"My sympathies to the Bogatzke family. I remember our times visiting Marvin at his farm with my mom(Marlene) and sister (Laura), fishing and helping, or at least trying to help on the farm, going to Dairy Queen, and many other fun times. He'll be missed. I know he's at peace with my mom and other family laughing and sharing fun stories. Enjoy your time with those who are special in your life. Love The Radtke family - John, Debbie, Ryan, and Tess. "
