Marvin Lester Wilson was the son of John Washington and Minerva Belle (Fugitt) Wilson; the grandson of Jackson B. and Emily (Stewart) Wilson and John Wesley and Charlotte (Barber) Fugitt. He was born October 6, 1906, in Stone County, and lived the early years of his life in Cass Township. He attended local schools through the eighth grade (there were no high schools in the area). He married Verna Fugitt in 1925, and they were parents of three children. His first wife died in 1940 and his oldest daughter died as an infant in 1927. He married Maxine Springer in 1941, and they were parents of three children. He lived his entire life in the Stone, Christian, Lawrence county areas. During his life he was engaged in various employment including operating a Ford auto sales and garage in Hurley with his brother Luie, owner and operator of school buses for the Hurley school district, MFA insurance agent (beginning in about 1950), and in later years, he was manager of the MFA exchanges in Hurley, Clever and Billings. Most of the time he was also engaged in farming, which seemed to keep his sons busy, milking cows, raising hogs and other farm work. He loved to raise a big garden and happily shared garden produce with friends and neighbors. He was active in the Masonic Lodge and the Eastern Star in Crane. He never really retired, but did slow down in later years. At the end of his life he developed an abdominal aortic aneurysm, which was surgically repaired, but he never fully recovered. He died at his home in Hurley of an acute myocardial infarction on February 20, 1974.
