Marvin Frederick Reinke was born 1944 to Louis and Doris Reinke. He grew up on the family farm with his five siblings. The one thing Marvin knew for sure is he did not want to become a farmer! So instead, he went to an technical art college in California, where he met the love of his life, Elizabeth, for the first time. When the Vietnam War broke out, decided to enlist and go to officer’s school for the Air Force, and he and Beth lost touch. It was in the Air Force that Marvin discovered his love for photography. His department in the Air Force not only developed aerial photographs, they also developed pictures from the moon landing in 1969.

It was when Marvin ended up back in California and was attending school at USC that he and Beth reconnected at a campus youth church. This time he vowed not to lose touch, and they were married on September 6, 1969. Marvin and Beth moved around for several years, and started a family of their own in 1971 with the birth of their daughter Julie, and the family expanded when daughter Susan was born in 1977. In 1980, the family of four moved to Twin Falls, ID and Marvin built his first house. Even up to 2020, 40 years after building that house, Marv would still refer to it as his “new house”.

In Twin Falls, Marvin started Reinke Custom Carpentry, built several more new houses, and specialized in custom built cabinetry. His artistic nature lives on in his woodwork, which is not only in the houses he built, but in the church he loved – Immanuel Lutheran Church.

In his retirement, Marvin loved:
- Photography, especially once he purchased his first drone and could do aerial photography.
- Animals, especially his cats. It was rare for him to be sitting down without a cat in his lap.
- All things tech. He was an early adopter and loved showing off his toys.
- Recording the church services at Immanuel Lutheran Church. At first for radio broadcast, and later video recordings, which allowed home bound church members the ability to hear the word when they could not physically attend church.

Marvin was a firm believer in Christ and the resurrection. We all know that when the Lord brought him home on May 25, 2020, Marvin was exactly where he wanted to be – at home with God.

Marvin was preceded in death by Louis (father) and Doris (mother) Reinke, as well as his daughter Tayze Dunae (nee Julie Reinke), and his grandson PJ Burnett. He is survived by his wife of almost 52 years, Elizabeth, and his daughter Susan Herzog (Dylan), as well as his siblings Sharlene, Chris (Betty), Carolyn (Tom), Gerald (Karen), and Marian (Jay), as well as numerous cousins (it’s a big family!).

Marvin’s service will be held at Immanuel Lutheran Church on Friday June 5, 2020, at 2pm. Flowers or cards can be sent to Reynold’s Funeral Chapel (2466 Addison Ave. E, Twin Falls, ID 83301), or consider making a donation to Immanuel Lutheran Church to assist in the continuation of the radio and internet broadcasts.
