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 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 with the rank of Captain after 30 years of service. He truly loved his fellow firemen and his job to serve others.
He is survived by two sisters, two stepdaughters, and his beloved grandchildren.

Lee was blessed with 21 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren whom he cherished with all the power he had in him. They too cherished their moments with their Pops as well.
One of his grandsons has already written a letter to God on his behalf. A portion of it goes as follows: Lord, bless us in these times of heartache. You took our Pops today. Please accept this advice and prayer to you. He’s not as tough as he seems. He is really a big Teddy Bear. He loves unconditionally and asks a lot of questions. He will even question your answers, but rest assured he loves you, too. I would love the opportunity to have one more conversation with Pops, but I understand I will have to wait. Please watch over and take care of him as he has watched over and loved us. Amen.
Lee was preceded in death by his parents and a granddaughter Jessica King.
Lee served two terms on the Grenada City Council and was a member of First Baptist Church of Grenada. He enjoyed talking to people, and you always knew where he stood on any issue. Lee will be missed by his family and friends.
