HAMILTON —Hamilton resident and World War II veteran Marvin Cecil Rye passed away last week on Tuesday, Jan. 3, at the age of 98.
Rye, who was born in Detroit on Oct. 30, 1924, was one of the 13 children born to John and Millie Rye.
“It was wonderful,” Rye said about growing up with 12 brothers and sisters during an interview with the Journal Record in 2021. “We disagreed some, but we got along.”
