William "Randy" Marshall, 57, went to be with his Mother, Loretta Marshall, on May 17, 2020.

Randy was an exceptional Artist, winning "Best in Show" Awards in most every Art Show he entered! Most people know him for his love of family and fishing. He fed and did all he could to help anyone in need. He truly had a Very Big Heart.

He temporarily leaves behind his father, William "Billy" Marshall, and brothers, Mark Marshall and Brandon Marshall. He loved his nephews deeply, and will be truly missed by Brandon Marshall Jr., Brian Marshall, Amber Marshall, Jonathan Marshall, and Matthew Marshall.

Randy will be dearly missed by us all and by his fellow co-workers from Ford Motor Assembly in Norfolk. He will also be missed by the employees at BAE Systems, where his artistic eye made him an exceptional Sheet Metal Mechanic!

Funeral arrangements are being handled by Woodlawn Funeral Home, 6329 E Virginia Beach Blvd., Norfolk.

Randy, a Great Friend and next door Neighbor on MapleForestDrive. He is most ingenious. (Anyone who could take a fan, remove the blade, connect a wire to it, Duct Tape the fan to a stick and weed wack the driveway) Randy named it the FANDER. Rest In Peace my Friend.

Billy & Family,

Randy was dearly loved by Billy and Loretta and his entire family. While I did know Randy well, Billy says he was a very hard worker, and stayed with a task until he completed it. Randy's expertise from working at the shipyard, enabled him to repair Loretta's cow which meant so very much to the family. He was very artistic and a man of many talents including fishing! We dearly love Billy and we send our deepest condolences on this great loss. We will be praying for your whole family in the days ahead for comfort and peace.
