Marvin Isaac Wyler Sr., aged 76, passed away unexpectedly following a brief illness Thursday morning September 2, 2021.
Marvin was born on October 29, 1944, in Payson, UT to William Edward Chatwin Sr. and Dorothy Mae Wyler Chatwin. He was adopted and raised by Henry Wyler and Elberta Chatwin Wyler.
Marvin was a shining example to those around him and a firm believer in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He had steadfast morals, unwavering faith, and enough love to fill any room. His greatest joy was caring for his family.
We will all remember him as having the brightest smile when anyone came to visit. He loved long hugs. Seeing the joy it brought to his eyes would make his loved ones want to just keep hugging.
He always wanted those who visited to feel welcome and especially to make sure they knew where all the food was.
Marvin attended the Jordan High School in Sandy, UT graduating with the Class of 62. He was a gifted student and received multiple scholarships but he felt several promptings to instead ‘Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and all else will be added to you.” After graduating, he answered the call for a 2 year mission to Short Creek where, under the direction of Edson P. Jessop Sr., he helped build the community. A short time later, he and his family were called on a mission to manage the Short Creek Community Garden and Cannery which they tirelessly did with all their hearts for over 20 years and in so doing helped provide for the community they so dearly loved. He ran a family business, Marvin Wyler Stucco, which operated throughout Utah and Arizona.
His love was infectious and will be sorely missed but never forgotten.
Thank you Marvin, for sharing your light and life with the world. May you rest in peace and continue to guide us with your memory.
