Thank you for your understanding and cooperation Marvin Marion Mincy, Jr. was born on August 8, 1937 in Orange Bend, Florida to Laci Adams Mincy and Marvin M. Mincy, Sr. He was educated by The Lake County Training Center in his former years. As he got older he attended Carver Heights High School. Upon graduating, he relocated to Rochester, New York in 1956. As an independent teenager he obtained employment at Strong Memorial Hospital as an Orderly for 10 years. He then returned to Florida and obtained employment with Lenhart Electric as a Certified Electrician for an additional 15 years. Deciding to change occupations, he obtained employment at The Daily Commercial as a Mailroom Supervisor for 15 more years before retiring in 1999. Marvin enjoyed family life by talking frequent vacations to various destinations, telling humorous jokes with much laughter and listening to his “oldies but goodies” music. He was affectionately known by his nick name, “Preacher” given to him by his grandfather who recalled seeing him as a little boy in church shouting and clapping his hands, just praising the Lord. He stated, “The boy must gone be a preacher!” and it stuck with him ever since. Marvin was preceded in death by his wife of 44 years, Sherry Denell Williams Mincy; parents: Marvin M.
