B.G. was born on September 10, 1955 in Guilford County to the late Barney, Sr. and Mary Burchett Marshall. B.G. was a graduate of Northwest Guilford High School.

Marshall (Kempy) of Colfax; Craig Marshall (Heidi) of Oak Ridge, and Owen Marshall (Hayley) of Kernersville; niece, Margot Behrens; nephew, Arto Behrens; many special great nieces and nephews; and his dedicated farm assistant, Johnna Osborne, who shared his love for farming and worked with him on the farm for many years.

We first met at NW Guilford- BG was such a nice guy and always pleasant and and smiling whenever I saw him. It´s been years since I last saw him; no doubt he lived his entire life that way. My condolences to Frances and the entire family.

Fran I am at a loss hearing that BG who was like a 2nd dad to me has passed away. I thought I had many more years left to laugh is jokes and hear his stories. He taught me how to be responsible and to be a hard worker. He would pull into my driveway at 4 in the morning and beep the horn but many mornings he would have to knock on the door to wake me up because I had fallen asleep in my recliner waiting for him. I will cherish many memories working on the farm with him. He taught me how to operate so many different types of machinery and trusted me 2 do a good job without him watching over me from the time I was eight years old until I was sixteen. So many Precious Memories even if I did smell like cow manure. I could talk to him about anything with no judgement. I love you and will miss you deeply BG. I'm so sorry I cannot be there to say goodbye in person because I am in the hospital as well. I hope you understand that I would be there if I could. Sending much love your way at this horribly hard time.
