Marvin Sandweiss passed away peacefully on October 10, 2021 at the age of 85. Beloved husband of 65 years to his middle school sweetheart Phyllis Sandweiss; son of the late Nat and Bernice Sandweiss. Loving father to Bruce (Caryn) Sandweiss, Tracy (Paul) Mellring, Steve (Joyce) Sandweiss; “Pawpy” to Lauren (Jeremy) Brenner, Jeremy (Stephanie) Levinson, Sydney Stein, Jacob Sandweiss, Nick, Megan and Matthew Mellring, Sarabeth, Nato and Zosia Sandweiss; great grandfather to Max and Ari Brenner, Callie Rose Levinson and Noah Stein. Brother-in-law to Barbara and Norman Hausfater, Rick (the late Mimi) Schuchet, Margo and Frank Miskit. Marvin will be missed by his family and many life-long close friends.
He was the founder and owner of Midwest Recovery Services and Midwest Autobody until his retirement at age 70. Marvin was a great athlete and played on traveling volleyball and softball teams until he was 62 years old, often with teammates much younger than him. He was also a card enthusiast his whole life, spending many days playing gin rummy at the “J”, where he was a fixture, and countless nights of poker with his many friends.
Marvin will be remembered by many during the last 29 years for his never-ending love, devotion and caring for grandson Nick, his constant companion. Being Nick’s guardian angel gave special meaning and purpose to Marvin’s life.
