Marvin Calvin Knox, 74, of Lake Havasu City, went to be with His Lord
on August 26, 2020 after experiencing a sudden cardiac arrest on
August 12th. He was born in Portland, OR to Walter & Patricia Knox and
raised in Bellevue, WA.

Marvin was a retired firefighter and paramedic for the Portland Fire
Bureau. Prior to that, he was a commercial airline pilot, a bush pilot
for the Alaskan Bureau of Land Management, and an instructor for
private aircraft pilots. He is veteran of the US Army having fought in
Viet Nam.

He loved and was loved by his wife of 21 years, Marta, his son James
Knox (Heather), his daughter Laura Burton (Matthew), his stepson Kolby
Belk (Tommie) and his foster son Warren Fleming; his sisters Kathleen
Knox, and Sharon Thompson (Dave). He leaves behind 10 amazing
grandkids. We all miss him something fierce.

Marvin loved God and followed Jesus all his adult life. A celebration
of his life will be held at Covenant Church on Saturday September 12th
at 2:00 pm in Lake Havasu. He will be interred at Mt Tahoma National
Cemetery in Kent, Washington later this month.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Hospice of the Valley
Ryan House in Phoenix, AZ or your local hospice organization.
