Marvin Gene Turney was born July 22, 1945 to the late Earnest Turney Sr. and the late Mary Turney in Hartselle, AL.  He departed this life on January 10, 2021 at Huntsville, Hospital.

Marvin attended Morgan County Training School in Hartselle, AL. After graduation he went on to Nashville Christian Institute to fulfill his calling of being a pastor, where he graduated in 1968.

Marvin retired from BASF formerly Englehard where he worked for 40 plus years and he had been a pastor for just as long. He was the pastor of Pennylane Church of Christ in Hartselle, AL and was an active member until his death.

Marvin was a exceptionally good person, he always wore a smile and was willing to help anyone. The love he had for his late wife Mary of 50 plus years, and his family was a perfect example of what love is. Marvin was what you would call a thoroughbred.

Marvin is preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Mary Turney; sister, Marie Smith and brother, Earnest Turney, Jr.
