Commander Robert Marvel died in San Antonio, TX February 20, 1997. He was known as Commander or Der working as Assistant Huts Manager under Bruce Sloat. Hawkeye Hawkins sent the following: Der was one of a kind smoking his unfiltered Camels. He was the end of the conservative era of hut management. I was glad to work one season with Commander in charge. Many will remember his green uniform and crusher hat. How many were met by the Der at night with his six shooters strapped by his side? There was no hanky panky when the Der was on watch. Remember when he hid in the PNC fireplace to catch croo stealing rag socks? How about his Dodge Businessman’s Coupe? Memories. He was a commander in the US Navy, an avid protector of gun owners’ rights and active in NH conservative politics. He leaves his wife, T. Anne Webster Marvel.
