Marvin Wyer

Marvin Dale Wyer was born September 22, 1937 to John & May (Wickman) Wyer. He passed away peacefully with his family by his side on November 4, 2015 at the age of 78.

Marvin attended Neiger Country School near Denver, Missouri and later received his G.E.D.

Marvin worked for several farmers until he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force in February 1957. Marvin was united in marriage to Ann Stephens at Bedford, Iowa in May of 1957.

They began their married life in San Antonia, Texas where Marvin was serving at Lackland Air Base and their first child, James, was born. Marvin was transferred to the Philippines where he lived for 1 ½ years. He returned stateside and Ann and James joined him at Kincheloe Air Base in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Their second child, Randall, was born here. After his discharge from the Air Force, reaching the rank of Airman 1st Class, Marvin and his family moved to a farm in Ringgold County, Iowa to begin his farming career. Their third children, a daughter, Jon A. joined the family.

Marvin enjoyed farming, both cattle and crops, with his International equipment. He especially enjoyed calving, planting, and the harvest season. In 1968, Marvin became a member of the Platte Center Presbyterian Church where he served as elder and on other committees. Marvin served several years on the Ringgold County Farm Bureau Board. Marvin looked forward to family and friends get together; especially enjoying the great grandchildren. He loved to give them all rides on the ranger.

We are so sad to hear that Marvin has passed away. We enjoyed being neighbors with him and Gracie for years by Martinsville. I also delivered his mail and enjoyed him and Gracie''s daily conversations. He was a wonderful man, our prayers to the family.

My Uncle Marvin. He was my star when I was young and on his farm. He let me help with chores. I remember him letting me drive his truck while he pitched hay out the back. I remember Helping Aunt Ann get dinner ready for his noon breaks out in the field. I was blessed to have the farming memories as a child. I send love and comfort to my family. Wish I could of been there for the service. May he rest in peace with my Dad.

Marvin made me feel like I''d known him all my life when we first met in our adult life. He was a caring and hard working man. May the seeds you sowed bring you a wonderful harvest until we meet again.
