He was the second son of the late James P. Brown Jr. and Elvina Virginia Brown and brother of the late Cecil Brown, Raymond Brown and Sharon Brown.

Marvin was born in Upper Lake, California, and grew up in Lake County. He graduated from Lower Lake High School and was the king of football, and played basketball and baseball as well. He tried out for the San Francisco Seals, the San Francisco Giants Minor League baseball team. He was a youth coach for his son and nephews in baseball and basketball.

Later in his prime, he started the family men’s fastpitch softball team, The Tribe. When he retired from playing fast-pitch, he continued the tradition with his brothers and coached his son and nephews carrying on the Brown family tradition of fast-pitch.

Marvin served his country in the Vietnam War with the US Army. He worked for Pacific Gas & Electric Co. and retired after 31 years as a senior machinist. He was a true Oakland Raiders fan, an Oakland A’s fan and Golden State Warriors fan.
