May 19, 1949 - July 28, 2020
It is with great sadness that the family of Mr. Anthony Francis Marshall, also lovingly known as Aviram by many, announce his passing on July 28, 2020. Anthony Marshall of Hillsborough was a man who possessed the deepest love and concern for his family and friends. Anthony was the epitome of sincerity, kindness and pure-heartedness.
He will be so deeply missed for his spontaneous ability to laugh and enjoy the moment, for the outpouring of his deeply penetrating poetry, for his ability to offer love and consolation to others' hearts, and for his deep devotion to his faith, but especially his family, whom he loved beyond end.
Anthony leaves behind his beloved wife, Dhiresha Marshall of Hillsborough, their daughter Jennifer Jacobs, her husband John Jacobs, and their son Tsali Jacobs of Maryland. Anthony was born on May 19, 1949 in London. His siblings and their spouses still reside in the United Kingdom. They are: a brother Patrick Marshall and his wife Sue Joyce; a sister Mary Pilling and her husband Keith Pilling, and a sister Paula Marshall.
