Marvin Vogel, 89, passed away Sept 7. 2012. He was born in Pocahontas, Iowa, April 4, 1923. Growing up on his parent's farm, he was one of seven children born to Estella and Henry Vogel.
At 18, he joined the U.S. Marine Corps, VMB-613 Squadron during World War II and was deployed to the South Pacific and the Marshall Islands. Bud was also sent to the Iwo Jima and Okinawa Island conflicts, additional serving in the Korean War.
Back in the States he met Lucille Anderson, and was married July 14, 1951. Moving to southern California, Bud became a land surveyor working with Andreasen Engineering in Pomona, Cali. for 32 years. They have four children, Mike (Rochelle), Dave (Debbie), Doug (Myrna), and Diane Valentine (Vic). Growing up in Ontario, Calif. were wonderful years. Taking many trips in the "camper" were great times for us all. After retiring in 1983, Bud and Lucille moved to Hemet, Calif., spending seven years on a small ranch they had.
Then, in 1991, they moved to Las Vegas. Bud loved being a caring husband, married to Lucille for 61 years and truly enjoyed being a loving father. He loved watching his children grow up, get married and having families of their own. Bud really enjoyed life, his many grandchildren, traveling, wood working, and telling a good joke. Mostly he enjoyed spending the later years with Mom, remembering all the fun, the good times and the life they shared together. Burial was held privately at Riverside National Cemetery. Semper fi.
