At an early age, Marvin and his family moved from Coleman to Dougherty. At the beginning of his freshman year of high school, the family moved from Dougherty to Sulphur. After graduating from Sulphur High School, Marvin attended Santa Rosa Junior College in Santa Rosa, CA, where he majored in civil law enforcement.
