Marshall was predeceased by his parents; his brother, Myron Dunn; sister, Susan Dunn and half-sister Janice Curtis.
Marshall attended schools in Bowdoinham and graduated from Richmond High School as salutatorian in 1965. He loved and excelled in sports, playing basketball and baseball. He attended the University of Maine at Orono before joining the United States Army in 1967 where he served his country honorably for three years at White Sands Missile Base in New Mexico. He worked for the State of Maine on the stripping crew. Marshall then worked as a structural fitter for 34 years at Bath Iron Works, retiring in 2013.
Marshall was a simple man and had an immense knowledge of facts including the family history and would sit for hours and talk with those close to him. In his younger years he enjoyed hunting, fishing, trapping and bee keeping. He also enjoyed gardening, growing corn and harvesting pumpkins for his family to enjoy. He was an avid Richmond fan attending all sporting events and would travel near and far (slowly) to watch a game. He loved the NY Yankees even though a lot of his family and friends were Red Sox fans. He was a lifetime member of the American Legion, Post 132, Richmond, ME
