Marvin (Bud) Sypolt, 91, of Valley Point, went to his eternal home to be with the Lord on August 6, 2018. Bud was born in a small community known as Beech Run, on June 20, 1927, to the late Gratt and Ida Sypolt.
In Bud’s early years, while helping on the family farm, he worked in the mines and drove truck. He found his true calling when he started in the construction industry where his career spanned the next 50 plus years with many homes being built throughout Preston and Monongahela County, and the construction of the family Medical Clinic in Bruceton Mills. He was also involved with the reposition of the Mt. Moriah Church project located in Valley Point.
With Bud being a devoted Christian and a faithful member of the Mt. Moriah Methodist Church, he touched many lives through the power of prayer and during his construction career where a hand shake was good enough. Everyone came to know Marvin as “Bud”.
Bud was preceded in death by his two sisters, Patty Feather and Jean Forman; along with one brother, Wilmer Sypolt.
Bud is survived by his wife, Virginia Harned Sypolt; daughter, Kay Jenkins and husband Bob; a son Mark Sypolt and wife Carmel; three grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; brother, Melvin and wife Peggy; and four sisters, Maxine Livengood, Mary Alice Benson, Annabelle Lawson, and husband Bob, Sharon Stiles and husband Dewey.
Bud will be deeply missed here on this earth, but we are sure his friends and family in Heaven are having a joyous reunion.
Family will receive friends at the Mt. Moriah United Methodist Church from 2 -4 and 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, August 9, and from 10 – 11 a.m. on Friday, August 10, with the service to follow with Pastors Sonny McNear & Mark Harris officiating. Burial will follow at the Mt. Moriah Cemetery.
The Sypolt family would like to thank the staff at Pine Ridge, and the Mon Health Medical Center for the professional and loving care that was given to Bud during the time he was at their facilities.
