Marvin E. Skelton

November 11, 1932 ~ May 6, 2014

Marvin E. Skelton, 81, of Entiat, WA, passed away May 6, 2014, at the home of his daughter, Norma (Richard) Crawley of Entiat. He was born November 11, 1932, to Walter and Nellie (Stout) Skelton in Hazel Valley, AR, where he was raised and educated. He was married to the love of his life, Dixie (Warford) Skelton, on May 7, 1955, in Fayetteville, AR, where they lived until 1958. The family moved to Entiat in 1958, when he began working on the construction of Rocky Reach Dam, and then to the Ardenvoir saw mill until he retired in 1979.

Survivors include two daughters, Norma (Richard) Crawley of Entiat, and Sharon (Scott) Dejarnett of Duvall, WA; a son, Marvin L. Skelton of Entiat; five grandchildren, Nathan (Dawn) Crawley of Wenatchee, Jason (Kristin) Crawley of Bonney Lake, WA, Dylan Crawley of Entiat, Amanda Dejarnett of Duvall, and Adam Dejarnett of Granite Falls, WA; great-grandchildren, Whitny, Pierce, Presley, and Reid Crawley, Landen Puc, and Aleah Vowels; three brothers, Warren Skelton of Lincoln, AR, Vearle Skelton of Fayetteville, AR, and Ervil Skelton of Decatur, AR; and one sister, Goldie Young of Elkins, AR. He was preceded in death by his wife, Dixie, on November 22, 1999; his parents; and his brothers, Melvin, Noah, Paul, Nolan, and Farrel.

We are so blessed to have had such an amazing role model; the love he had for the lord and his family will never be forgotten. We will always love and miss you, “Poppy Skelton”!

A Graveside Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 21, 2014, at the Pateros Cemetery in Pateros, WA, followed by a Celebration of Life potluck at 2:30 p.m. at the Crawley home in Entiat. Arrangements are by Telford’s Chapel of the Valley, East Wenatchee.
