Marvin Leverne Laney, 81, of Dennison, died Friday, March 2, 2018 in Oak Pointe Nursing and Rehabilitation Center at Baltic.

Born at Hamler, Ohio on January 22, 1937, Marvin was a son of the late Marvin J.C. and Edith J. (Little) Laney.

Following his graduation from High School, Marvin became a heavy equipment operator and entered into the United States Marine Corps. He later joined the United States Army from 1966-1969, where he was assigned to the 1st Batallion-3rd Infantry Division at Fort Myer, Virginia.

Marvin was employed by Caravat Coal Company for 16 ½ years as a heavy equipment operator and later joined Baker Highway Express and retired from there following 10 ½ years of service.

Marvin was an avid beekeeper who also loved caring for his flower and vegetable gardens and playing on his HAM Radio.

He is survived by his wife, Betty “Midge” (Grabits) Laney, whom he married on December 16, 1967; his children,  Marvin F.

Completing the family are seven grandchildren, six great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Marvin was preceded in death by an infant son, Jeff and a daughter-in-law, Barbara Laney.

The family will greet guests on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 from 5-7 PM and again one hour prior to services on Thursday March 8, 2018 from 9:30-10:30 AM in the Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home & Crematory at New Philadelphia where Pastor Mike Thurston will lead a service celebrating Marvin’s life at 10:30 AM.

We had the pleasure of meeting Marvin and Midge at the Class of 66 1/5 Mech Infantry military reunions. It was an honor that we had the chance to "thank him" for his military service and enjoy his company at the reunions. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. May God give you comfort, love, and strength during this time of loss. He will surely be missed by all of us.

My brother was always there for me, co-signing for a car when I was in college; walking me down the aisle when I got married; waking up after thyroid cancer surgery with Bud sitting by my bed holding my hand. I miss you already.
