Obituary of Barry Edward Marshall

Dr. Barry Edward Marshall, beloved husband, father and grandfather, died on Tuesday, July 21, 2020. He was born in Brooklyn, NY on November 3, 1936 to Herman and Mary Marshall. 

A graduate of The City College of NY, NYU Dental School, and a former Captain in the US Air Force, Barry was adored and admired by his patients, family and friends. He was infinitely loyal to his loved ones. He enjoyed traveling the world with his wife, Linda, the love of his life; solving the world’s problems with his “lunch bunch buddies;” and making his daughters and grandchildren belly laugh. He also loved engaging in intellectual, philosophical, and political discussions; imparting sage advice; writing for the Charlotte Observer, where he was a prolific independent writer of Letters to the Editor; and indulging his sweet tooth. He fought a difficult battle with Myelodysplasia for three years. His inexorable courage made him a hero to all who loved him. His sense of humor sustained him and everyone around him. Barry leaves an epic legacy of original song medleys, screenplays, and “Daddyisms.”

In addition to his parents, Barry is predeceased by his brother, Lloyd Marshall. He is survived by his wife, Linda; daughters, Stacey and Dana; grandchildren: Katie, Jack, Chloe and Connor; and sons-in-law, Michael and Dan. He is also survived by his adored sister, Eilene Schlessinger, brother-in-law, Stanley Schessingler; and sister-in-law, Myra Marshall.
