Sorry to hear about Marshall’s demise. His knowledge of antiques and art was immense. His dry and wry sense of humor will be missed.

Condolence from Paul Dillingham on August 18th, 2015 8:47 am

Marshall and I shared a business interest for more than 25 years. It wasn’t nearly long enough. He will be missed.

Condolence from Lauren Bugg on September 4th, 2015 11:20 am

Marshall is sorely missed! We had such interesting conversations every time he was in our stores. No one had the credentials and knowledge he had for doing our appraisals with the public.

Marshall is sorely missed! Marshall had the credentials and the knowledge to single handedly conduct our regular Appraisal Fairs at GasLamp Antiques. We had such mesmerizing conversations each time he came into our stores. The suddenness of this loss is jolting and sad. We all offer you our deepest sympathies and care.

First I want to say I am very sorry for your lost. I didn’t know him but I wish I would have. However, I only googled his name because I think he took photos of my late father Freddy Fender and my family in August 1976 in San Benito, Texas. There is a photo and I would love to use for my biography on my father soon to be released. It said he worked for the Nashville Beat. I didn’t see it on the internet. If you have any photo of the event of Freddy Fender “Coming Home” I would appreciate permission to use it. The newspaper clipping is faded so if you had this photo that would be great. Again, so sorry and especially that I was only a month late in searching for him.

I first met Marshall in 1966. We were both grad students in English at Vanderbilt. We both had interests off campus. In music, film, and other. We played in the same poker game for several years. In the 1970s I used Marshall a number of times in radio commercials which aired here in Nashville. These were creative spots that required an ability to act and do accents. The attempt was to sell products through humor and amusement. Marshall was my first choice in many of these spots. I saved three of them and have them on my reel. You or your children may have an interest in acquiring a copy of these. You can hear Marshall’s voice at work. His vitality and humor. If so, please contact me either by phone 615-269-060 or, better, by email: cianma@comcast.net. I will email the radio commercials to any relative who has an interest. Best, Anthony Cianciolo

I was good friends with Marshall over at least twenty-five years. My wife, Cindy and I were witnesses at the final review of his Doctoral thesis at Vanderbilt, went to his graduation party where Deford Bailey played what was perhaps his last gig. I did plays with him, we hung out and drank together. We discussed books, plays and music. He included me in his book on Country Music as one of Nashville’s promising young songwriters. We were great friends for what seemed like forever until suddenly he dropped out of sight. This is my first notice that he is gone. He was a great friend and a wonderful, brilliant guy. We are all much poorer for his loss. I pray he will be treated gently on the,next leg of his journey. Rest easy, buddy.
