To the family I would like to say. What a man he was. We had many conversations over the years about hunting when working at the City Garage. He would always stop and share a story or two that would make your day go by faster. Thought and prayers to the family.

My prayers are with you during this difficult time. I had the privilege of playing racquetball with Marshall many many years ago. He was a great guy and I'm so glad our paths crossed. Rest in peace.
