I got to know Marshall after moving to Florida in 1985. I fondly remember all of the conversations we had about the Berksons family history, something we both took a keen interest in. He was always jovial, engaging and hospitable. We also enjoyed talking about sports, his experiences during the war, and politics. He always took an interest in my sons, and grandchildren. He led a productive and accomplished life, and his memory should serve as an inspiration to the entire family. He will...

No one can prepare you for a loss; it comes like a swift wind. However, take comfort in knowing God is with you and your family lean on him in your time of need. Please accept my most heartfelt condolences.

He was a terrific person and businessman. He served his country and this community with honor and integrity. He always knew the right thing to say and was warmly liked even by those who didnt always agree with his views. He was an old school gentleman and will be sorely missed.

I worked for the Berkson family for many years. Mr. and Mrs. Berkson were very kind and respectful to me and so were their children Ellen, Robert and Lory. Even though I no longer worked for the family I was still in contact with them. My annual call to Mr. Berkson on his birthday was a joy to him. He would say "Joice you never forget my birthday" with a boisterous laugh. Rest in peace Mr. B.

Marshall and Lyla were close friends with my parents Zebulon J Brodie and Beatrice Brodie ...Ellen and I are best friends....we spent so much time together enjoying each others company. I remember spending time at the Berkson's house with Ellen, her siblings Bobby and Lori ,her Mother Lyla always so loving and Marshall playing the drums having fun...we had wonderful times together.Marshall loved his family and lived an exceptional life!

Marshall was a very special person. I knew him since I was buddies with Lori and the family. He was always there for all. I remember people always calling for him for advise and everything. Mr. Marshall Berkson was a very important person. He will be missed. He always had a smile.. My buddy Lori used to tell me my dad is amazing and very smart. I used to say to Lori you are so much like your dad.. We should only hear good

I remember Mr. And Mrs. Berkson well, having grown up on Hibiscus Island. My parents socialized with them ...they were always warm and welcoming. My condolences to Ellen, Lori, Robert and the grandchildren.
