Marvin Dahlberg, age 75, Fargo, ND, died peacefully in his home on Friday, January 6, 2006 surrounded by his loving family.
Marvin was born December 22, 1930 in Lake Park, MN, the son of Oscar and Rosella (Horan) Dahlberg. He grew up and received his schooling in Lake Park. He was baptized and confirmed at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Lake Park. Marvin married Doris Jellum on July 15, 1950. They moved to Fargo where they have made their home. Marvin began working for Robert Gibb and Sons in 1946 and continued until his retirement, 46 years later, in 1992.
Throughout his life Marvin enjoyed most, the time he spent attending and supporting his children and grandchildren in all of their activities. He loved his summers at Lake Ida being surrounded by all of his family. He was a gracious man with a gentle spirit ? always a kind word to say about everyone. His humbleness and kind heart will never be forgotten.
