He was the son of John and Icia Stamey Carpenter and is preceded in death by his parents, three sisters, and five brothers.

Marvin will be remembered for his generosity and his caring spirit. He would give whatever he had with an open heart. He was also known for having a mischievous streak and for enjoying a good laugh. He absolutely loved his family. In fact, they knew without a doubt he was crazy about each of them. Marvin liked traveling and seeing new sights. His sidekick was Bootsie, a black poodle who truly thought she was part human. No matter what the trip, even just to the store or to work, Bootsie was always ready to go. She and Marvin reached an understanding early on that dog food was for ordinary dogs; and, therefore, he made sure she dined solely on people food. Marvin was an enthusiastic sports fan. He enjoyed watching the Atlanta Braves, North Carolina Tar Heels, and NASCAR. He also always looked forward to and had great fun on fishing trips to Michigan. Marvin installed commercial textile cleaning systems and owned the company, MCC. Graveside services will be held on Friday, May 6, at 11:00 a.m. at Black Mountain Baptist Church Cemetery.

The family will visit with friends after the service. In the event of rain, the service will be help at Black Mountain Baptist Church. Moffitt Family Funeral Care is honored to serve Marvin's family.
