Peacefully, on September 30, 2017 Marvin Muscovitch passed away at the age of 86.
Born in Brandon, Manitoba on March 6, 1929, Marvin enjoyed many pastimes in his youth, such as gymnastics, judo, tennis and piano. Marvin graduated from Brandon University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Science, and subsequently moved to Winnipeg with his parents Alec and Sarah, and much younger brother Arthur. There, he pursued a career in accounting, and worked for the Manitoba Health Services Commission for well over 40 years until his retirement in 1922. Marvin was a man of few words, and enjoyed classical music, old movies and watching television. He also enjoyed his collection of watches, pens, and books.
Marvin leaves behind his wife, Ruth, of 56 years, daughters Heather (Joe) and Susan (Tal), grandchildren Rio, Ariel, and Sara, brother Arthur (Freda), nephews and cousins.
Our thanks and appreciation go out to the staff at Seven Oaks Hospital, Grace Hospital, and most of all, Extendicare Oakview Place for all their excellent and compassionate care during his final months.
Funeral services were held at Congregation Etz Chayim on Monday, October 2.
