David Logar Marshall November 1, 1950 - February 2, 2021

David Logar Marshall of Hendersonville, NC passed away on February 2, 2021 after a brief battle with bladder cancer. He was 70 years old.

David was born in Richwood, WV on November 1, 1950 to John and Frances Marshall. After graduating from West Virginia University with a B.A. in accounting and political science, he went on to a successful career in management and manufacturing, working with companies such as Simmons Mattresses, Lee Industries, Gregg Industries, and BakeMark Industries. After retirement, he used his professional experience to assist local nonprofits, serving on the boards of the Hendersonville Community Foundation, the Rotary Club, and Bullington Gardens. He was also the Parish Business Administrator of Hendersonville’s St. James Episcopal Church and served as a member of St. James Charities.

With a strong sense of duty towards his family and the surrounding community, David was always eager to help in whatever capacity was needed. In his spare time, you could find him working in his woodshop, reading Patrick O’Brian novels, or enjoying fine food and wine with friends and loved ones. An avid car aficionado, David enjoyed Grand Prix racing and driving his beloved Porsche on the winding roads of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

He was preceded in death by his daughter Mary Marshall and is survived by his wife Peggy Marshall and daughter Ann Marshall.

Because of the pandemic, funeral services have been postponed and will be announced at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in his name to either Elizabeth House Hospice or Saint James Episcopal Church.

    I went to RHS with David and played trumpet in the band while he played the tuba — big guy, big instrument . The band members were a family of its own sharing many experiences and especially marches. Fond memories of him taking senior lifesaving with him! He gave me a really hard time trying to save him— wanted to make sure I wasn’t a slacker . Last time I saw him was at the RHS 50th class reunion ! Still friendly — great guy— one to be remembered fondly . RIP— until we meet again! Sincere sympathies extend to his family and many friends !

    Dear Peggy,
    We used to attend St. Paul’s Church, Edneyville, and fondly remember all the good work that David handled. He was very caring and as we were summer visitors from Florida, he always made us feel welcomed. We extend our deepest sympathy to you.
