Marvin Lee Baugh

Marvin Lee Baugh, 89, of Lubbock, passed peacefully into the arms of our Lord on July 3, 2024.

Marvin was born June 23, 1935 in Lebanon, Indiana to Elmer Baugh and Esta Mae (Green) Baugh. He attended high school in Zionsville, Indiana where he graduated in May 1953.

Marvin enlisted in the United States Air Force in January 1954 where he earned the ranking of Master Sergeant, retiring in February of 1974. His time in the Air Force took him across the world, being stationed in Japan, Korea, Turkey, Belgium and France. There began his love for travel.

Marvin married the love of his life, Beverly Jo Smith, on November 29, 1958. Marvin and Beverly were blessed with two daughters, Teresa and Annette. Together they built a beautiful life full of adventure, traveling all over the United States and the world together. His favorite travel memories, were the countless cruises him and Beverly took. He enjoyed seeing the world with his world by his side.

After his retirement from the Air Force, Marvin began his career at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales where he worked in the business office until his retirement in the early 90s. In their time in Portales, Marvin and Beverly were active members of the First United Methodist Church where Beverly played hand bells and Marvin was known as the hand bell technician. He loved to work with his hands and could take a part and put back together anything. Most times, even better than it was before. His favorite things to tinker with were his model planes and music boxes.

In November of 2013, Marvin and Beverly left their home of 43 years in Portales and moved to Levelland, Texas to be closer to family. They then moved to Carillon in the summer of 2018. Here is where Marvin was known as the resident joker, avid prankster and the “man with the crazy hats.” Marvin enjoyed getting to know and becoming close with the many residents on his floor as well as throughout the buildings. He never knew a stranger and always made friends wherever he went.

After Beverly was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and they were introduced to support groups, Marvin was passionate about the Southwest Parkinson’s Society, and enjoyed attending various group meetings and events in support of those with Parkinson’s. His love for “his angel” knew no bounds, and he was always seeking new ways to love and support her through her illness. He was a true testament to what a husband should be, in sickness and in health.

Marvin was preceded in death by his parents, Elmer and Esta Mae, his sister, Marlene Clements, and his daughter, Annette Baugh Gregg. Those left to cherish is memory are his wife, Beverly of almost 66 years. His daughter Teresa Jones (Ted) of Katy, Texas, son-in-Law Todd Gregg of Levelland, six grandchildren, Brandon Jones (Cassidy) of Katy, Nathan Jones of Utah, Garrett Clair (Taylor) of Shallowater, Andrew Jones and Christina Jones both of Utah, and Aaron Gregg (Tim) of Little Elm, Texas. And 2 great grandchildren, Gunner and Deklyn Clair of Shallowater.
