Marshall retired from Coffing Hoists with 28 years of dedicated service as a Forklift Operator.  He had a love for motorcycles and was a member of the Brothers of Unity Motorcycle Club for many years.  Marshall will also be remembered for his passion for cars and trucks.  There was always a “fleet” of vehicles in his yard.

    God strengthens us by giving us the "power beyond what is normal" to make it through each passing day. Psalm 46:1 says: "God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! ((Isaiah 26:4; Isaiah 12:2)
