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.
