Marvin “Greasy” Gandee Obituary – Cause of Death: Herbert Hoover Football mourns the death of beloved member & stalwart, Greasy Gandee.
It is hard to explain what Greasy meant to not only the Herbert Hoover Athletic Department, but the entire Elk River Community.
Greasy retired in 1992 and immediately started volunteering to help maintain Herbert Hoover’s Athletic Fields. Over the next 30 years, Greasy and his crew would make sure the fields were ready for any home Hoover sporting event (football, baseball, softball, soccer, and lacrosse).
On Friday, October 14, 2022, Herbert Hoover Football announced the passing of Marvin “Greasy” Gandee via a statement shared on Facebook.
“We are saddened to hear about the passing of a true pillar of our program, Greasy Gandee. His impact reaches far beyond the Elk River community. We are forever grateful for the many many years we were blessed to have Greasy in our lives and a part of our school, community and athletic programs. We ask that you keep the Gandee family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.”
At football games, he could be seen along the sidelines, both home and away, helping with the equipment and water.
Words fall short of expressing our grief for your loss, as we mourn with family and friends for this great loss. Please accept our condolences and may our prayers help comfort you. Please receive our heartfelt condolences.
Feel free to drop condolences messages and prayers for the family and friends of the deceased as it will go a very long way at this difficult time of theirs.
