It is with a heavy heart that I share the passing of Marvin B. Sallop, our former TSD Superintendent from 1987-1997 earlier today. His passing almost seems unreal to many of us who had just re-connected with Marvin at the GAFD Gala 3 weeks ago after a long hiatus. He was truly moved to see so many old friends and commented that he hadn’t been called Mr. Sallop in 25 years.
We had plans to catch up more completely and I had hoped to get him back on campus, but life sometimes has other plans for us.
Marvin’s death was quite sudden—instigated by kidney failure which appears to have been so advanced that it caused a complete shut down of all his body organs. Life support was the only intervention and after several days the family made the difficult decision to let him go.
Our love and deepest sympathy are extended to Marvin’s adult children, Mara, Lori and Ben, who came of age in the old Superintendent’s house on this campus, his sister Gail, his beloved grandchildren and his former wife Shelly.
Services will held on Monday, January 9 at Cook-Walden Cemetery, 14501 North IH-35 Pflugerville, TX 78660. Visitation with the family starts at 10:00 am at the Texas Liberty Veterans Section outside. Services will follow at 11:00 am. Celebration of Life after services will be at Parkway Bible Church, 303 E. Pflugerville Parkway, Pflugerville, TX. at the Church office entrance, Room 204.
Rest in Peace MBS.
