Obituary for Marvin Heard

Marvin Heard was born to Dale and Ruth (Ford) Heard on June 26, 1932 in Sibley, Iowa. At the age of five, he moved with his family to a farm near Lake Wilson, Minnesota where he attended country school in Murray County through the eighth grade. In 1951, he was united in marriage to Laura Cullen at St. Martin Catholic Church in Woodstock, Minnesota. Following their marriage, they lived and farmed near Woodstock. Later, he began hauling milk which he did for 47 years. A few weeks ago, he was admitted to Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He died there on Monday, January 10, 2011 at the age of 78 years, five months and 14 days.

Marvin was a member of St. Martin Catholic Church. He loved playing canasta, fishing, mowing grass, and woodworking. He was a collector of R.S. Prussia china and made many friends across the U.S.A. He enjoyed hard work, watching the Twins, and spending time with his family and friends. He also enjoyed time at the cabin, especially in the boat.

He is lovingly remembered by his wife of almost 60 years, Laura Heard of Woodstock, Minnesota; his daughter, Carol and her husband Robert Ratliff of Watertown, South Dakota; three sons, Daryl Heard of Woodstock, Minnesota, Leslie Heard of Rapid City, South Dakota, and Dale and his wife Teresa Heard of Woodstock, Minnesota; 14 grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; several nieces and nephews; and many other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his beloved son, Edward; his parents; four brothers; and an infant sister.
