Resided in: San Antonio, Texas

Marvin Benton Jr. known to some as Bubba and to many as Uncle Bubba was the 3rd child born to Marvin Benton Sr. and Ella Mae Benton on September 21, 1959 in Guadalupe County, Texas.

Marvin grew up and received his education in Guadalupe County.  He was employed at Davis Chicken Plant in Seguin as well as Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels, Texas as a greeter.  He was an avid bike rider loving to ride his bike around the community before he became ill.  Marvin was very generous, loyal, and had an enormous heart.  Though he never married, he was surrounded by the love of his family and friends.

Marvin became unable to perform his usual life activities after battling illnesses to which he unfortunately succumbed to in the hospital on July 6, 2023.  Greeting him at the Gate of Glory were his parents, grandparents, sister Darlene and niece Timika.  Marvin is at peace with his Maker.  His absence will be felt and memory will be cherished in the hearts of all especially to Rhyis and Semiyah who he truly loved. For those who knew him you knew that those two brought many smiles and great laughter to him when they were around.

He leaves to cherish his memory sister, Diane Carthorne, Callie Benton, Charlene Benton; nieces and nephew, Alta Benton, Lantoya Holmes, and Demetrica Ellis, Tammy Pinson and Lyzette Carthorne.  His memory will also live on with his thirty plus great nieces and nephews, fifteen great-great nieces and nephews and his many cousins and friends.

Special thanks to ResCare Community Living for enabling him to remain at home as long as possible possible to be with family.
