Marshall served in the National Guard. He loved his family; they were number one to him and his dogs T.J. and Leo. Marshall enjoyed his farm, hunting, fighting beavers, and anything to do with the outdoors. He was the most giving person you ever met and always had a smile on his face.

Marshall is survived by his children, Mike (Shannon) Canary and Brian Canary; five grandchildren, Chase, Savana, Logan, David, and Addyson; one great-grandchild, Kylo; and his siblings, James Earl Canary, Stanley Glenn (Misty) Canary, Connie Jean Simpson, Diane Lynn Bowlds (Jeff), and Peggy Jo (Scott) Dossett.
