Not sure what to say?

Robb and I shared eleventh grade students at Kennedy High for a time. In the process, we shared our love of books, history, and politics. He inspired not only students but colleagues like myself to read history from real sources as well as texts. I'm glad he was able to travel and trek, as he wanted.

I met Robb many years ago while on Drummond Island and will never foget his sparkling smile and eyes and inspirational positive attitude. My sincere sympathy to his wonderful wife and person Mary and may God bless the whole family with peace in their hearts.

Robb was an amazing man and a wonderful instructor, his students loved him. So enjoyed his great sense of humor, and insight about life. You will be missed by so many.

I was never a student in Mr. Marshall's classes, however, I DO remember seeing him around campus and always with a smile. Those who were fortunate to get to know him better than I will surely miss him. May he R.I.P.

To all of his former students he will be greatly missed. He was the best!

I really enjoyed Mr. Marshall's history class at Kennedy. I recall reading my first fun history novels there from his library of books he let us check out. My thoughts go out to his family and friends.

I can still picture him walking around Kennedy with books in hand and a smile on his face. My deepest condolences to your entire family.

Mr. Marshall was a great inspiration to me. I learned how far passion can take students into a subject....We enjoyed him as a teacher and as a person. I was so happy to read that he was active and happy for so many years. A good man and a good life.
