 1942. He was stationed in Germany with the 528th Field Artillery Battalion until his honorable discharge in 1946. He was awarded a Good Conduct Medal along with an American Theater Ribbon and the EAME Theater Ribbon with Two Bronze Stats. He will be remembered for his witty sense of humor, accompanied by the twinkle in his eye and his mischievous grin. He was good hearted and generous, not only to his family but to numerous charities. He always supported the Salvation Army, especially at Christmas and had an abiding compassion for the children of the Special Olympics. Marvin is survived by a son Darwyn of Oscoda, Michigan; a daughter Gail (Paul) Gay of Salt Lake City, Utah; a brother and sister-in-law Anthony and Helen Mastaw of Appleton, Wisconsin and a very special niece, Diana (John) Gunckel of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. Marvin often referred to Diana as his ''Agent'' and his ''Best Friend'', from building snowmen together when she was a child, teaching her to drive as a teenager, watching golf or just playing cards they always enjoyed their time together. She was always there to help him through every aspect of his life and was with him in his last moments. Marvin is also survived by five grandchildren, mine great grandchildren, a sister, special friends and many nieces and nephews that meant a lot to him. Marvin was preceded in death by his wife of 60 years, Eldora in 2003.

Good bye, Uncle "Fish" - I'll always remember, as a kid, riding in the car with my Dad, checking the bridges on the canal, to see where you were fishing that particular day. I look forward to that time when we'll find you and Aunt "Dodie" in heaven.

Darwyn and Gail our sympathies to you both and all the family. Your dads humor will be missed. He would tease my hubby about catching his fish so he can have all the fish in Heaven. Will always remember the snowsides he would make us in the winter when we were little,and the rides to watch deer. Linda and Jim Rogers

I'm saddened to hear of his passing but so very happy that Marvin is with his beloved wife. He was the very best neighbor any single mom could have had. He always had a smile and a wave, a cherrful word, he and his nephew shovled me out of the 9 feet of snow in 1997. He was appreciated and loved more than he ever knew.
