Marvin Franzen, the amicable denim-clad driver of the tractor that shuttles folks to shows at Codfish Hollow Barnstormers, is out of surgery and on the healing path after a horrible accident August 10 when his tractor flipped, breaking two arms and his pelvis.

However, medical costs are skyrocketing, and there’s been a GoFundMe set up to help with expenses.

Codfish Hollow updated his condition with a post today:

Marvin needs all the support he can get. They have currently moved him out of Iowa City Hospitals and clinics and into the ICU at Select Hospitals in Davenport. He has a lot of recovery and rehab ahead of him. Please send cards and letters to Marvin C/o Tiffany Biehl 3437 288th Ave Maquoketa, Iowa 52060. Thanks so much Codfish Hollow Community. We love you!
