1923-2013

Don Marcus Marshall slipped away gently from the loving arms of his earthly family to the everlasting arms of his Heavenly Father on Sunday, June 2, 2013, at the age of 89 years, after a heroic battle with Alzheimer’s disease. He was born on Aug. 25, 1923, in San Antonio, Texas, to Edgar and Florence Bell (Wilson) Marshall.

Don was a self-made man, on his own by the age of 17. He married Bertie Idell Carson on Aug. 17, 1940, and soon after, he left for World War II. Upon his safe return home, he began his own paving construction business and named it Marshall Construction Co. This was a successful living for him throughout his life. During his 20s, he rode motorcycles and drove with speed at competitive cycle events. Bertie was always his partner, holding on for life! Don and Bertie were married 73 years, through good times and hard times ... they stayed strong together. Don’s hobbies included fishing and hunting with family and friends; he often spoke about his experiences with his son on hunting trips in North America, the Amazon jungle, Africa, and Canada. He raised Appaloosa horses and was director and president of both the National and Texas Appaloosa Horse Clubs and was inducted into the National Hall of Fame. He rode the Chief Joseph and Alamo Trail rides on registered Appaloosas for 24 years. He was a director and director emeritus for the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo. Don belonged to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Department Support Division and retired after 48 years. During that time he was also active in the Bexar County Sheriff’s Mounted Posse. Don was a proud man with a kind heart and will be sorely missed by his family and loved ones, said his family.

Don was preceded in death by his parents; and a granddaughter, Stacey Marshall.

He is survived by his loving wife, Bertie Marshall; son Don E. Marshall Sr. and wife Sandy; daughter Jennifer Kopeck and husband Robert; grandchildren Donald E. Marshall Jr., Daryl Kopeck and wife Dawn, Damon Kopeck and wife Karen, and Deana Kopeck and fiancé Keith; six great-grandchildren; one great-great-granddaughter; and many loving friends.

Visitation was held on Sunday, June 9, from 5-8 p.m. in the Finch Funeral Chapel in La Vernia.

A funeral service was held on Monday at 11 a.m. in the funeral chapel, officiated by Brother Jerry Cosper.

Interment followed in the Sunset Memorial Park in San Antonio.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Southeast Baptist Church, 2214 S. W.W. White Road, San Antonio, TX 78222, or the Alzheimer Association, P.O. Box 96011, Washington, D.C. 20090-6011 or www.alz.org.
