FRAMINGHAM – Marvin Sumner Cohen beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and loyal friend entered into rest on April 14, 2021, at the age of 82.

Marv was born in Framingham, on March 19,1939.

He was the son of the late Esther (Goldshied) Cohen and Joseph Cohen.

After leaving Framingham, he moved to Cape Cod and then to Delray Beach, Florida.

He was a 1956 graduate of Framingham High School and as a young adult met the love of his life, Phyllis, and married in 1963. They recently celebrated their 57th Anniversary.

Marv pursued his education at Wentworth College and Northeastern University.  Electronics was always his love, passion and business. He owned MTS Electronics for over 40 years. He was a MA Certified Electronics Instructor and helped many young people to get into the electronics field. Marv’s passion and forward thinking in the electronics business resulted in innovative problem solving for the industry and the invention of a novel circuit board chip removal technique used worldwide.

In 1994, he was issued a U.S Patent and Trademark, which was the start of Chip Quik, Inc. Marv sold his company in 2014. He remained active as a consultant with key accounts and was involved in ongoing business development efforts.    

He loved spending quality time with his family and they treasured their time with him. He found joy in sailing, bike riding, cooking, traveling and the friends he met through each area of interest. He dedicated his business savvy and offered daily assistance to neighbors as president of his condo association in Florida. Marv had a zest for living and a perpetual smile. He had reunited in Florida with many of his boyhood friends and created many new friendships in retirement. Marv is loved by so many and is already missed more than words can express. His sweet smile and his many acts of kindness will live on in our hearts.

Marv is survived by his wife, Phyllis (Rubin), his children Risa & Larry Kahn of Marblehead and Jana Korn of Easton. He has four grandchildren, Justin and Elyse Korn, Benjamin and Arielle Kahn. He leaves his sisters, Eileen Avers and Pauline Engel, brother-in-law, Mel (and Judi) Rubin and sister-in-law, Donna (and Judge Spencer) Kagan.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to The Esther & Joseph Cohen Fund at Temple Beth Sholom, 50 Pamela Road, Framingham, MA 01701 or to a cancer research organization of your choice.
