Obituary for Marvin Hillger

Print
Marvin Hillger, 90, passed away September 27, 2018, in Lubbock, Texas. Marvin was born June 14, 1928, in Hot Springs, New Mexico to Herman and Daisy Hillger. Marvin is survived by his daughter Carol Hillger; granddaughter Cassie Nesbitt and great-granddaughter Mackynzie; granddaughter Whitney Brown, her husband Caleb and great-grandson Jett, all of Lubbock, Texas. Marvin was preceded in death by his wife Joan, his son Scott, his brother Dave, and his parents.

Marvin attended New Mexico Military Institute for high school and then the University of New Mexico. He returned home to join the family business, Hillger Oil Company. He soon met the cute girl across the street and began a life of love and adventure. Marvin and Joan were partners in life, love, business, and certainly adventure. Whether driving across the US or travelling around the globe, Marvin and Joan loved to go places together. However, their favorite and best adventure was pouring themselves into the lives of their granddaughters, leaving a lasting legacy for their family.

In 1970, they moved to Las Cruces, but Marvin's favorite place was Elephant Butte Lake. He loved to fish and spent hours patiently pulling water skiers and all the kids on boogie boards. Evenings were spent under the beautiful stars on the deck of the lake house or around the domino table with his family, laughing the night away.

Although Marvin lived the last years of his life in Texas, his heart was always in New Mexico.
A graveside memorial of Marvin's life will be held October 6, 2018, at 10 a.m. in Las Cruces, New Mexico at the Masonic Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made in his honor to St. Jude's Children’s Hospital.
