Marvin Lyle Schreiber, 75, hung up his hat and put away his saddle and boots, as he passed away on Sunday, Feb. 1, 2009, at his Eagle Point, Ore., ranch while surrounded by his wife and family, whom he dearly loved.

Marvin was born in Fargo, N.D., to Chris and Ellen Schreiber, and graduated from Oak Grove Lutheran Seminary, located in Fargo.

Durng his teen years he met Marilyn A. Peterson, who not only captivated his attention but his heart as well.

They married in 1951 and headed West first to Couer'd Alene, Idaho. He moved to Seattle and there he started his career in the Adhesive Division of American Marietta. He was part of developing the adhesive on the light lanes you still see and use. In 1960 he was transferred to sales in Medford,Ore., he stayed with the company through all the name changes and retired with Georgia Pacific as senior salesman.

Outside of the love he had for his family, Marvin had a passion for the great outdoors as a hunter and fisherman. But it's his love for animals, and mostly the Arabian horse that brought him so much joy.

Marvin was a member of the Pacific Crest Arabian Horse Association.

Schreiber Jr.(Bud), of Orlando, Fla.; daughters Renee (Darby) Meyer, of Savannah, Ga., Roxanne ( Steven) of Chandler, Moscow, Idaho, Ramona (Michael), Butchko, of Silver Spring, Md.; grandsons, Mark, Paul, Seth, and Brock; granddaughters, Noelle and Sarah; great-grandson, Christopher; and great-granddaughter, Emily; sister, Phyllis (Leo) Schreiner; and many nieces and nephews.
