Langston, Marvin D. age 67, of Osseo, MN, passed away peacefully at home on November 6, 2022, with his beloved family by his side. Marvin was born on February 21, 1955, in Minneapolis, MN. An enthusiastic sports fan, Marv's primary news outlet was ESPN's SportsCenter, with America's all-time classic, baseball, his favorite. A naturally gifted athlete, Marv played baseball growing up with his extended family in North Minneapolis, valuing team play over individual glory. He followed all major league teams and players and could recite their stats and histories, correctly predicting that the Houston Astros would win the World Series this year. A lifetime hat collector, Marv wasn't fully dressed without a baseball cap.

Marvin served in the U.S. Army, later becoming a member of the Osseo-Maple Grove American Legion. Trained in culinary arts, Marv's love of eating was second only to his passion for serving his specialties at metro area restaurants, catered events and backyard BBQs. Always generous-hearted, Marv cherished his big extended family, proud Dad to four children, Papa to 13 grandchildren.
