Dennis Marshall

According to his wishes, a celebration of Dennis A. Marshall’s life was shared March 29 with family and friends. His first harvested wine was appropriately shared with those he would have wanted to share it. A Navy Honor Guard was present at his burial at the Sacramento Valley VA National Cemetery in Dixon, and Ed Lech of Calvary Chapel in Grass Valley performed the service.

Mr. Marshall passed away March 19 at his home with his devoted wife of almost 23 years, Marilee, his daughter, Heather, and his son, Ken, nearby. He fought a valiant battle with cancer. He was 61.

Mr. Marshall was born in June 1945 in San Francisco. He served in the U.S. Navy in Vietnam.

Prior to moving to Nevada County, Mr. Marshall worked in the high-tech industry as an environment/safety director as well as facility manager for Varian and Teledyne Corp. After semi-retiring in 2000 to the Marshall Family compound on the Bear River in Nevada County, he became director of environmental services at Lake of the Pines, and, for a short while, was acting general manager. Mr. Marshall moved to Nevada County to support his parents, however, the move also allowed him room to realize a long-time dream of growing his own wine grapes.

Mr. Marshall is survived by his parents, Marjorie and Albert Marshall; brother, Ted Marshall; sisters, JoJean Baughn, Kay Strom Stein, Lou Hafey Lubarski and Martha Marshall; grandchildren, Landon, Ian, Julia; and daughter-in-law, Ann Marshall.

The Marshall family would like to express deep gratitude to the medical community that fought the battle with Mr. Marshall, and especially to Auburn Sutter Faith Hospice who so skillfully and devotedly met his every need for his last several months.
