Henry Kreikemeier and Elsie (Batenhorst) Kreikemeier welcomed their first child on January 3, 1937, and named him Kreikemeier. He was born on the family farm located close to Snyder. He began his educational career at St. Leo’s Catholic Grade School and then continued it at Snyder High School, from which he graduated in 1954. Following graduation, Marvin enlisted in the United States Army and was eventually stationed at Fort Riley as part of his service. After earning a commendable reputation while serving his country in the armed forces, he returned to his farm in Snyder.
Marvin and Joyce Chapman were wed on May 29, 1958, at the St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church in North Bend. The ceremony took place in North Bend. Marvin devoted his days to farming, and his evenings to hauling livestock around. He would frequently proclaim, “This ain’t work; it’s fun!” and I couldn’t agree more. After his first wife Joyce passed away in 1999, he wed Dorothy Brune on September 28, 2001, and the following year, the couple moved to West Point. Dorothy Brune had been his second wife. Joyce had passed away in 1999.
