June 22, 1941 - May 16, 2017
Henry John Marshall, "Marshall", passed away May 15, 2017 at his home in Palm Springs, Calif. He served in the U.S. Navy and was an elementary school teacher for nearly 30 years in Washtucna, Wash. and Portland.
Marshall's true passion was art. Recently, he was painting vibrant, impressionistic landscapes.
He created a family of friends wherever he went: his walking group (the Front Runners), his local Starbucks, and John's restaurant.
His lively sense of humor never failed him. As a good friend noted, "We could never seem to run out of conversation."
He is survived by siblings, Clyde and Ola; niece, Morgen; nephew, Gerrit; and close friends, Terry and John.
