Marvin House

February 7, 1938 — April 28, 2022

New Brighton

Marvin J. House, of New Brighton, passed away on Thursday, April 28, 2022 at St. Anthony Health Care Center. He was 84 years old.

Marvin was born on February 7, 1938 in St. Paul, MN to parents, Gail and Caroline, one of eleven children. He was an East St. Paul boy through and through. At age eleven, Marvin started delivering papers. He worked for Twin Cities News/St. Paul Pioneer Press throughout his career. A hard-worker, Marvin held down many jobs often juggling two or three at a time.

Marvin met and married Mary Hemming. The couple moved to New Brighton where they raised four children. The family spent their vacation times traveling the U.S. on vast road trips. An American history buff, Marvin used the trips as educational opportunities for his kids.

A proud American, Marvin enjoyed trivia and card games. He had a love of antique cars and could be found on Sunday afternoons engrossed in Nascar racing. At other times, Marvin would gather the family together for popcorn nights watching Wild Kingdom and Disney movies. Every Halloween he made chili.

Marvin was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Mary; siblings, George, Matilda, and Charles.

He is survived by children: Kathy (Joe) Knopik, Karen Chesborough, Dan House, and Dale (Kati) House; 8 grandchildren: Jason (Marie) House, Michelle House, David House, Daniel House, Amanda House, Kevin House, Jesse House, and Sean Bunce; 5 great-grandchildren: Noah, Madison, Abigail Landon, Rylah; siblings: Frank, Jeanette, Louise, Delrose, Richard, Carol, and Robert; many nieces and nephews; other loving family and friends.
