Marvin Hines was a legend, as a teacher and as an individual. His quick wit, knowledge and integrity, timeless. Our three daughters learned not only about math in his classes, but also about life. He knew how to reach his students with wit and understanding. Teaching with him was also an experience to remember. His view of the world kept faculty meetings lively, and conversations in the faculty lounge memorable. Bless you Marvin and Peace to the family.

It’s with a Heavy heart and with a deep sadness to hear of this news. Mr. Hines was the best math teacher I ever had. He was a great educator in general. The way he would take time to help his students grasp the material being taught was exceptional. I had the pleasure of having Mr.Hines as our senior rep and will always remember his jokes and unique laugh. He had a way to brighten up a situation or day with his humor and wit. He sincerely will be missed and and remembered for all the life’s he touched. He took time to be there for me when I was going through a lot during my senior year and for that I will forever be thankful. I send my deepest condolences to the family and friends.

I don't have any memories to share other than he was married to my cousin. Leo and I(Eileen) used to have hamburgers made by his parents here in Hoxie. Their place was called the Tumble Inn. They were very good. I am so sorry to hear about Marvin. Any time a loved one departs this world, it makes a lot of us very sad. Marty, I think about your family some time now since there has been people passing (dying) Tell your mom and all hello and my sincere best wishes for your family. Take care, Eileen (Dicks) Sample and family.

I cannot fully put into words how grateful I am to have had the opportunity to attend Mr. Hines’ math class for four years at Kensington High School. Yes, Mr. Hines taught math, but he was so much more than a math teacher. His jovial spirit, quirky jokes, and endless antics in class comprise some of my fondest memories of high school. Mr. Hines cared, deeply. He understood, and demonstrated daily, the power of levity; this is a life lesson I learned from him and have carried with me. My heart hurt when I learned of his passing. I hope warm memories can bring some comfort during this time of grief. My deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy to those celebrating his life and memory.
-With Love,
Caley Cole-Robinson
