MARVIN DENNIS MATHEWS
Date of Passing: Feb 06, 2017Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
MARVIN DENNIS MATHEWS Peacefully with family by his side on February 6, 2017 at St. Boniface Hospital, Marvin Mathews passed away at the age of 82. Uncle Marvin spent most of his life in Whitehorse, Yukon Territories where he worked as a skilled journeyman carpenter only returning to Manitoba in 2009. He was a hard worker and respected others who worked hard. Marvin lived his life like he liked his hats - plain and simple with no logos or fancy writing. He always said, "I don't need much!" Some of his favourite things were fishing, hunting, visiting with family and friends, poker, garage sales, the horse races, Lemon Hart rum, Blue Jays baseball, a good story and, later in life, finding a good deal at Wal-Mart. Uncle Marvin was a quiet, soft spoken, gentle man, but definitely a character. He is survived by his sister-in-law Carol Mathews, close cousin Lorraine Procter along with numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Emily and Otto, brother Orval, sisters Eleanor Fines and Evangeline Sereda, brother-in-law George Sereda and niece Debbie. In keeping with Uncle Marvin's wishes, cremation has taken place and a small private service will take place at a later date. We would like to thank the staff of the Cardiology Ward at St. Boniface Hospital for their care and concern as well as Dr. Venter for his care over the years. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, Suite 200, 6 Donald St., Winnipeg, MB R3L 0K6 or to The Kidney Foundation of Canada, 1 - 452 Dovercourt Drive, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3Y 1G4.
