Marvin was born December 13, 1937 on a farm near Dallas Center to Vern & Arlene Reynolds. The family moved to Redfield in 1942. Marvin graduated from Redfield High School in 1955. In 1956 Marvin went to Printing School at the University of Iowa.

In 1970, Marvin and Donna purchased the Redfield Produce Co from his uncle, Jess Reynolds, and changed the name to Redfield Feed & Supply.
