Marvin Marks was honored by the Colfax Veterans of Foreign Wars, Jess E. Taylor Post 2003, on Memorial Day 2012.

Marvin Lewis Marks, who was born primarily of California Native American descent, enlisted in the U. S. Air Force when he was 19 years old and served his country from 1960-1964 as a Jet Engine Mechanic, plus 2 years active duty, and was honorably discharged as an Airman First Class. He was stationed at Mather Air Force Base in Sacramento from 1961-1963 where he met and married his wife, Linda Maldonado, who is a Native American from the Colfax area. His in-laws were then long-time residents of Colfax and upon each visit, Marvin felt more and more at home in the area. That is why, when Marvin retired, he and his wife moved back to the area to be closer to their kids and grandchild. Marvin passed away suddenly at home at age 65. He was a kind, thoughtful, generous, fun-loving person with a great sense of humor. Marvin loved the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and enjoyed the beauty and peace of living in Placer County.
