Marvin passed from this life on Monday morning, July 12, 2021 from the Morningside Assisted Living in Cookeville, TN. He was born in Overton County, Tennessee on September 17, 1928 to the late Benton and Dessie Coleman Norrod. Marvin was a member of the Grace Baptist Church in Alpine, TN.
Marvin and Vada were married February 8th, 1948 and celebrated their 73rd anniversary this year. He worked at Cumberland and Livingston furniture factories doing upholstery until he retired. His true enjoyment was growing a garden and farming. He loved everything about farming but especially cattle. He greatly loved his family and friends. He and Vada always had lots of family at their home through the many years....Kids, grandkids, in-laws, siblings, nieces and nephews and neighbors. If he wasn't farming, he loved nothing more than sitting around with loved ones talking and laughing. He was an honest Christian man that lived his life very simply with great dignity and love throughout his life. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him.
