Kenneth Eugene (Tony) Marshall 1935 - 2020

With profound sadness we announce that Tony passed away peacefully at home on Friday July 24, 2020. Tony is deeply missed by his loving wife Holly, children Kenneth (Kim), Penny (Warren), Deirdre (Derek), eight grandchildren, two great grandchildren, siblings Patricia, Aubrey and Christopher, many nieces and nephews, and cousins around the world.

There are many lives worthy of praise and remembrance and Tony’s was one of them. Born in Karachi, educated at St. Edward’s Boy’s School in Simla, India, he emigrated to Canada at the age of 29 with his young family, paving the way for his parents and siblings to later follow. Always interested and always interesting was Tony, along with being a voracious reader with a passion for people, life and learning. (At 61 he learned to speak Spanish and earned his Honours B.A.). He took enormous pleasure in the company of his treasured family and many friends, never failing to ask them, “What are you reading?” Tony loved listening to music and had a particular passion for jazz as well as for soccer and of course - dogs. He was modest, unassuming and responded to “Thank you”, with “Think nothing of it”. A true gentleman and a scholar who leaves behind a great legacy of family and values. He will be missed immensely.

Many thanks to all the doctors, nurses and staff at UHN, TGH, PMH, The Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care, and Spectrum Health Care for their kind and compassionate care. Donations in Tony’s memory can be made to The Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care or to a charity of your choice. Online condolences to the family may be made at www.rosar-morrison.com.

Dearest Cousins,
I can't express my sorrow and at the same time tremendous pride over the passing of "Tony-O" as I fondly referred to him. Driving to Marilake Drive August 5, 1971 for starters.You mum, gracious as ever opening her home to these immigrants, your Dad making it into an adventure for us. All the things he did for us throughout the years will always be remembered. The legacy he leaves is his pioneering spirit, his joy in the simple pleasures of life and a deep respect for good scotch and good books.
All my love

Mavin and I are saddened to read of Tony’s passing. We will always remember him, walking with his dear four-legged friend, Maggie. Tony loved Maggie as much as Maggie loved sticks!! When our daughter was little, she would collect sticks and she would leave them on Tony and Holly’s doorstep. Tony was a friendly, enthusiastic, charming and very kind gentleman. His large presence will definitely be missed.

So sorrt to hear about Tony. We were friends and neighbours of Tony and Holly in Cabbagetown for many years. Whenever our paths crossed on Parliament St. we would spend ages yacking about dogs, literature, and children. We argued about whether the New york Review of Books was better than the London Review of Books.
Tony was a great raconteur, a special human being, and always a great pleasure to converse with. We shall donate to Medicins sans Frontieres on his behalf.
Our deep condolences to Holly.
Sandy and Alan
