Obituary Condolences


On January 17, 2019, Kenny Lee Marshall, 65, died peacefully at his home in Union Washington. He lived in Humboldt County California and Mason County Washingon. He worked falling timber, commercial painting and crabbing, as a carpenter but he was always a musician. He played guitar, wrote songs and sang so sweetly. He played dozens of weddings, parties and venues from the Blessing of the Fleet, where they still sing The Call of the Sea, to the 1993 Nam Jam in Tucson where he performed for 12,000 people. A stroke took his music for over ten years but acupuncture restored him, he played again. Lung cancer was diagnosed in October 2017. He wanted to know his adult grandchildren, so he asked Dianne to team with him, for "the journey". Positive energy only, because laughter heals, we laughed. He was very happy living near his brother Kieth Visser, wife Karen and their family, next door good friend Allen Pierce and his partner Bev. Friend Dale Tahja his wife Sharon and their entire family will miss him, as will countless others. He loved his little brother and sister, Mike and Connie Visser, from Arizona. He is survived by his son Joshua and his wife Lisa Marshall. Their children gave him a new reason to live: granddaughter Rosie and her little brother Hendrix James. Also survived by his son Jacob Bond Marshall, his son Leon Sebastion, his wife Dianne and his dog, Ruby. Countless people in California miss him; he loved: Craig and Kim Bressler and Bo, from McKinleyville, and from Dows Praire: Gary Noar, Jerry and Heidi Aldoradi, and the Homan family: John, Katrine, Jackson, Lucas, Wyatt and Erica. Music in Arcata with Bob Ebenstein was cherished, also with Karen Dumont. From Trinidad, Kevin Flannery, Tet and Mike Ruiz, the Quinns, Matt, the Baltirera's, Bertha Herd ...
