PERRY - SFC Louis C. Marshall, US Army (Ret), affectionately known as "Bud", 76, passed away on Sunday, November 7, 2010.
Funeral Services will be held at 11:00 A.M. on Wednesday, November 10, 2010. Interment with full military honors will be in Andersonville National Cemetery immediately following the service. Mr. Robert Jones will officiate.
Mr. Marshall was born in Oyster, Virginia, to the late Louis and Anna Parker Marshall. He joined the Marines at the young age of 19, where he proudly served his country for several years. He loved baseball and was an excellent baseball player in the Marines. In fact, his favorite team, the Detroit Tigers, were interested in him being on their team. Soon after he returned from the Marines, though, he enlisted in the US Army, where he spent over 22 years. Retiring as a Sargent First Class, Mr. Marshall was an ammunition inspector who served in Viet Nam. Later in life, he worked for and retired from Yellow Freight Trucking Company. He was a Christian man who was always happy and friendly and "would give you the shirt off his back" if you needed it. Mr. Marshall, a loving husband and father, was a very giving and loving man and a fantastic provider for his family. He was a talented man who played guitar in a country music band. It is certain that he and his loving wife of 48 years are reunited and dancing in the streets of gold. He was preceded in death by his wife, Gertrud Gerhard Marshall; brother, Douglas; and 2 sisters, Beatrice and Rachel.
Left to cherish the wonderful memories of "Bud" are his children, Brenda Conklin (David) of Perry, and John Marshall and Marcus C. Marshall (Valerie), both of Colorado Springs, CO; siblings, Wesley Marshall, George Marshall, Violet Greene, Joan Reil, and Donna Smith; 7 grandchildren; and a host of nieces and nephews.
