Marvin Simon Bezdek passed away on Saturday, September 8, 2018, at the age of 75. He was a longtime resident of Baton Rouge and New Roads, Louisiana. Marvin graduated from St. Joseph's Prep Seminary in Edgerton, Wisconsin, and then from Louisiana State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Technology. He is most recently retired from Wells Fargo Advisors, where he worked as a Certified Financial Planner. Previously, he retired from South Central Bell after working there for 20 years. He served in the United States Air Force and attained the rank of Captain. Marvin was a diehard LSU fan and an avid golfer and fisherman. He was an amateur chef; his specialties were gumbo, fried fish and jambalaya. He took great pleasure in cooking for many. He was very proud of his Czech heritage and loved polka music. But his greatest love and joy was spending time with his family. The role he took most seriously, and that he was most proud of, was that of being a grandfather to his four beloved grandchildren. He also dearly loved his many nieces and nephews. Marvin is survived by his devoted wife of 53 years, Toni Osborne Bezdek; daughters, Terri Bezdek Loughlin and husband, Kearney, and Perri Bezdek Prellop and husband, Joel; grandchildren, Sidney Louis Soniat du Fossat Loughlin, Maisy Lee Prellop, Camille Lee Soniat du Fossat Loughlin and Max Alfred Prellop; brothers, James Bezdek and wife Barbara, and Dennis Bezdek; sister, Janet Bezdek Walker; nephews, Bil, Greg, John, Jimmy, Todd Bezdek, Scott, and Todd Beatty; nieces, Kathleen, Tami, Kelly, Toni, Shari, Michele, Andi and Candace; and numerous other family members. Marvin is preceded in death by his parents, Willie and Adele Bezdek; brother, Bill Bezdek; and nephew, Jeffrey Bezdek. The Bezdek family would like to thank Dr. Oliver Sartor and his staff. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Prostate Cancer Research Fund at Tulane University.
