Grand Lake Remembers Marv Aiken

Golfing friends and other members of the Grand Lake golfing community remembered long time resident Marv Aiken by dedicating a plaque in his honor on the No. 8 tee box of the Grand Lake Golf Course. This is the same location where Marv’s wife Nancy died of an aneurism while playing a round with her husband in 1984. Marvin died a little over two years ago, but is still remembered by his golfing friends as the finest gentleman who ever put on a pair of goldfish spikes.

Officials of the Grand Lake golf Course, the Grand Lake Men’s Golf Club, Marvin’s daughter and family, as well as close friends of Marvin, all gathered at 8:30 a.m., on Saturday, June 22, and spoke respectfully and lovingly of him at the dedication ceremony, and a privately funded metal plaque, with Marvin’s name engraved on it, was attached to a new bench situated on the No. 8 tee box.

Marvin Aiken was one of the first members of the Grand Lake Golf Course and an original member of the Grand Lake Men’s Golf Club, holding several different positions over the years. He will be long remembered by his friends, his golfing buddies and the Grand Lake community as a true friend and the Grand Golfing Gentleman of Grand Lake.
