Hopefully there are musicians and marching band people here on MC who might have known this good man.

There was sad news received yesterday about the "Music Man" of Long Beach, Ca., Marvin Marker, passing away at an airport in Denver Co., from unk causes. He was the founder and director of the Long Beach Jr. Concert Band, in which I am proud to say that I was a member of. I just saw him this past Saturday night at the Belmont Shores Christmas parade with his marching band. this is truly sad news.

I know Marvin also worked for Disneyland as a musical director years ago. I do not know the exact years, so if anyone here, who might know, can clarify that, it would be appreicated.
