Dr. Marvin T. Case, 84, formerly of Woodbury, MN and La Crosse, WI, passed away peacefully on May 3, 2019 at Avow Hospice House in Naples, FL after a courageous battle with cancer. He was the beloved husband to two amazing, inspirational wives: Married to Beverly Case for 42 years, who was his devoted partner and whose support enhanced his 31-career at 3M. Married to Carolyn Case for 17 years, who was his source of inner strength and brought him joy throughout his retirement years. He was blessed with two children, Steve Case and Lori (Rob) Simpson, and grandsons Connor and Ryan; two step-children, Eric (Valerie) Tidquist and Mary Beth Gaffney, and step-grandchildren Charlie, Cooper, and Taylor.
His prominent veterinary pathology career gave him immense satisfaction, beginning as a proud DVM PhD graduate of the University of Illinois, followed by 31 years of loyal service at 3M, including attainment of Corporate Scientist and Director of Toxicology. Upon retirement, Marv and Carolyn established a scholarship fund at the University of Illinois for aspiring students passionate about veterinary medicine research. Marv had a tireless work ethic and was a kind, gentle man to all who crossed his path.
There will be a celebration of his life at 11 a.m. on Friday, June 28, 2019 at Holmen Lutheran Church in the La Crosse, WI area (228 Morris Street, Holmen, WI). Visitation will be held at the church from 10 a.m. until the time of the service.
