Marshall was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and uncle. He loved to spend time with his family, enjoyed gardening, creating stained glass and fishing. He was a dedicated fan of any sport in which his grandchildren competed and always KU basketball. Marshall’s life was one of faithfulness, generosity and service to others. He was mission-minded.
