"I've done my work, I've sung my song.
I've done some good, I've done some wrong. Praise the Lord!
I fought the good fight, I finished my course, I kept the faith."
Marvin Lamont Graham, born on April 16th, 1964, in Bronx, New York, to surrogate mother Esther Overby, was embraced by the late Verdell R. Graham and Ozell Jones through adoption. Marvin's early education took place at PS 146 Elementary School in New York, and he proudly graduated from Hannah High School of Pamlico, South Carolina, as part of the Class of 1983. Following his high school journey, he attended Job Corp.
A devoted parishioner, Marvin actively participated in the life of Pee Dee Baptist Church in Pamlico, South Carolina, serving in various capacities, including the brotherhood organization, Usher's Ministry, Men's Choir, Kitchen Committee, and any other role where he was needed, all under the guidance of Pastor Jermaine Walker.
In July 2015, Marvin made his home in Conway, North Carolina, residing with the late sister, Cynthia Elaine Futrell. Embracing Christian Fellowship at Zoar Missionary Baptist Church in Pendleton, North Carolina, Marvin continued his mission for Christ. He was an active member of the Male Chorus and contributed to the Food Pantry and Nursing Home Ministry.
On Monday, February 12th, 2024, surrounded by the care of ECU Health Roanoke Chowan Hospital in Ahoskie, North Carolina, Marvin answered God's call from earthly labor unto eternal rest. He was preceded in death by his adopted parents, Verdell R. Graham and Ozell Jones, and one brother, John Robert Graham.
