Marvin was born in Jones County on August 20, 1926 the son of the late Leonard Eubanks and Annie Daugherty Eubanks. He was a member of Five Points Free Will Baptist Church and had a great love for his church family. Marvin served his country in the United States Army in Germany where he met his wife Gisela. They returned to the states and settled in New Bern, NC where he joined the North Carolina National Guard. After a brief stay in New Bern Marvin and Gisela moved to Washington, NC where he served as Shop Chief and Mess Sergeant. Marvin retired in 1986 using his mechanical skills to aid him in his lifetime hobby of repairing boat motors. When he had spare time he enjoyed fishing and if you were lucky you had a chance to enjoy what many called one of the best meals they ever ate as he loved cooking and was known for being one of the best cooks around.
Mr. Marvin is survived by a daughter: Rosie E. Douglas and husband Keith of Washington, NC; two sons Marvin L. Eubanks and wife Denise of Washington, NC; and Ted Eubanks and wife Roberta, six grandchildren: Jonathan Eubanks, Stuart Eubanks, Megan Douglas, Tyler Douglas, Alexandra Eubanks, Sophie Eubanks and eight great-grandchildren: Levi Eubanks, Luke Eubanks, Morgan Eubanks, MacKenzie Douglas, SaraBeth Woolard, Kyra Toppin, Koen Toppin and Eli Douglas. He was preceded in death by his wife of sixty years Gisela Villwock Eubanks, four sisters, a brother and great granddaughter: Rylen Eubanks.
