Obituary

Clarence Henry Marvin, fondly known as Bing, passed away early Monday morning on January 2, 2023, at his home with his loving family by his side, as they have been through all the days of his life. He was 93 years old. A life-long resident of Colchester, he was born there on May 8, 1929, a son of Dwight Henry and Cecilia (Rathbun) Marvin. Bing was a graduate of Bacon Academy with the class of 1947 and soon after, went to work for a short time with Hamilton Standard before starting his own heavy equipment construction business known as CH Marvin Construction. Many homes and infrastructure in Colchester and the surrounding towns were developed with Bing’s workmanship. He was a member of the Linwood Cemetery Association where he opened and closed the graves for family, friends, and neighbors for many decades. In his free time, Bing loved gaming of all kinds, paraplaneing in his own back yard, or spending time at the Waterford Speed Bowl with the Marvin Racing crew. Bing was well known throughout the town of Colchester. He was always ready to lend a helping hand, share stories about the locals, past and present and most fondly, he will be remembered for his easy-going manner and salt of the earth nature. His passing will be sadly felt by all who knew him, especially his children and their spouses, Dennis (Marge) Marvin, Mike (Maureen) Marvin, Cindy (Tom) Prescott, Tim (Heidi) Marvin all of Colchester, siblings, Frances Brown and Flora Gustafson, both of Columbia, Reynold Marvin of Colchester; seven grandchildren; five great grandchildren and one great great grandson; a long-time friend, Claire Nadeau; and a host of extended family members and friends. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by five siblings, Edith Congdon, Loren Marvin, Dwight “Bumble” Marvin, Cecilia Rogers, Carolyn Marvin, and a grandson Dennis Marvin Jr. Calling hours will be held on Sunday, January 8th from 1 – 4 pm at the Aurora-McCarthy Funeral Home, 167 Old Hartford Rd,.
