Marvin McQuitty

The drumming community lost a beloved friend on September 11 with the passing away of Marvin McQuitty Jr. According to he battled a severe illness.

My memories of Marvin’s playing were mostly from the incredible Fred Hammond days (Pages of Life 1 & 2) but I also had the chance to here him fill in with Israel & New Breed after Chris Coleman accepted another opportunity.

After the show I had the opportunity of chatting with Marvin and he certainly was a humble, God-fearing man.

    I am sorry to hear about Marvin’s passing. He was a phenomenal worship drummer and a great role model for all of us. He was a blessing to everyone he came into contact with and a blessing for each congregation he played for. Now he’s in Heaven playing drums with the Angels. He will be missed. I pray for strength and peace for his family today.
    R.I.P. Marvin
