Patrick and Michelle,
The regiment has just learned of your dad's passing last year.
Your dad and I served together in the Horse Guards for the totality of his service - until his job took him off to Winnipeg and then to California.
We, when we both worked in the downtown area of Toronto, had lunch frequently and even after he left the Regiment and the city we remained in contact. As a matter of fact, when both your mother and father visited family here in Toronto, they had dinner with Rochelle and me.
Even after, we communicated all too infrequently by phone, when we could, and by even-more-infrequently, by email. All's the pity.
Even now, after almost a year after your dad's passing and after just receiving the notice via the regimental network, I am fondly reminded of both of them.
To both of you, and your families, all the best for many years to come in absolutely wonderful health and happiness.
John Burns, Lt Col (Ret'd)

It is with a deep feeling of sadness we have only now learned of the passing of Major Marshman through this online obituary. Although far removed from Canada, he continued to maintain his ties with his Regiment, The Governor General's Horse Guards, through the Regimental Association and a subscription of the Association's newsletter. Although his service may have preceeded that of many of our young soldiers we honour every Horse Guard for their service to the Regiment and to Canada.

On behalf of all members of our Regimental Family, I extend our deepest condolences to his daughter Michele, his son Pat and all of his extended family.
