Marvin Dennis Hohbein was born on October 4, 1942, in Judson, ND, the son of John and Martha (Siegfried) Hohbein. He attended school in Judson and Mandan. He married Alice Becknell and five children were born to this union. On August 23, 1985, Marvin was united in marriage to the love of his life Lois Green at First Lutheran Church in Mandan. Two children were born to this union. Marvin started his career as a mechanic in Mandan, working in several service stations, eventually becoming the mechanic for the school system for many years. He went on to teach auto mechanics at Mandan High School and auto body at Bismarck State College.

After losing his leg in 1985, he went on to pursue a career in prosthetics. After graduating with a Bachelors Degree in Prosthetics, the family moved to Missouri where Marvin started working at Shriner's Hospital for Children. At Shriner's, Marvin impacted the lives of many people with his work. He was most fond of the idea that someone benefitted from his work every day. In his spare time, Marvin enjoyed antiquing and collecting. There was never a garage sale, flea market, or auction that wasn't worth driving to.
