Marvin Haddock

Lifelong Grenada resident Marvin Nathan Haddock, 83, died peacefully Oct. 6, 2019, at his home.

Mr. Haddock was born July 5, 1936, to John Haddock and Onie Mae Haddock.

Mr. Haddock was preceded in death by his wife Rosie Haddock and his son John Wayne Haddock, Grenada Police Captain who died heroically in the line of duty.

Marvin was a fun loving man with a lot of determination and a very strong will. At an early age, he developed a passion for mechanics and fully enjoyed working on his antique cars, motorcycles and anything with a motor.

Marvin loved his friends and relatives. His love of Christ was demonstrated by his willingness to always give. His visits from friends would usually end with his saying “Is there anything I can do for you?”

Marvin never met a stranger. All, who knew him, will miss his sense of humor and his quick wit. Mr. Haddock enjoyed vacationing in his motor home and had many fascinating adventures while traveling around the country.

Marvin retired from the Grenada Fire Department after 30 years of service with the rank of Captain. He truly loved his fellow firemen and his job to serve others.

He is survived by two sisters, two stepdaughters, and his beloved grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at McKibben and Guinn Funeral Home in Grenada on November 1, at 1pm. Any memorials can be sent to the Grenada Boys and Girls club.

Many thanks go to Sunflower Home Health, Legacy Hospice, and, in particular, his God sent and loving caretaker, Peggy Willis, an angel, who provided much love, peace, laughs and joyous comfort to him.
