Marvin Biere

July 22, 1931 — June 27, 2019

Marvin Dean Biere was born July 22, 1931 in Auburn, Nebraska, one of five boys born to George and Mary (Schmidt) Biere. Marvin was baptized and confirmed into the Lutheran faith at St. Paul Lutheran Church. Through his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ he is now in the presence of God the Father.

The Lord blessed him with the love of his life, Evelyn Haddox, in marriage. They were married 67 years and were blessed with two children, Susan and James.

Marvin served in the Korean War as a tank mechanic from 1952 to 1954. After Marvin returned, he and Evelyn made their home in Auburn, where they farmed and went into the fertilizer and seed business with his son James and good friend Earl Dettmer.

Marvin was a life-long member of St. Paul Lutheran Church where he served as Councilman and Sunday School Superintendent. He was also a 50+ year member of the American Legion Post #23 in Auburn.
