Marvin Fredrick Korn, 96, of Stanley, WI, passed away March 31,
2018 at River Bend Senior Living in Rochester, MN while under the
care of Heartland Hospice Care.
He was born March 23, 1922, in Stanley, at the home of his parents
Fredrick and Olga (Gisvold) Korn. He graduated from Stanley High
School, attended Eau Claire Technical Institute, served in the Army
Air Force during WWII, and worked as an accountant for a variety of
businesses including Northern States Power Co. and Cardinal Corp.
in Stanley WI. In his final job prior to retiring, he partnered with
Glenn and Sheryl Hayward starting and growing a successful
business, BTI, Inc. of Thorp WI.
During his adult life, he pursued many activities with golf lasting into
his early 90’s. He instilled his love for the game of golf to his wife
and children. To his credit he honed a scratch golf handicap, with
three holes in one, and was shooting bogie golf from the red tees
late into his 80’s. He was an avid sports fan with the Green Bay
Packers, Wisconsin Badgers, and St. Louis Cardinals landing
at the top of his list. Marvin also prided himself with his family, home,
lawn, and organization.
The family wishes to extend their appreciation to the incredible staff
at River Bend Senior Living and additional care and support from
Heartland Hospice Care, Visiting Angels, and Home Instead Senior
Care. The compassion, empathy, and understanding given to
Marvin and his family eased his passing.
