Marvin "Big Iron" Denny Has Gone Home...

Marvin passed away this afternoon.

We all lost a great C/L pioneer, gentleman, and avid C/L proponent.

He will be missed by many.

He put on a very game, hard fight against the cancer that finally took him. A fine gentleman, and a good friend. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to his widow.

My son and I raced Marvin in Foxberg at Brodak's a few times. Marvin was very helpful in assisting me in needed parts many times. He had a huge heart and would help anybody. I truly enjoyed conversation with him. A very sad day indeed. Ken

One of the great gentlemen of control-line. A big loss for the hobby. He certainly knew how to coax the last bit of performance out of a Fox 35 and came up with several modifications adopted by Fox Mfg.

Very fine man. I was able to get a nice new cromed piston and liner for my Fox MK4 combat Special. Not the junk Fox sold. This engine now has special meaning to me.
Lost a lot of old friends last few years. Sal Tabi/ Tom Lay/ Marvin Denny plus couple of locals.

Very sad to hear the news.
Marvin had been very kind to with me with help and parts for Fox 35's and other control line ventures of mine.
A true gentleman.
My condolences to his family and friends.

Marvin helped many with assorted parts for a long time. I got a real fine chromed piston and liner for my Fox MK4 Combat engine. Awesome work horse for AMA fast combat. Sadly lost another fine gent UC world.
