Marvin Presser was born in Fort Peck, Montana to Frank and Esther on April 19th, 1939 and passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family in Billings, Montana on December 18th, 2015 from complications of a stroke after hip surgery.

Marvin was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend. He loved animals and some of his favorite moments were spent surrounded by his dogs in the garage at the Fort Peck cabin. He passed on his love for animals to many of his children and grandchildren.

He had many talents, including writing, carpentry, storytelling, and handling the Eggebrecht girls. He had a passion for history and published a book on the history of Wolf Point and the surrounding area. He was currently working on a second book about early Wolf Point basketball.

He had an amazing sense of civic pride and was involved in many successful businesses and organizations including High Plains Motors (GM dealership), Western Bank and KVCK radio station. He tirelessly promoted the place he called home through organizations such as Lions Club, Elks Club, W.P. Chamber of Commerce, the City of Wolf Point and contributed his time and talents to numerous other organizations and projects.

Marvin married Kay Eggebrecht on July 8th, 1957 in Wolf Point. He is survived by Kay and his brother Butch, his animals Dakota, Molly, Benji, Max, Brandy, Shorty and a couple of kids and several grandchildren.

Marvin was preceded in death by his sisters Cheryl and Joyce; brothers Franklin and Lyle; his parents Frank and Esther; pets shorty, Fritz, Wolfgang, Emma Kay, Emmy Lou, Billy Bob, Maggie, Barney, Bozo, and numerous puddy cats.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in honor of Marvin to the W.P. gym floor replacement project (payable to WPHS) or the W.P. Pound Puppies. Please send both to High Plains Motors, 331 Front Street, Wolf Point, MT 59201. At his request no services will be held. Cremation has taken place.

We will miss you!

  4. Kay I am so sorry for your loss Marvin was a wonderful man.

My prayers are with you Mari and Jeff. RIP Marvin

  5. My sincere sympathies for your loss. Marvin was a pillar of the community and I will miss his smile, his wave and his truck with pooches looking out the windows. Praying that in time your sorrow will be replaced with wonderful memories.

    My deepest sympathies for your loss. It is difficult at any time of year; however, in late December is more emotional (as I have been through it). Remember all of the things Marvin loved and keep them close you your hear as you heal. Marvin was a huge contributor to the Wolf Point Community and his absence will be noted many times while those around him begin to cope.

    Kay and family. Bill and I are so sorry to hear of Marvin’s passing. He was always such a kind generous man to us while we lived in Wolf Point those 30 years. Our thoughts and prayers to you all.

  8. Marvin was a true credit to his family and community. He always had a positive outlook, especially when it came to Wolf Point. He will be missed! I will miss visiting with him at “grizz” football games.

  9. Marvin is my second cousin. We saw each other as youngsters, but never had the chance to get to know each other. I have his book and we communicated by email several times.

    Please accept my condolences. I am sorry we didn’t have a closer relationship.

  11. Not only has the community of Wolf Point lost a notable and accomplished civic-minded and Christian gentleman, I have lost a true friend and mentor. When I first started working at Western Bank of Wolf Point in 1975, Marvin was there to guide and counsel me on how best to be of service to our customers as a community banker. He was accomplished in so many disciplines that one who knew him could reasonably call him a 20th Century Renaissance Man. I appreciated his wisdom, penchant for hard work and unselfish dedication to the promotion and well-being of Wolf Point. Kay, Jeff, Mari and family, thank you for sharing your Marvin with the rest of us. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and surely, your many fond memories of Marvin will be a comfort to you at this difficult time.

  12. Sorry for your loss. You’re all in my thoughts and prayers. Marvin was a great guy who’s smile could warm anybodys heart he will be missed.

  14. Jeff, it was great seeing you after all these years a few months ago and reminicising of some of our high school antics. It was also good to catch up on your family.

    My sincere condolences to the Presser families. Last week I had Marv on my mind and thinking that I should try to contact him to see if I could still buy one of his books on Wolf Point history.

    To Marv’s family, I’ve come to know Marv through his great interest in the history of Wolf Point, and I appreciate his willingness to share that knowledge with us all. There were many things I didn’t know about my father, Bob Lowry, that Marv revealed to me! During his writing process, he and I shared email and txt conversations about Wolf Point basketball history as he picked my brain for any and all info I had of my father’s early career. We will miss Marv, but I rest assured that he’s today spending it happily with Dad and others, learning about everything relating to Wolf Point basketball! We are blessed to have had Marv in our lives.
