Thomas Marshall

Keyser - Thomas Gregory Marshall. 69, of Ward Avenue, Keyser, WV, departed this life on Monday, September 27, 2021 at his home.

Born on November 19, 1951 in Keyser, WV, he was a son of the late Elmo Sloan and Naomi (Redman) Marshall. He also was preceded in death by a sister, Virginia Green and two brothers, Elmo S. Marshall, Jr. and Ronald "Hoke" Marshall.

Known as Tommy, Mr. Marshall was a 1970 graduate of Keyser High School where he was a wrestler. He was a former employee of Anchor Glass in Keyser and retired from the New Page Paper Mill in Luke, MD. He was also a U.S. Army veteran, serving in Germany during the Vietnam War, where he attained the rank of Sergeant. He was a member of Washington-Smith Post # 152, American Legion, Keyser and was an avid WVU sports fan, but most of all, he loved the Washington Redskins. Tommy enjoyed fishing and his float trips on the South Branch of the Potomac River with his best friend, Bill Redman, who was like a brother to him. Tommy will be missed by his entire family, including his nephews, nieces, cousins and his buddies at the Orioles Club.

Surviving are his daughters, Jennifer Sides and husband Lamont of Greensboro, NC and Tiaria Marshall of Darby, PA; three grandchildren, Jordan, Amani and Caleb Sides; six sisters, Deloris Fairfax of Piedmont, WV, Eula Sullivan of Piscataway, NJ, Betty Christmas and husband Cleveland of Keyser, Barbara Gary of Wilmington, DE, Christine Peck and husband Leroy of Cumberland, MD and Diane Twyman and husband Ted of Keyser; a brother, Victor Marshall of Keyser and a host of other extended family members and close friends.

At Mr. Marshall's request, there will be no visitation.

A private graveside service with military honors will be held at the Potomac Memorial Gardens, Keyser, at the convenience of the family.

The Smith Funeral Home and Crematory, Keyser, is in charge of the arrangements.

Condolences and personal reflections to the family may be left after Mr. Marshall's obituary at smithfuneralhomes.net.
