A funeral was held March 30 for Marvin Stemple, 92, formerly of Hoboken. He passed away peacefully on March 27 at his Maywood home. He was a beloved pharmacist and cherished friend of the many families who frequented Stemple’s Pharmacy, an institution in Hoboken since 1929 when his father opened the apothecary on 7th and Willow.
Marvin took over the pharmacy after his father’s passing, and lovingly cared for all his customers and patients for well over 60 years. Marvin also inspired many of his employees to pursue healthcare as a profession, and he mentored many future doctors, and pharmacists, in how to truly care for all those in need, with compassion and kindness as demonstrated by him on a daily basis.
Marvin also was a veteran who served his country proudly in two wars, WWII and the Korean War. Marvin is remembered and mourned by the love of his life Shirley, his devoted and loving wife of 64 years, and his loving family, his children, Russell, Brad and Jody; daughter-in-law Josie; and granddaughters, Ellis and May. Services arranged by Gutterman and Musicant, Hackensack.
