Marvin Lane Nixon was born on October 19, 1953 in Woodward, Oklahoma; he was the son of Cecil Marvin and Evelyn Allene Blevins (Nixon). He grew up on the family farm south of Freedom near Alabaster Caverns. He attended Freedom Schools, graduating from Freedom High School in 1971. Marvin attended Northern Oklahoma College for the next two years, and then transferred to Oklahoma Panhandle State University on a rodeo scholarship. He worked two events while at Panhandle, tie-down roping, and bull riding and at one time he was one of the top bull riders in the collegiate ranks.

He was united in marriage to Kama Li Luddington at the XIT Rodeo in Dalhart, Texas on August 5, 1983. Marvin and Kama lived in Freedom. They were blessed with two children, Lane and AlyJea.

Throughout all his travels and experiences Marvin always returned to farming and ranching. He loved the western way of life, and was steward of the land. Marvin raised bucking bulls, he was a contractor for the PBR, often traveling down the road with top ranked bulls. He loved the wide open spaces, watching a newborn calf take its first steps, riding a young colt and teaching it the do s and do nots of life. Marvin was a cowboy, and will be remembered as such for all time.

Marvin is survived by his son, Lane Nixon; daughter, AlyJea Gerloff and husband Chance; granddaughter, Gray Gerloff all of Freedom; sisters, Carole Beckett and husband Gordon; MaeBeth Bird and husband Jim all of Woodward; nieces, Stephanie Moss; Beth Beckett; Andrea Haney; nephews, Bruce Beckett; Brian Beckett; Brent Beckett; Lynn Haney; other family and many friends.
