|nadine mcnally||RE: Clifford's memorial|
Obit: MARSHALL, CLIFFORD B. 90, of Paris died Wednesday, June 2, 2004, in University Medical Center in Lubbock, after a brief illness Funeral services are scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Saturday, June 6, 2004, in First United Methodist Church with the Rev. Doug Miller officiating. Graveside services will follow at 3:30 p.m. Saturday in Laurel Land Cemetery in Dallas under the direction of Gene Roden's Sons Funeral Home. The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, June 4, at the funeral home. He was born Jan. 1, 1914, just outside San Antonio, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Dan D. Bolgiano. Clifford Marshall typified the American success story. He began his life long career in the media world working as an office boy for the Dallas Morning News. He soon met and married Margaret Salter, the eventual mother of his two sons, in Dallas in the 1930s. Working his way through the ranks of the media World he eventually moved to United press International where he spent years as a reporter, even at one time assigned to reporting an Elliot Ness. He treasured his press card signed by the famous crime fighter when he was Director of Public Safety in Cleveland, Ohio. Mr. Marshall spent several years typing away hours a day on the transmitting end of the United Press newswire service. He was "frozen" in this capacity during World War II because the United States government considered his part in disseminating the news essential to national Security. It was just a few weeks after the bombing of Pearl Harbor that his wife, Margaret, gave birth to their first son, Robert. After the war he moved into the sales end of United Press and traveled the highways and railroads selling its news service, comic strips and syndicated columns to newspapers, radio and television stations. After achieving the level of Vice president at United Press in 1951, he left the firm to help co-found Blackburn & Company which eventually became Americas premier brokerage firm for radio and television stations. In that same year he saw the birth of his second son, John. While at Blackburn he also purchased KPLT radio in Paris in 1959 and then WFIG and WWDM in Sumter, S.C. in 1969, and 1972. His crowning achievement in his career as radio station entrepreneur was the founding of WWDM's Urban radio format in 1973. WWDM went on to become one of the most successful and respected Urban radio stations in the United States. Mr. Marshall "retired" from the radio business in the 1980's but lived out his later years living his lifelong dream of being a Texas rancher. Residents at the Paris and southern Lamar county area enjoyed the wonder and beauty of his cattle ranch and pecan orchard an the Old Dallas Highway for over 20 years. He was preceded in death by his first wife, Margaret Elizabeth Salter Marshall. Survivors include his wife of nearly 20 years, Mary Strong Marshall; his two sons, Robert A. and John D. Marshall; granddaughter, Angela Pagenstecher; and his grandson, Clifford S. Marshall. Gene Roden's Sons Funeral Home Paris, Texas (903) 784-4333

O.P. Lee was my G-G-Grandfather's brother; Miles Parks Lee.
A tremendous help there, and I appreciate it greatly.
Best Regards, Jeffrey Lee - Austin
