  2. Marv’s great smile and friendly handshake welcomed me into the Calgary Stampede Promotion committee over 30 years ago.
    Marv’s dedication, wisdom, kindness and sense of fun was infectious. Many stories and experiences will be repeated and never forgotten. Thank you for your friendship! Happy Trails to You!
    Sincere Condolences to all the family, especially Corkey, his lovely wife and companion.

    Marv will be truly missed. He was one of the best! He had a great sense of humour and loved promoting the Calgary Stampede. We had such great fun during his term as Chairman of the Promotion Committee during the 1988 Olympics. I truly enjoyed volunteering with both Marv and Corkey – they were quite a team, promoting both the City as well as the Stampede. As sad as it may be, Marv is now with Corkey in the great roundup in the sky. Deepest sympathy to Brydon, Sheri and their families.

    Brydon and Sheri,
    Our deepest condolences for the loss of your dad. I worked with Marv for years at the travel agency with Pat Grace. He used to take me for lunch during Stampede which was so sweet and kind of him. My husband and I went to Europe with your parents to help out on his battlefield tour. We really got to know your parents on that trip. They were so young at heart. We walked along the Seine river for hours in Paris – they were 30 years older than us but boy did they keep up! We walked them all through the Louvre and they never just wanted to meet us at the coffee shop and rest – they were always game to do what we wanted to do. Seeing the Notre Dame on fire this week made me sad thinking of them when we explored the cathedral together. Your parents hold a very special place in our heart. We are happy that they are reunited again. We miss then both. They were so kind and gentle. All our best to you during this difficult time. Keep the good memories you have close to your heart.
    Love. Grant and Carolyn Straub

  6. I remember being on Promotion’s when there was Oh 30 or 40 of us. Marv was one of those originals. Always a great pleasure to be around him, weather at a meeting, or doing an event together. He had such a good heart.. And always a good story. I’d never be able to fill his “boots”.. My thought’s go out to Brydon & Sheri. Your and Corkeys memories will go on forever.

  7. Brydon and Sheri,
    My sincere condolences to the two of you and your family.
    I remember my first day I met Marv at a Stampede breakfast, I was the rookie and very nervous, he took me under his wing and taught me everything I know today as far as mixing,flipping and setting up the grills for pancake breakfasts for the kids at schools.
    It did not end at the Stampede we would meet at Humpty’s and have a pan scramble ( seemed to be his favorite), we also would get together at the Coast Plaza hotel for Sunday brunch with Corkey and Marv.
    I remember his humor, his smile and he always gave back, leftover pancakes he would take them to the mustard seed, he taught me these attributes and I continue them to this day, although I cannot be the same, as mentioned in other messages his boots are way to big to fill.
    Thank you for sharing Marv with us at the Stampede Promotion, he will never be forgotten. My thoughts and Prayers to the Foote Family
