HIRSCH, Marvin Simpson May 3, 1943 - November 8, 2017 Marvin Simpson Hirsch passed away peacefully with his wife of 52 years, Bev, by his side. He will be fondly remembered by his son, Mark and his four children; Tanner, Courtney, Brayden, and Zackery, and his son Rob (Christine). He also leaves to mourn, his sisters; Ann (Bill), and Verna (Melvin) in Huntingdon, Quebec, and Lavergne (Willie) in Waterdown. Marv had a busy and interesting life which included many friends along with numerous employment choices. As a young man he worked on dairy farms, in apple orchards, in textile mills, maintaining fish ponds, and on a horse farm which included helping with St. Bernard show dogs. His most cherished and favorite feat was when he built a stone wall by hand which measured 100 metres long, 1 metre high, and 1.5 metres wide. It took him two years to complete, and it still stands today. In 1969 Marv and Bev moved from Quebec to Hamilton, Ontario. Most of his employment here included; cnc machine set-up, repairs and maintenance involved with auto parts, as well as refurbishing aircraft equipment. Finally, he semi-retired and worked with his eldest son Mark in his truck repair shop as a parts driver until his illness in December 2016. Cremation has taken place.
