Marshall's brother, Ricky, and I were friends in school. When I lost touch with Ricky, I became friends with Marshall. Marshall helped me at Bumper to Bumper. He always had a smile on his face. I don't remember him ever having anything negative to say about anyone. He always enjoyed a good joke. He kept me informed about his son when he was serving in Afghanistan. He will be missed. Please accept our deepest sympathies.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Bennett family.

Sorry to hear about Marshall. Marshall and I went to school at Arkansas High and I later called on Marshall when he had his parts store. I had just talked with him last week at the store. Will miss him as a friend and co-worker.
