Marshalll and I go back to high school then 4 years of chemistry at Ouachita. We were room mates our freshman year. He was upright and a good room mate. And friend. He will always be on my memory. My prayers are with the family. In this time of sorrow.

Marshall and I would always discuss Arkansas Razorback football, basketball or baseball every Sunday before church. As a deacon, he was an excellent example and leader for the younger men of our church. He was in the choir and would often sing a solo. He had a wonderful baritone voice. Till we meet again my friend.

We extend our condolences to Sue, Renee and their families. We live in California, and we have not visited with Marshall and Sue for many years. We have continued to keep in touch at Christmas, and we have marveled at Marshall's perseverance to lead his life, and to Sue's dedication to Marshall.
