On December 29, 1952, Marvin Leon was born to Edgar and Cleo Summers in Wewoka, OK. He met Sandy in Hobbs, New Mexico, and married her on October 18, 1971. They were blessed with 49 years of marriage and had 3 children, 8 grandchildren, and 6 great-grandchildren. He was a blessed man who was lucky enough to find love again, after Sandy’s passing, he married Debbie Summers.
Sarge was bigger than life and never met a stranger! He spent his life in ministry to family, friends, and to his country. A retired Army NCO, he spent 21 years serving in the United States Army. After retirement, he spent 30+ years building relationships in the oil and gas business and founded Oilfield Connections International (OCI), an organization that has quickly grown into the single largest networking organization in the oil and gas business! His passion was for people and through his 40+ years of ministry in the youth boy’s organization Royal Rangers, he touched the lives of thousands of boys and men in a positive way by living the ‘Golden Rule’, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!”
In his later years, he developed a passion for politics and was running for Texas Railroad Commission. Most important to him was his love for God and family! He was a loving husband to his late wife Sandy Summers and his new bride Debbie Summers. One thing he always wanted you to remember is to “Be Somebody”.
