William Winfred Marshall
October 6, 1938 – April 9, 2020
William “Bill” W. Marshall passed away on Thursday, April 9, 2020, after a long battle with lung disease. He was 81.
Born in Minneapolis, MN, Bill played football for Washburn High School and was a semi-pro Hockey player. At the encouragement of his father, Lyndon Earl “Frank” Marshall, Bill became a Civil Engineer. His profession took him around the world – from Greenland to Germany, Canada, Alaska, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. He retired from the City of North Las Vegas, NV in 2005.
Mr. Marshall spent his retirement enjoying his favorite hobbies. Fishing with his son in Montana, boating on Lake Mead, alligator hunting with his son-in-law in Louisiana, watching football and participating in various bowling leagues in Las Vegas. He recently relocated to Louisiana to be closer to family.
Bill is survived by his brother, Pat Frank Marshall and his wife, Antoinette “Toni” Marshall; former spouse Sue McCormick-Hoagberg; children Thomas Marshall and partner Mary Elizabeth, John Marshall, and Ramona Marshall Gautreaux and husband Jason Gautreaux; nephews James Walton and Pat Mike Walton; niece Kathleen Walton Rush and husband Edward Rush; grandchildren Chase Marshall, Dylan Sperry, Jesse Lloyd, Cassandra Marshall Tessa Marshall, Daniel Marshall and Abigale Marshall; and several great nieces and nephews.
Bill is preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Bonnabel Marshall and sister Delia Pietras. Family members will have a private ceremony to scatter his remains.
The family would like to thank Dr. DeeDee Luke and her staff at Family Care of Acadiana, the staff at Garden View Assisted Living, Hospice of Acadiana, Senior Helpers, especially Ms. Rose - and the amazing doctors and nurses at Lafayette General Hospital. Your kindness and care will forever be appreciated.
