Marvin Wolf Cherrin passed away on September 10, 2023 at the age of 89 in Farmington Hills, Michigan. He leaves behind a loving family and a legacy of duty, resilience, creativity, humor, and love.

Marvin received his early education in Detroit, attending MacCulloch Elementary School, Durfee Intermediate School, and Central High School. At 14, he joined Cherrin Brothers Co., his family's wholesale distribution and packaging business. His fascination with the industry led to tireless work through his young adulthood, culminating in his role as in-house counsel.

Marvin’s academic journey included business administration studies at the University of Detroit, a BS in Packaging Technology from Michigan State University, and an LLD degree from Wayne State University Law School.

Marvin proudly completed US Air Force ROTC, accepting a commission as a second lieutenant. He later transitioned to the US Army's 11th Airborne Division, serving as an anti-aircraft artillery officer, and eventually joined the US Air Force Reserves in the Judge Advocate General Corps, achieving the rank of Captain.

In his professional life, Marvin was a dedicated member of the State Bar of Michigan for 55 years, with 43 of those years spent in private practice, earning the respect and admiration of his clients and colleagues.

Marvin Cherrin's legacy lives on through Windsor, Back Tonight, a (private) family history and memoir, and in the hearts of his children and grandchildren, continuing from one generation to the next.

Marvin was married to his beloved wife, Heléne Winitsky Cherrin, for 60 years and leaves behind three children: S.J. (Adria) Cherrin, Reneé, (Craig) Erlich, and P.J. Cherrin. He is survived by six cherished grandchildren: Alec, Brendan, and Natalie Cherrin, as well as Jonah, Sophie, and Molly Erlich. Marvin was the son of the late Mollie and Sam Cherrin, and he was predeceased by his brother, Michael (Rhonda) Cherrin.
