Marvin Post

Doon, IA: Marvin Post, 76, of Doon, Iowa, died Wednesday, May 19, 2021 in Doon. Funeral services will be held Monday, May 24, at 11:00 AM at the Doon United Reformed Church with Pastor Peter Kolb of Doon First Reformed Church officiating. The service will be livestreamed at http://www.sermonaudio.com/doonurc. Burial, with military rites, will be prior to the service at 10:00 AM at Hillside Cemetery of Doon. Visitation, with the family present, will be held Sunday, May 23, from 3:00-5:00 PM at Porter Funeral Home in Rock Valley, Iowa. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to the Doon American Legion.     Marvin Simon Post, the son of Simon and Gertrude (Meendering) Post, was born April 18, 1945 in Hudson, South Dakota. Marv proudly served his country in the United States Navy. He received his GED and earned an associate’s degree. He started his own electrician business and later Sparkle Carwash Sales and Services, which he owned with his son. Marv’s hobbies included farming, taking motorcycle trips, going on Jeep rides, and he was always up for any outdoor adventure. He enjoyed going on hog hunting trips, fishing trips, and hunting deer with his cross bow.    Marv’s patriotism was second to none. He was a lifetime American Legion member and served as commander for several years. Marv was also a member of Doon First Reformed Church. He loved to cook and mess up the kitchen. Marv enjoyed watching his grandkids play sports and never missed a game. You could always find him in the stands cheering for the Alcester Hudson Cubs. Marv took care of the flowers in Doon and he would tell you that they were the best flowers in the area. Marv would often say, “If you enjoy what you do, you will never work a day in your life.”    Marv is survived by his wife, Joan; daughters, Shana (Brett) Doering of Alcester, South Dakota, Bobbi Jo (Lance) Johnson of Ridgway, Colorado; sons, Monte (Rachel) Post and Michael Post, both of Sioux Falls, South Dakota; 4 grandchildren, Gavin Doering (Jordyn Berg), Elly Doering, Shenia Doering (Gabe King), and Jaxon Doering; siblings, Kenneth (Tracy) Post, Willard (Janet) Post, and Wilma Van Bemmel, all of Doon; and siblings-in-law, Evertt (Hedy) Van Maanen, Mary Ann (Earl) De Bey, Linda (Bruce) Kooima, Marv (Melinda) Van Maanen, Randy (Sue) Van Maanen, and Brad Van Maanen.    He was preceded in death by his parents, Simon and Gertrude; and brother-in-law, Alvin Van Bemmel.  Service Program Click to download / open

I remember helping with the house build. Shana and I dumped insulation into the machine while Marv sprayed it all over. He always welcomed us over when they put in the trampoline (or maybe he just hid). Thank you for your service to the military and to the Doon community. Many prayers for peace.

Post family, especially Monty, I want to express my deepest sympathy to you in your very sudden loss. I am Mardel mom and I know what a shock this would have been to him. He enjoyed working at the car washes and he often talked of Marv and Monty. l am praying for all of you, Delores De Jong
