Condolence & Memory Journal

It was a privilege to have known Marshall. I met Marshall at Limerick Nuclear Power Plant in the 90's . He was considerate, kind and very professional. We kept in touch over the years and recently reconnected in the Florida Keys where he loved to winter. I will always remember Marshall for his friendship and his thoughtfulness. May his memory be eternal.

Marshall was an important good friend since he and Phyllis got together and which continued on through his relationship with Joy. Those were all happy times with many fine memories of Diane, Leslie, Janelle, April, and Rhonda.

Mel and I cherish so many fine memories. Outstanding among them were the two weeks we spent on Beef Island in the British Virgin Islands with Marshall and Phyllis. They were wonderful traveling companions.

We are sorry for your loss; we will miss him, too.

I worked as a secretary in the early years at TMI. I remember Marshall as a leader who would answer the plant & procedure questions I had at that time. He was a great Shift Supervisor & a gentleman to everyone. My sympathies to his family.

My deepest sympathy to the family of Marsh. I remember him from my childhood and teen years as being such a kind-hearted all around nice guy. He and Phyllis were friends of my late parents, Ann and Bob Polson. May he RIP. God bless!
