Mr. Busby was preceded in death by his parents William Marshall Busby, Sr. and Virginia White McCullough, brothers Michael and Monte and by his second wife, Kathie T. Busby.

Mr. Busby was an Architect and Project Manager for numerous projects focused on health care, hospital, psychiatric centers and homes for the aged. His projects had him in many states-Texas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Idaho, Florida and Colorado to name a few. He also oversaw a project in Guatamala. When relaxing, his hobbies were his passion.

Many of the family photos of Marshall will show him with a fish he just caught, a fishing pole or a plane in his hands. He lived a life of working hard and playing harder. The family will greet friends on Thursday afternoon from One O’clock until the service begins at Two O’clock. Roselawn Funeral Home, 5350 NW Broad Street, Murfreesboro, Tennessee 37129, 615-893-2742.

I am so sad to hear of Marshall's passing. I am an architect and business owner - much of the credit for which I owe to Marshall. He was my supervisor at the first architect's office that I ever worked in. This was at a time when I knew nothing of the profession. Marshall took the time (and had the patience) to teach me. He taught me drafting and how to put a set of building plans together the right way! From his guidance and instruction, I was able to grow in the profession to eventually become a licensed architect. Nearly 40 years later, I still remember what he taught me. I think of him fondly and will be forever grateful to him. My sincere condolences to his family. - Linda Marzialo
