Marvin K. Herwig, age 86 of Corcoran, passed away at his home on September 24, 2016. He was born the son of Mary Herwig on May 5, 1930 in Minneapolis, MN.

Marvin’s working career began at age 17 when he rode the rails with his brother out to the Dakotas for the wheat harvest. He traveled all over the United States, Texas, Maryland, Utah, Florida, the Dakotas, just to name a few, drilling foundations for power lines with Tri-State Drilling. Marv also became a member of the Local 49er’s in 1952 and has been a faithful member ever since. Marvin semi-retired in 1996 to spend time with his son Rande who passed away in May of 1996. He went back to work for a short period and then fully retired from Tri-State Drilling in 1997. Even though he was retired he still loved to spend time on his Bobcat.

In retirement, Marvin and Judith bought a fifth wheel trailer and began traveling. They would spend the winters in Arizona and went on many other trips all over the United States with their friends, Bonnie and Jerry.

Marvin also volunteered at the Hanover Area Food Shelf weekly and cherished the many friendships that were made there.

For enjoyment Marvin loved to hunt, go ice fishing, ride snowmobiles and spending time with his family.

Marvin is survived by his wife of 47 years Judith; children Eva (Ron) Zech, Lori (Dan) Herwig Rudolph and Bill (Becky) Herwig; grandchildren Jacob, Luke, Cody, Lance, Hadley and Macy; great grandchildren Elaina, Hannah, Zoey, Alexa and Zane; also many other relatives and friends.

Preceded in death by son Rande.
