“Marvin Sellers was an awesome and enthusiastic young man. His enthusiasm actually lit up a room when he entered. He could bring anyone out of a slump, and would never leave until he did. He worked very hard in any job, but his love was for people and making sure they were they were smiling. He lived for a while in the Janaro Ranch in Redwood Valley and was wonderful with their patients, and with all of the young people everywhere. He was a born leader from the minute he entered the door, and took that position seriously. Everyone of any age knew Marvin because he made the rounds to meet people and engage in a meaningful conversation. He was the son everyone would want, and would have been an adult who could make a huge difference in the world around him. ” - Laura Johnston Kohl
