Marvan Russell Voshall, 90, loving husband of Millie Voshall, passed away peacefully in his sleep at home with his wife and son by his side on July 20, 2014.
Marvin was born on Aug. 13, 1923, to Charles and Clara (Dayton) Voshall in Adams County, N.D. The eldest of six sons, he was raised in Lemon, S.D.
Marvin was a Navy pilot in World War II. He received numerous awards in education throughout his life. By trade, Marvan worked as an electrician. He had so much spunk and energy it earned him the nickname “Sparky” by his co-workers.

He is survived by his wife, Millie; son, Russ, and grandson, Austin, of Vacaville; brother, Clair Voshall, of Lemon, S.D.; numerous nieces, nephews and in-laws.
