Marvin worked 30 plus years at GM Powertrain, retiring in 1992. He was truly a jack of all trades. Always up to the challenge of conquering a project, which served him well in his self- employed endeavors.

He attended Reppert Auction Service in 1976 and started Kastel Auction Service with his brothers.
Marvin is survived by his children, Cindy (Mark) Strahan, Marilynn Hernandez, Kathy (Marty) Kunder, Dean (Sherry), Brent (Vicky) Kastel; grandchildren, Jamie, Carrie, Sarah, Kenton, Casey, Jessica, Frank, Dean Jr. , Christy, Logan and Lilli ; along with 29 great-grandchildren.
