Mrs. Haller: I'm so sorry to see that we've lost "Pa Haller." I was in his Civics class in 9th grade. He always used to tease the guys as they entered the 1st-hour class and say, "How's your liver today?!" (inferring that they'd been drinking underage.) He didn't let us cuss in class, calling it "barnyard talk." Instead we had to say, "Shuckie darn!" He was a really nice man and teacher, and I'm sorry for your loss.

Marvin was my dads first cousin. Seems like I remember him always in a blue shirt and deck shoes. We lived in Muscatine Iowa for a while and when he was in town to see his mom he’d stop by to chat. He drove a green 1969 Ford seems like always. Even in the late 70s or early 80s. If you said to him hey I see you drive the Ford his standard reply was always yep only three more payments and it’s mine lol Marvin is an easy guy to miss in your life when he’s not there! Those friends and relatives of his will miss him always!

Where to even start? My Uncle Marv was one of the sharpest men I've ever known. Hard at times but very well respected and loved by his family. I could listen for hours on end of old stories of our family and laugh non stop for hours. Sitting evenings in the old cottage over looking the river and reminiscing of my great grand father and other members gone to soon. Rest well Uncle Marv. See you again

I had Marvin (Pa) for chemistry and physics at Garnavillo. I do remember some class material,  but the one quote I really remember is "whether you're rich or poor, it's nice to have money".
