Maxine and Family, Robert and I are so sorry to hear that Marv passed away. He was my mentor at GM as well as for life’s lessons. I met him in 1984 when he became my boss in Market Research at GM’s ACDelco Division, our first African American executive. That first introduction was very impressive and I have admired him since then. His very presence commanded and received respect. He was a wonderful and caring human being. May your Family find comfort knowing that he is resting peacefully with our Lord.
