Marvill R. Gaddy, Sr.

Died: March 9, 2018

Marvill Randolph Gaddy, Sr., 74, went to be with the Lord on March 9, 2018. He was born in Bedford, Virginia to the late William and Nina Gaddy on Christmas day 1943.

Marvill graduated from Princess Anne High School in 1962 and joined the United States Marine Corps in 1964. After serving in the military for four years, he was a master HVAC mechanical contractor and owner of Marvill Gaddy Company HVAC for 35 years.

Left to cherish his memory are his brother, Leighton S. Gaddy and wife Barbara of Virginia Beach; his three children: Selena Bentz and husband Dale of Virginia Beach, Marvill R.

Special thanks to Linda Doyle, Joe Claunch, Dave Bowling, Kevin Cassidy, Larry McCullough and Bill Ackerman.

Since the early 1970s, Marvill was an enthusiastic, God-loving member of the “Friends of Bill W. Fellowship.” His spiritual journey helped countless men and women on their path to recovery. Marvill lived the 12 Steps and was a living example of the Fellowship. As a trustee at Matt Talbot Retreat Group 45, Marvill attended its biannual retreats for many years.
