Richard (Dick) Marshall passed away peacefully on March 3,2023 in Penetang, Ontario just days short of his 95th birthday.
Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, he never strayed too far from the water and was always within reach of a sailboat.
Shortly after graduating from Dalhousie University, he relocated to Montreal, accepting a position as Associate Professor of Accounting at McGill University.
Upon retiring from his 35 year career at McGill, he retired to Elmvale, Ontario while spending his winters in Bradenton, Florida.
He was a longtime member of the United Church of Canada, the Masonic Lodge, and the Canadian Power Squadron.
He volunteered his time as treasurer for many organizations over the years including the McGill Faculty Club, Canadian Power Squadron (Lake St. Louis district), Senneville Yacht Club and Paradise Bay Estates in Bradenton.
He leaves behind his wife of 67 years Lorrie, his children Peter (Lesley) and Gehl (Raphael) along with his many grandchildren, sister-in-law, nephews and niece.
As per his wishes, there will be no visitation or service. His ashes will be interred at the cemetery in Elmvale, Ontario later this year.
Memorial donations made in his name to the Canadian Cancer Society or the McGill University Faculty of Management would be welcomed.
