Martin Doyle Marshall


Martin Doyle Marshall passed away on Saturday, July 31, in his home surrounded by his loved ones, as he wished. He was a blessing when he was born Feb. 4, 1949, to parents James Doyle Marshall and Miriam Alma Marshall in Texas where he claimed the air smells the best.

He was a devoted husband to his wife, Christina Marshall; an extraordinary father to his children, James Marshall and Jessica Uran along with his son-in-law, Tyler Uran; grandfather to Ellie Uran; big brother to Ralph Marshall and sister-in-law Lily Marshall. He is also survived by sister and brothers-in-law: Ken and Peggy Decaria, Bruce and Cindy Vaughn, Rebecca Copeland and Larry Gadd.

He is preceded in death by his sister, Melinda Marshall; and parents named above. Martin was a very smart man who had a very curious mind and was an all-around enthusiast about many things including: all things with a motor, racing, computers, politics and a good debate! Martin’s philosophy of life was to think kindly of the past and live fully in the now.

A celebration of his life will be held Thursday, Aug. 5, at 6 p.m. at the Crandall Funeral Home. All are welcome to attend and share any memories of Martin. Plans are to have a headstone marker placed at the Evanston cemetery and at the Bethlehem Family Cemetery in the Snap community outside of Carthage, Texas, where his home will always be.
