Marvin Brown, 52, of Baker City, died Jan. 9, 2005, at Baker City of liver cancer.

At his request, there will be no service.

Marvin was born on Aug. 26, 1952, at Walla Walla, Wash. He grew up in Baker City where he met Theresa Hughes. They were married on Dec. 5, 1972.

Marvin worked much of his life in ranch-related jobs. He loved being outdoors, especially hunting and fishing. He was a cowboy without a ranch.

Marvin enjoyed pool and shuffleboard and played on the local teams most of his adult life. There he met many people who became lifelong friends and who will miss his ability to always have a good time, win or lose.

Survivors include his three children, Tina Pogue and Steven Brown of Baker City and Teri Villastrigo of Vale, and their mother, Theresa Copeland of Baker City and Rhonda Denton Brown of Baker City; six grandchildren, Stephanie and Corbin Pogue, Alen and Ryan Brown and Lucas and Mersaides Villastrigo; his mother, Donna Nitzell of Bouse, Ariz.; his sisters, Debbie Brown of Butte, Mont., and Lori Khem of Hillsboro; his brother, Wendall Brown of Baker City; and several aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society.
