The old Wolf Pecan Lands was his outdoor classroom where he taught himself to track, hunt and avoid game wardens.

He married Jeanie McDonald on November 7, 1980 in Stephenville. He was a member of the Green’s Creek Methodist Church, Erath County Republican Party, and lived most of his life in Stephenville. He was an avid fan of the Stephenville Yellowjackets until injuries prevented access to the old Memorial Stadium. He also loved the Lingleville Cardinal teams. Lamarvin was a welder and worked for Riggs Machine and Welding for twenty years.
