    We have known Marshall for many years. We attended the same Church, went on many fun trips together, worked on projects together at PHCC, and even got together when we were in Florida. Marshall always had a funny story to tell, and always kept us laughing. Our children and Grandchildren knew and loved him. We will miss him being among us.

    My condolences to Marshalls family and friends, I hadn't seen Marshall in years but I worked with him at Honeywell and we hunted together in Chesterfield, a real genuine man. I pray that his family and friends will find peace and comfort in the days to come.
