Marvin Zindler

Marvin Zindler was one of the first memories I have of moving to Houston. That and the ride home from the airport with So and Face. I DO remember that! Anyway, when I first saw him on Eyewitness News my mouth literally fell open. I thought it was a joke but I soon learned that people took him very seriously. I must admit, that was a little frightening. I thought of him today, for some odd reason and googled his name and found out that he had passed away. He was an ugly guy, I mean just look! but he did help a lot of people during his time on Earth.

So, RIP Marvin, and I hope you don't find any roaches up there! If you do I think you had better leave them alone!

My balky dial-up service will not let me watch the clip, so I'll take your word that Marvin did good work.

That is too bad Bill because he was one of a kind!

THERE'S SLIME IN THE ICE MACHINE!!!

He was famous for mispronouncing words, especially temp-a-ture.

But he did help many people that couldn't get stuff done by themselves.

He was a good man. He gave endlessly to many charities and was a great fundraiser.
