He was preceded in death by his parents, Nat and Belle Conney; his wife, Mildred "Babe" Golper Conney; and his sister, Joyce Conney Flaherty. Marv grew up in Ripon, WI and dropped out of high school to serve in the US Navy (1945-1946). He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in Economics in 1950. He was employed by Badger Products of Neenah, WI (1950-1952) and was the owner of Conney Safety Products Company of Madison (1952-1998).

His true feelings for her were best expressed in Irving Berlin's "How Deep is the Ocean": "How far would I travel to be where you are? How far is the journey from here to a star?" Private burial held in Milwaukee. Memorial Service Sunday, April 11 organized through Temple Beth El, Madison. In lieu of flowers, donations should be made to Temple Beth El, Madison or a charity of your choice.
