After Marshall’s return to New Mexico, he had several jobs in the public eye, where he met and made many friends. In 2004, he retired and began a life he thoroughly enjoyed as a retiree.

Marshall is loved by his family and friends for his huge heart and generous spirit. He was one of the most giving of men to family and friends. Marshall attended Church On The Move for several years. Although Marshall didn’t speak of it often, he was raised in the Church by Godly parents, and he believed in our Lord Jesus Christ. His allegiance to Christ was reaffirmed before his death as he encouraged others to accept salvation in Christ before death claimed their souls.

It is with great sadness as we see our brother, Marshall, go to his home with Christ and all those family members who have gone before him. But it is with great joy and peace as we know we shall see him again.

Marshall’s tribute was lovingly written in his honor by his family.
