Marshall was the owner of Lowe’s Paving & Sealcoating and he was a member of the Moose Lodge #1516 in Taylorville. Marshall was known for his very strong work ethic. He started his business with a tank in the back of a pickup truck and over 20 years of hard work and determination, built it into a very successful paving,sealcoating and striping business. When he wasn't out working with asphalt, you could find him at home working on any number of projects.
