Marvin Shilman

June 9, 1925 - December 27, 2016

Marvin, 91, was reunited with the love of his life, after a brief 5 months apart, on December 27, 2016. He was a WWII Veteran and an awesome father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He enjoyed spending time with his family.

A private graveside service will be held at Iowa Veteran’s Cemetery in Van Meter at a later date.

Marvin is survived by his daughter, Vanessa (Jerry) Lamb; grandson, Matthew (Stacy) Britt; granddaughter, Angel Kline; great-grandchildren, Dalton, Jacob, Lilith, Chyanne and Mikah; and a sister Arlene Davis.

He is preceded in death by his wife of 66 years, Evelyn; his parents, Frederick and Alvina Shilman; granddaughter, Samantha Rae Britt; and 3 brothers and 2 sisters.

The family would like to thank the VA of Central Iowa for taking such great care of Marvin.
