Marshall, John William age 78, died peacefully at his home on Thursday, September 21, 2023 in Butler Township, Ohio after a courageous 18-year battle with MDS/Leukemia. His family takes comfort that he passed on a beautiful morning, as the leaves were changing to welcome his favorite time of year.

It was here that he met Sandra Biddlestone, and they were married at the Niles First United Methodist Church on June 12, 1982. After 40 years with GM, John retired and spent his remaining years enjoying quality time with his family, a good book, and his beloved dog, Sadie. He is preceded in death by his sisters Panelin Worley and Susan Cable. John is survived by his wife, Sandra, and his daughter and son in-law, Kristen and Jonathan Eaton of Butler Township.
