MORRISVILLE-William H. Marshall, 66, of Morrisville, passed away on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at the Crouse Community Center.
Born in Oneida, NY to Robert V.L. Marshall and Beulah Reed, he lived most of his life in Morrisville. Bill was a graduate of Stockbridge Valley Schools, Class of 1969.
William “Bill” was a hardworking man that enjoyed working in the outdoors. He worked as a driver for Mid-State Redi-Mix from 1986-1999. Shortly after retirement, Bill began his own lawn maintenance business, Marshall Lawn & Snow. In his spare time, he could be found maintaining his yard to pristine condition, on his “cubby” or “Ferris.” Bill enjoyed gardening and was an avid lover of history, particularly the Civil War. He also loved constructing things, such as his log-cabin which he built with his late father, Robert V.L. Marshall and his brothers.
Above all things, Bill was a devoted father whose love was faithful and true. He was very proud of his two children, Dr. Joyce Marshall-Rickenbrode and her husband Richard, of California, and William C. Marshall and his wife Ermille, of Hawaii.
He is survived by his mother, Beulah Reed, of Oneida; his former wife and close friend Deborah (Carinci) Socha of Oneida; his three brothers, Robert Marshall and his wife Peggy of Lenoir, NC; Fred Marshall and his wife Nellie, of Earlville; Mark Marshall of Munnsville; and his two sisters Beth O’Herien and her husband Mike, of Oneida, Debbie Marshall of Oneida;  his three grandchildren whom are his most cherished blessings, Ethan, Ella, and Erin “Liam” Marshall; his special friends, who were also his caretakers, Wayne and Sandy Lust of Durhamville; his longtime companion, his dog, Tanner; as well as many loving family members and friends. He was predeceased by his sister, Rose Schmidtka.
Our beloved father wanted to raise awareness for the rare disease, Scleroderma. In honor of his heroic and lengthy battle with Scleroderma, Memorial donations may be made, in Bill’s honor, to the Scleroderma Foundation at www.sclerodermafoundation.org.
Services will be held at a date and time to be announced. Arrangements are under the direction of the Campbell-Dean Funeral Home, Inc., Oneida.

Bill started out as a patient of mine, but he and his family became friend/family to me. I will always remember Bill/Tanner with fond memories. Prayers for the family who are left behind. Bill I know is with God.
