    Dear Marv and Joan: I am so very sorry to learn of the loss of your son Chancey as a result of complications with type 1 diabetes. My heart goes out to you both and although there is little to comfort you at this time, my hope is that time will heal the pain and grief and your memory of the good times with your boy will live immortal in your hearts and mind. Sincere sympathies.

  • Stephen O'Donnell says:

    I’m so very sorry about Chancey. I worked with him at Powell’s. I honestly never got a chance to know him all that well, but he was such a lovely, quiet, positive presence. All love and peace to his wife and daughters and all his family.

  • Toni Roberts says:

    Dear Joan and Marvin, heaven has recently welcomed another angel…Chancey. He was such a sweet kid growing up and it was fun to be neighbors. His dry sense of humor and quick wit always made him such a pleasure to be around. From freckles to fatherhood, where did the years go? He sure fought the good fight but God saw that he was tired. Chancey knew strong support and great love from those that knew him, especially from his family. Joan and Marv you were wonderful parents and our hearts go out to you and his wife and kids. Chancey was a gift, no one can really blame God for wanting him back. He is in the best hands now and free from pain and struggles. You will all meet again and in the meantime we will be praying for Gods comfort to each of you. Love and hugs dear friends, Kent and Toni.
