My heart is breaking for you his family. I just received my Christmas card back "return to sender" and found this obituary when I searched for an address. Marshall was one of the dearest men I've known and an incredible mentor and friend. He is the reason the business I now own started back in 1978 because of his friendship with Dick Sample. Every conversation with him was such a pleasure - lots of laughs and wisdom received from him. Marshall will be remembered dearly and missed. Prayers to the family.

Richard and I are saddened to hear of Marshall's passing. We enjoyed many a lovely weekend at Lake Lanier with him and Teresa. We always enjoyed his humorous stories about his work and his funny stories of his parents, telling us about how the Sheriff in Washington Ga called to say they have his father at the station for driving the wrong way, and many other tales. The chili dinners at their home in Roswell were so enjoyable with stories of all their travels. And Teresa's fun idea of Thanksgiving dinner at the Piccadilly Cafeteria. We remember meeting him and Teresa, just by chance, at a “fly-in” for model planes in Cumming. Although we were not in touch theses last years, we will miss his lively company. Teresa, we hope you will find comfort in the knowledge that Marshall was a real “one of a kind”.

To Marshall's family and his many friends, I would like to extend my sincere condolences on his passing. He was a true professional and a true gentleman. He was a good friend and fellow employee at USAU/USAIG. His presence in this world made it a better place - Rest In Peace, Marshall, you will be missed and never forgotten.

On behalf of the Center for Movement Challenges family, our heart is saddened at the loss of a dear friend and kind and wonderful man. Marshall fought hard alongside us against Parkinson's. During covid he was always the first friendly face to sign on zoom and greet and encourage each and everyone, and once we resumed onsite always the first to come to class. Our prayers for Theresa and the family. Marshall will live in our hearts forever.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I was so sorry to hear of Marshall’s passing and send along my most sincere sympathies to his family. I first met Marshall as a young AMSI investigator in 1978 representing one of our clients at an accident he was adjusting for USAIG. That was the beginning of a 31 year professional relationship and friendship. My respect and admiration of Marshal extended in so many ways, beyond his absolute professional approach to his work, he was always a true gentleman in every sense of that word both on and off the field. He was a central part of my decision to ultimately transfer to the patent company, with the thought that, if people like Marshall work there, that would be a good place to work. 38 years later, Marshall’s personality, example, and leadership had been continuously confirmed, and because of people like him, it was. Again, my condolences for the passing of a wonderful man, one I am privileged to call friend.
Don Campion left a message on October 10, 2023:
Marshall was a great insurance adjuster but much more, a special person. As one of his customers for many years we interacted often. We will miss Marshall and pray for a wonderful peace within his family knowing that he is with his creator.

My condolences to all the members of Marshall's family as I got to hear about and meet many of you during my 15 years working with him at USAIG. My favorite memories would have to be lunches we all shared during those years. One of his favorites was going to PDK Airport to watch landings and departures while having lunch and also having healthy lunches at any cafeteria where he could top off lunch with one of his favorites - pecan pie. I'm sure he will be missed by all of you.
