I knew Marshall from working with him at Berry. He was my first experience with computers. I worked in Nv and he was very patient and kind when I called for help. Over the years he became a friend. He always spoke so softly and with complete kindness and respect to and about everyone. He will be missed by all. See you one day my friend.

My heart is broken. Marshall was my very first friend when I started my life. Our employee card numbers were one number off of each other. He hired on a few months before me, and talked Jim K into taking a chance on this young girl who knew nothing about anything. He taught me about the Fall Festival and Turonis. When there were just four of us in IT, he and Art would take Mindy and me to lunch at Hacienda. One day after turning the computer on in the morning, I was asleep on my desk (had been working two jobs at the time). He let me sleep. When I realized he was already there I apologized, and in typical Marshall fashion, he said 'I figured you needed the sleep.' When I got divorced and planned to drive to Texas to see family, he pulled together cash to buy me a plane ticket. He loved Berry, but he loved people more. He loved his family the most. He was gracious, kind and silly. He listened to your problems and gave wise advice. Sue and Laura - Thank you for sharing him with the rest of us. May God grant you peace during this difficult time, and sweet memories of him as you journey forward. Marshall will be sorely missed.

So sorry for the untimely passing of a very good man. I worked with Marshall at Berry. He was always a hard worker and a gentleman. He was reliable and calm even under very stressful circumstances. God bless the family of Marshall and God bless his giving soul.

Deepest sympathy for all Marshall's family. Marshall was a great leader for us at Berry. He was missed when he retired and he is going to be missed even more until we see him again. Thoughts and prayers to all. Marshall will forever be in our minds and hearts!

So Sorry to hear of Marshall’s Passing! He was such a pleasant person to work with at Berry Plastics! My Condolences and Prayers to the Family.

We were so sorry to hear of Marshall's death. Brad Pate, his fishing buddy of many years emailed me to advise. Marshall had come to our cabin on Lake of the Woods many times for fishing and he will be missed.

I would describe him as - quiet, capable and a lover of nature. I know he loved coming here and spending time with his friends. I recall he couldn't make it the one year because he was expecting his first grandchild and that was a big deal of course for him!

We are so sorry for your loss.

Peggy (Margaret) and Garry Whitta
