Marvin Lyle Schreiber

Marvin Lyle Schreiber, 75, hung up his hat and put away his saddle and boots, on Feb. 1, 2009, at his Eagle Point ranch.
    
He was born in Fargo, N.D., to Chris and Ellen Schreiber, and graduated from Oak Grove Lutheran Seminary, in Fargo.
   
During his teen years he met Marilyn A. Peterson. They were married in 1951 and headed west, first to Couer’d Alene, Idaho. He moved to Seattle where he started his career in the Adhesive Division of American Marietta. He was part of developing the adhesive on the light lanes you still see and use. In 1960, he was transferred to sales in Medford. He stayed with the company through all the name changes and retired with Georgia Pacific as senior salesman.
   
Outside of the love he had for his family, Mr. Schreiber had a passion for the outdoors as a hunter and fisherman. But it’s his love for animals, and mostly the Arabian horse, that brought him so much joy. He was a member of the Pacific Crest Arabian Horse Association.
   
Survivors include his wife of 58-years, Marilyn; his son, Marvin L. (Bud) Schreiber Jr., of Orlando, Fla.; daughters, Renee (Darby) Meyer, of Savannah, Ga., Roxanne (Steven) Chandler, of Moscow, Idaho, Ramona (Michael) Butchko, of Silver Spring, Md., six grandchildren,  a great-granddaughter, and sister, Phyllis (Leo) Schreiner. He was preceded in death by a brother and a sister.
   
The memorial service for Mr. Schreiber was held at Zion Lutheran Church in Medford officiated by retired Pastor Bob Larson.
