DURHAM – Marvin Wayne Woodbury, 66, of Durham, Maine completed his earthly journey on Thursday, April 2, 2015 with his loving family by his side.

He was born April 25, 1948 to Wilma (Lawless) and Charles Woodbury. He served two tours in Vietnam and would again serve his country and fellow Veterans through his tenure as Commander of the AMVETS Post 13, and then as the Service Officer of the VFW Post 88. Marvin helped countless Veterans with attaining their benefits they so rightly earned. His dedication to his fellow Veterans earned him numerous awards and accolades. He was a strong voice in the community serving as Durham Town Selectman and Past President and Day Chief of the Durham Volunteer Fire Department Inc. where he was known as "Radar".

Marvin married his soul mate Cynthia (Daly) on May 25, 1973. They spent the last forty-three years together raising their three children and enjoying their four grandchildren, as well as five "fur" grandchildren. Marvin was known as the life of the party. He often surprised family and friends by eating worms for twenty-five cents.
Marvin was predeceased by his mother, Wilma Adeline Perkins, his father, Charles Woodbury; his brother, David Woodbury, his sister, Jo Anne Moore; and two nephews, Justin Woodbury, and Benjamin Preston Perkins.
