Marvin Dallas Edmonds Jr. was the first of six sons born to the union of Marvin Dallas Edmonds, Sr. and Barbara Jean O’Bannon-Edmonds. Marvin was born in Indianapolis, Indiana on June 30th, 1952. Marvin tried to be a grouch when people were around but what made him happiest was when he was in the company of friends and family. A loving husband and dad that adored his daughter and thought she was the most beautiful girl in the world and was a formidable contender in an ongoing wrestling match with his son. He was a concerned advisor to his step-son and was a proud Granddad. He was a good son and the big brother to his siblings. Marvin leaves to cherish his memories, his loving wife Michelle, daughter Michelle, son Marvin III, stepson Andrea, four grandchildren, his mother Barbara Jean Edmonds and five brothers Michael, Melvin, Kenny, Kevin, and Derek, his host of nieces and nephews, his mother in law Salathiel Burris-Wells and the entire Burris family and many friends and coworkers.
