We have lost a great man from this world, but Heaven has gained a wonderful angel. Marvin Pennington, age 80, from Daniels, WV, passed away on Thursday, November 2nd, at the WVU Medical Center after fighting a very courageous battle.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Guy Leonard Pennington and Ruby Lee Keaton Pennington; and his half-brother, Earl Pennington.

Lauderdale, FL; Janie's two sons, Andrew and his wife Nichole, and their children Peyton and Parker; and Adam, and his daughter, Andi Shea. Mr. Pennington is also survived by his brother, Mac Ray Pennington and his wife, Barbara; and a large extended family, dear friends and a loving church family.
Marvin was retired from Nationwide Insurance and loved the time that he spent as a basketball official for over 40 years. He was a veteran, having served in the United States Army for 18 years.
