Marvin Glenn Little, 76, born in Nashville, TN, resident of Port Orange, FL fell asleep in death Saturday afternoon December 19, 2020. He persevered every moment in the ICU and Hospice before peacefully falling asleep with his faithful wife by his side. Affirmation to his quiet, but resolute manner he lived his life, caring deeply for my mom, me, and others. A ‘Country Boy’ at heart he could always be found in his yard amongst his haven of plants, flowers, and miscellaneous creations. Whether a fence or planters’ box, we all agreed his specialty was his PHD…Post Hole Digging. Rarely without a shovel, always willing to listen, more than patient, he endured for his faith and family. An understatement it would be to say he adored my mom. I’ve yet to observe anyone more devoted and willing to sacrifice for her betterment. She would be the first to agree she is a better person today because of his love. She loved him, likewise, being blessed to spend 40 years with her best friend. He spent 8 years as a Marine, 40+ years a father and husband, and most important to him later in life as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, always striving to imitate Christ Jesus’ model for living. I do not remember a time where he did not read his Bible every day and always impress upon me as a youth the significance of doing all things for God. If you truly have something special about you…others will do the bragging for you. No doubt therefore he never sought recognition for the impact he had on those closest. His life was about, “What can I do?” His legacy will be that of the impact he had on others, especially those he is survived by. His faithful wife Judy Little, adoring son Neil Little, his princess Nicole Little, and his beloved grandchildren Bailey, Carter, Camden, and Ella and his brother Bobby Little. We all take comfort in his being overjoyed as we kept the faith when he sees us again, ‘Just Around the Corner.’ 3 John 4. MARVIN LITTLE’S GARDEN There are SEVEN WONDERS OF THE WORLD. They were the Pyramids of Egypt; the Hanging Gardens of Babylon; the statue of Zeus by Phidias at Olympia; the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus; the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus; the Colossus of Rhodes and the Pharaohs at Alexander, however this group of fabled sights from the ancient Greek list do not begin to touch the garden Marvin Little brought forth. In his garden he grew LOVE; his benevolent presence was always brimming with care for others. His personality was full of Kindness, Gentleness and Pureness. In Marvin’s garden he sprung up PEACE. Marvin was always calm and friendly, he had never met a stranger; in his garden he grew passionate tender affection for everyone. His plants never had any weeds. If negativity would appear he would stomp it out; a negative thought never sprouted from him. If someone said something unsatisfactory to him he would just smile and walk away. In fact he should be called Marvelous Marvin. In Marvin’s garden he also grew Long Suffering because he was troubled with many ailments and he never ever complained. Instead of complaining or striking back those who vexed him he would just would just attend to his garden to up root more attributes. Mr Marvin Little’s GARDEN is definitely THE EIGHTH WONDER OF THE WORLD. WE WILL MISS YOU OUR DEAR MARVIN
