Marvin was born in Spring Bay on July 25, 1927 to Robert and Mamie (Stack) Sloss. He married Irene Campbell in 1951. In the early years of their marriage, they lived briefly in Sudbury and then returned to Manitoulin Island. Marvin loved the Island and enjoyed his many years on the farm. After retiring from the farm, he worked at Manitoulin Transport for several years. He was a great gardener, enjoyed making maple syrup and loved country music, especially Christie’s and Art’s band. In his 80s, he started curling and became an avid curler. He was disappointed that the 2020-2021 season was cancelled. He enjoyed people and had many friends, both young and old. Marvin was known for his keen sense of humour. He kept in close touch with many of his nephews and nieces, several of whom spent their summers on the farm. For over 40 years, he hunted with his nephews Rick and Randy Degagne.
