Marvin Edward Renick
January 14, 1938 to December 21, 2020
One of 4 children born to Ed and Ruth Renick from Sullivan MO. Brothers Dale, and Donald (dean) Renick, and sister Helen Streich. At 15 moved to Palmyra, NE where he worked as a drywaller for Kess Drywall and later worked for Jacob North Printing Co. as a bindery operator.
Marvin met the love of his life and married Carol Layton in 1961. Carol came home from work a week after being married and there was a note on the table that read “honey, went fishing won’t be gone long”. Carol never even knew Marv liked to fish!
They had two children son Mike Renick and daughter Cathy Wells. There were three grandchildren (Derek Wells, Brandon Wells, and Kiara Treinen), and one great grandchild (Vayda Wells).
In the late 80’s Marv fell in love with the auction and garage sale scene. It wasn’t long before he was hooked buying-refinishing-and selling antiques. The antique furniture business seemed to crash in 2000 and Marv switched his focus of furniture to just buying-collecting-reselling stuff, and he had A LOT of stuff!!
Marv had that small town charm, was easy going and had never met a stranger. He will be dearly missed by family, friends, and all he has crossed paths with.

I am so sorry to hear of Marv’s passing. I enjoyed getting to know him at my office. Such a wonderful man. Thinking of you.
Carol, I am truly sorry for your loss. Love always, Gina
My favorite uncle, no matter what he always made me smile. To aunt Carol
, Mike and Cathy uncle Marv is looking down on you with tender eyes and a loving heart.
So sorry to hear about Marv passing.. Marv was my neighbor for many years. He new alot about gardening and his lawn was always immaculate. So immaculate you almost thought it was vacuumed. I enjoyed it when he come over to talk to me when I was out sunbathing. He always asked about my brothers and sisters and would always tell me about what Cathy and Mike were up to. Nothing better than sitting outside on the porch drinking tea with Marv and Carol. When I would come to Lincoln. I always made sure to stop and say hi. Prayers for the family!! With Much Love, Lisa Marie (Walling) Rosoy
