Olden Jackson says:

Marvin was at the PMEL when I first arrived in 1976 and was still there when I returned again in 1986. He extended a warm heart and a hand of friendship to all, both inside and outside the workplace. He will be missed.
My sympathy to all his family.

Dana Smith says:

Mr. Goss was such a great man. He always had good things to say when you came about. He also played great music and enjoyed it so. Him and Mrs Minnie were such a happy couple. You could tell that the love was there. He will be missed very much. Prayers to the family.
