December 24, 1959 – December 29, 2023

Billy Wayne "Bill" Marshall was born December 24, 1959, in Norton, VA, to Darvin and Ganell Marshall of the Sandy Ridge community of Coeburn, VA. He was a graduate of Coeburn High School class of 1978 and Clinch Valley College class of 1982. Bill worked as an insurance adjuster of Farm Bureau and Nationwide Insurance Companies in Eastern North Carolina and Virginia.

Bill was a quiet man, but he truly enjoyed putting on a big Halloween display for the neighborhood kids when his health permitted, doted on his nieces and nephews and provided foster care for a time. He enjoyed working on classic cars and was an avid reader. His dogs were his constant companions throughout his life, and any conversation with him usually contained stories about his dogs.

He was preceded in death by his father, the late Darvin Marshall.

Bill is survived by his mother, Ganell Marshall of St Paul, VA; brother and sister-in-law, John and Vickie Marshall of Frederick, MD; nephews, Cheyne and Ryan Marshall of Frederick, MD; niece, Erin Marshall of St. Augustine, FL.
