Marvin Wayne Buss, BS, MS peacefully passed away at home February 10, 2014.

In 1965 Marvin graduated from the RAF Empire Test Pilot School and later attended Kansas University and received his Master of Engineering. He worked in St. Louis as an aeronautical engineer.

The pride of his life was his 3 children and 6 grandchildren.
