Dayton Marshall Obituary
Aug. 30, 1926 - Nov. 19, 2017 Vacaville Dayton Fredrick Marshall, passed away peacefully on Nov. 19, in Montague, CA. He was 91 years old. Dayton was born to Fred and Viva Marshall in South Dakota on Aug. 30, 1926. After 10th grade, Dayton joined the United States Army Air Corps, which later became the United States Air Force. Dayton served as a Flight Engineer for over 30 years, and through three wars: World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. He flew in many different airplanes, and saw plenty of changes in the technology through the years. He loved his airplanes, sometimes a little too much! Dayton retired from the Air Force in 1975. In retirement, he took up horticulture and formed a love of gardening vegetables and flowers. Every Saturday, Dayton would go to a local cafe, and he and his friends would solve the world's problems over coffee. Through the years, Dayton's biggest joy was in his family and his church family. He loved spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. His love for the Lord led to valuable relationships with friends in his community. A memorial service for Dayton will be held at Orchard Baptist Church in Vacaville on Saturday, Dec. 9 at 11 a.m. Dayton will later be laid to rest beside fellow veterans at Eagle Point National Cemetery in the hills of Southern Oregon. Girdner Funeral Chapel in Yreka, is assisting the family in this difficult time. Online condolences may be made at www.girdnerfuneralchapel.com.
