In Memory Of


Marvin Wayne Shoup

Mar 11, 1953 - Jan 17, 2021


  As per the families wishes, there will be a private celebration of his life.


On Sunday, January 17th,2021, Marvin, loving father, brother, and friend, passed away peacefully at the age of 67.

Marvin had the soul of a cowboy. He took great pleasure in all aspects of horsemanship, from training, competing or just taking in the majestic mountain views from the back of his trusty steed, Sleepy. When he was not with his horses, he liked to pass his time playing poker or strumming a tune on his guitar.

Marvin is survived by his daughter Alisha, sister Charlotte, brothers, Rod, Craig and Derough. He will be sadly missed by many long-time friends as well as a large extended family, for whom his presence was always supportive and loving.
