Marvel “Marv” Workman passed away in the company of his loving family on Friday, September 21. Born on June 16, 1939, in Seattle to Lloyd and Hilma Workman, he was one of four boys and was predeceased by his eldest brother Jack and survived by Les and Ken.
In 1964 he married Carolyn Jo Williams, who predeceased him, and raised four children: Joe, Andy, Jennifer and Jill.
He moved to Woodinville in 1978 where he established his accounting business.
He was active in the community — a founding trustee of the Northshore Scholarship Foundation, a charter member of the Woodinville Rotary Club established in 1987 and the club’s first full-term president.
In recognition of his many civic contributions over the years, the Rotary Club established the Marv Workman Business Scholarship at the University of Washington Bothell.
He was a kind, caring and generous man who was known for his hard work, great humorous personality and passion for the Huskies. He was a loving brother, husband, father, grandfather and friend who will be dearly missed.
Services and a celebration of his life will be Sunday, September 30, at 2 p.m. at the Holy Cross Episcopal Church in Redmond (11526-162nd Ave NE; 98052). In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials to the Marv Workman Rotary Scholarship, Northshore Scholarship Foundation, P O Box 173, Bothell, WA 98041.
