Marvin Donald Meller

Marvin passed away suddenly, at his home in Barriere, B.C., on Wednesday, June 24, 2015, in his 77th year.

Marvin was the beloved father of Don (Patty), and Cathy (Nick).

He was also the proud grandfather of 15 grandchildren: Jeremy (Genna), Caleb, Kenneth, Matthew, Natika, Rachel, Andrew, Tiara, Rebecca, Matthias, Nathan, Jonathan, Hope, Joy and Ariana. He was the older brother to Ron (Bev) and Lorraine Meller.

Marv was born in 1937 to Clarence and Dagney Meller in Drumheller, Alberta. He had fond memories of growing up on the Prairies, both in Alberta and Montana, as the oldest of the preacher’s kids.

After attending Bible school, Marv turned his love of music into a lifelong vocation of piano tuning and piano restoration. He passed on his love of music to his grandchildren and taught many of them on the piano.

Marv loved the Lord and served Him in many churches over the years.

He was a charter member of Westsyde Baptist in Kamloops and a deacon and member for many years at Bethany Baptist in Barriere.

Please join us in remembering Marv on Friday, July 3, 2015. His interment will be at 10 a.m. at the Barriere Cemetery, with a service in honour of his life and faith at 2 p.m. in Kamloops at First Baptist Church.
