He passed away peacefully on January 15, 2006 after many years of declining health due to Alzheimer’s Disease. He is survived by his devoted wife of 61 years, Juanita Sanders Comer and was a son of the late William Thomas Comer and Myrtle L. Sanders Comer.

Marshall grew up in the Excelsior Mill area of Union, of which he was very proud. He graduated from Union High School and Wofford College. He served in the US Navy from 1942 to 1945 in the Utility Air Squadrons in the West Coast and Pacific regions, and spent 17 years in the US Naval Reserve. He worked at Excelsior Mill for many years and treasured the friends he made there. He taught school for ten years in the Union High School Veteran Training Program, while also working at Excelsior Mill. Marshall served on the Union City Council from 1962 to 1964, and served as Mayor Pro Tem. He served eight years in the S.C. House of Representatives from 1965 to 1972 as a member of the Union County Delegation which included Furman L. Fendley, Sen. John D. Long, and Sen. John D. Long, III. During their service together in the Legislature, they were a strong team, and Union County experienced significant economic growth from their efforts. He was elected to the S.C. Employment Security Commission by the S.C. Legislature in 1972 and served as a Commissioner for eight years until his retirement in 1980.

Legislative newspaper reporter, who said, “I have said to many people over the years when discussing my years in Columbia that one of the few people I could really believe without having to check anything was Marshall...I couldn’t say that about too many ...most of them I would check behind before printing anything as gospel... but not Marshall.”
