Marshall was employed by the Affinity Mines of Pocahontas Coal Company as a coal miner, operating a continuous miner for 16 years. At his workplace he was known as the “Mohawk Miner.” He was of the primitive Baptist faith, and enjoyed spending time with his children, was an avid hunter and fisherman, and loved boating, and riding his “Harley.”

Marshall was a dedicated father, and a loyal friend to many people.

Three nieces, Brittini Orcutt and her husband Matt of Shady Spring, Alexis May, and Madison May both of Speedway. A great-nephew Brycen Orcutt of Shady Spring. Many aunts, uncles, and cousins are also surviving.
