On Tuesday, January 26,2021, John Robert Marshall, friend to all and father to three children, passed away at age 69.
John, lovingly referred to as Bobby and "John Bob", was born June 4, 1951 in San Jose, CA to George Marshall and Joyce Johnson. He graduated from Branham High School and enlisted in the Air Force in 1970, where he served his country for four years. On February 12, 1977, he married Diana Lynne Juster. They raised their son John, and their daughters, Kimberly and Kelly.
Bobby was known for his quick wit, laughter and lively spirit. He never met a stranger, only new friends. His infectious personality, sparkly blue eyes, and warm smile were welcomed by all. He was an incredible friend, a simple and humble man, a fun-loving father, and a playful grandpa. He loved NASCAR, golfing, fishing, jazz festivals, boat shows, air shows, and traveling with his friends. A veteran and true patriot, the Fourth of July was his favorite holiday. He insisted on enjoying life and made it impossible for those around him not to enjoy life with him.
Bobby was preceded in death by his father, George, and his mother, Joyce. He is survived by his partner Donna, his three children, Kimberly, John, and Kelly, his grandchildren, Joshua, Maison, and Brendon, his brother George, his sisters Diane and Jeannette, his cousin, Johanna, many in-laws, nieces and nephews, and countless, amazing friends.
We invite you to join us for a memorial service followed by a Celebration of Life for Bobby at the Carmichael Elks Lodge, located at 5631 Cypress Avenue – Carmichael, CA 95608 on May 22nd, 2021 at 11am.
