Sergeant Marvin Bishop (age 36) passed away peacefully on October 5th, 2023, with his loving family by his side.
A distinguished memorial service honoring Sgt. Bishop was held at 12 noon on Thursday, October 12, 2023 at Abundant Life Word Fellowship in Eatonton, GA.
Born October 20, 1986, in Atlanta, GA, Marvin lived his rambunctious young life in Jasper County with his three siblings, Kelly, James, and Matthew, along with many cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends nearby. After graduating from Jasper High School, he enlisted in the United States Marines; there Marvin served valiantly for eight years and participated in many tours of service, including Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan plus others in Honduras, Cairo, Egypt, and Shanghai, to name a few.
Sgt. Marvin was strong-willed, but he also had an enormous heart and wonderful sense of humor. He was a fun and spirited soul. Generous, loyal, and brave, Marvin was full to the brim with knowledge gained through a multitude of life experiences. He was a radio operator, martial arts instructor, security guard, IT tech, artist, and even video game developer—he was that clever. Marvin took on many passions, a major one being the coding and interactive game developing where he utilized his incredible artistic talents. He used that media to express himself and found comfort and peace in capturing the essence of nature and recreating it in a virtual setting. That very passion led Marvin to enroll in Savannah College of Art & Design to further his career.
Marvin was a beautiful person inside and out. His smile was so stunning it would light up the whole room. He was so kind and passionate, and he cared very deeply for the people around him; he made a huge impact on many lives. Marvin will be remembered for that, for all the heart he shared with his friends and family. He truly loved each of them, and if you knew him, you knew it—especially his nieces and nephew. When his time came, Marvin carried himself with dignity and strength, full of love for those who went before him. He will be forever missed. Until we meet again.
To cherish his memory, Marvin leaves: his parents, Orlinda Bishop of Monticello and Matthew Bishop, Jr. of Eatonton; five siblings, Matthew Bishop III, James Bishop, Kelly Bishop Francine Anderson, and Barbara Griffin; two nieces, Ayana and Zariah Bishop; one nephew, Matthew Bishop IV; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, loving friends, and brothers in arms.
“Seeing death as the end of life is like seeing the horizon as the end of the ocean.”
