Marvin Donald Maurer, 89, of New Berlin entered into rest on Wednesday, June 8, 2022 at Riverwood in Lewisburg, PA.
Born on June 12, 1932 in Union Township, Union County, to George Benjamin Maurer and Mary Catherine (Leiby) Maurer, both deceased.
Marvin graduated from Lewisburg High School.
On November 27, 1952, Marvin married his high school sweetheart, Carrol Louise Baker, in the First Lutheran Church in Lewisburg. They were married for 61 years. Carrol passed away on November 17,2014, ten days before their 62 anniversary.
One month after his marriage, Marvin joined the Army and served until 1954. He then worked as a tool and die maker in various companies starting his work employment as either the first or second employee hired by QE Manufacturing. He worked for AMP and he ended his working days with retirement from the "The Big House" Lewisburg Federal Penitentiary teaching tool and die and sheet metal working to the inmates. As avid campers, he and Carrol were members of The Scotty Club for many years. He was a Mason, a member of the VFW, a member of the New Berlin American Legion
(serving as Color Guard at many functions), and a member of Emmanuel United Church of Christ (installing and operating their first sound system). But his first love was playing his steel guitar, starting at age 14 with his last performance on January 4, 2022. He played for square dances at the fire company, parades with the Zafar Grotto Band and any other time he was asked. Even while in the Army in Japan he had his steel guitar with him!
