Marvin Schwaeber, 86, of Whitsett, NC, passed away on September 30, 2021.
A native of Queens, NY, he was the husband of Athina (Tina) Kaminis, who survives, and the son of Henry Schwaeber and Helen Silverstein Schwaeber, both deceased. In addition to his wife of 28 years, survivors include two sons, Jeffrey Schwaeber (Wendy), Steven Schwaeber (Christine), a stepdaughter, Connie Conklin, a stepson Christopher Medina (Gay); and five grandchildren, Athina Williams (Graham), Connor Conklin (Alicia), Aaron Schwaeber (Samantha), Hannah Schwaeber and Elijah Schwaeber.
Marvin started his career with Western Electric as a draftsman and retired as a Sr. Electrical Engineer from AT&T with 33 years of service. He served in the National Guard and was a former member of the Burlington Kiwanis Club and the Telephone Pioneers of America.
Marvin was a master woodworker and his passions included cycling, model airplanes and hiking. There was nothing he put his hand to that was not perfectly crafted. It brought Marvin and Tina joy to hike many National Parks and to find the best location to revel in the sunrise together. He was dearly loved and will be missed.
The family will receive friends at Rich & Thompson Funeral and Cremation Service in Burlington on Monday, October 4, 2021 from 2:00 until 4:00 p.m. A Celebration of Life will be held at the residence following the service.
