Marvin Waters
Marvin Waters Marvin Richard Waters, age 72 of Jersey, died on April 17, 2015. He was born in Monroe on July 4, 1942 to the late James Reuben Waters and the late Ella Shackleford. He is survived by his daughters and son-in-law, Renea and Rick Hall of Monroe, Sandy Norris of Monroe, and Marsha LaFontaine of Monroe; son and daughter-in-law, Bruce and Vicky Waters of Monroe; sisters and brother-in-law, Mary and Glen McDaniel of Jefferson, and Deborah Jackson of Monroe; brother and sister-in-law, Lonnie Waters, of Monroe, Rick Waters of Atlanta, Wayne and Lisa Waters of Monroe; 8 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren with many nieces and nephews. He was a loving and caring daddy, papa, brother, uncle, and friend. Although he is no longer with us, he left us with a lifetime of memories that we will cherish forever. He met his true love, Frances Dalton, when they were just teenagers. They shared almost 49 years of marriage until God called her home in 2010. Although he had several jobs over his 72 years of his life, he seemed his happiest when he worked with his wife as caretakers of Old Salem campground on Lake Oconee. He truly seemed to love that job and working side by side with her, was his joy. During these last few years of sickness, he found great happiness spending time with those that he loved. Although the light of our lives will be dimmer without him, we find much comfort in knowing that he passed peacefully in his sleep.
