Marvin Lageson

Marvin died Thursday, June 9, 2011, at Good Samaritan Society surrounded by his family.

Marvin Andrew Lageson was born on Nov. 8, 1924, to Edward and Lydia Lageson. He attended school in Ellendale and farmed on the family farm. He enjoyed dancing and met his future wife, Linda Flink, at the Terp Ballroom in Austin. They were united in marriage on May 23, 1959. From this blessed union five children were born. Marvin worked in various factories over his lifetime to support his family, but farming was his real love. Marvin was a kind and humorous man that liked to tell a good story. He liked to raise vegetable gardens and had a passion for raising tomatoes. Horses, old tractors, fishing, playing cards and the price of corn and beans held his interest. Marvin loved his family and will be truly missed by his daughters and their families.
