Marvin Chew Obituary

MARVIN CHEW
April 1956 – April 2018
Our friend and colleague, the gentle giant, left us after a brief illness.
He’ll join those who have preceded us and are now seating at
the specifiers table in the sky.
Marvin leaves behind his wife Helen, daughter Juliana, sister Janice
and brother Lester, as well as countless friends.
Marvin was a graduate architect who studied at Cal State Los Angeles and got his degree from Cal Poly,
San Luis Obispo. He worked in Bakersfield upon graduation and then for Gin Wong in Beverly
Hills where I met him and convinced him to join me when we created Specifications, Inc. A wise
decision as he was a natural for specifications. That was more than 30 years ago. Although we
parted ways, we remained great friends and had one passion, deep sea fishing. He was an
accomplished photographer and could have worked as a professional photographer if he had chosen
to do so. We will miss him dearly.
A service will take place at 9:00 AM on 28 April, 2018, at the Old North Church at Forest Lawn
Hollywood, 6300 Forest Lawn Drive, L.A, 90060. A light snack will follow the service. All are
invited to come celebrate Marvin’s life.
