Marvin Parker Coker

LaGrange – Marvin Parker Coker, 90, passed away on Friday, June 28, 2019 at Kitty Askins Hospice Center surrounded by his family.

Marvin was born in Wayne County on February 12, 1929 to the late Leonard and Bessie Garris Coker. He retired as an inspector with the tobacco division of the United States Department of Agriculture after 29 years of service. Marvin was a lover of the land and enjoyed his life as a farmer and will be remembered by many as an avid gardener. He was a member of Walnut Creek Free Will Baptist Church.

The family will receive friends on Sunday, June 30, 2019 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. at Rouse Funeral Home followed by a service to celebrate Marvin’s life at 3:00 p.m. in the chapel. A private interment for the family will be held in Fairview Cemetery.

Marvin is survived by his wife of 47 years, Louise Snipes Coker; nieces, Joan Wilson Hester (James), Kay Wilson Lockerby (Curtis), Pamela Wilson Bunn (Garry) and Susan Coker McCoy (Ronnie); and three step grandchildren. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Shirley Coker Wilson; brother, James Edward Coker; and step-children, Joan Coor Hart and Robert Glenn Coor.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be given in his memory to Walnut Creek Free Will Baptist Church, 138 Beston Road, La Grange, NC 28551.
