John Young Marshall
April 10, 1935 ~ October 12, 2023 (age 88) 88 Years Old
John Young Marshall passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 12, 2023, in Calgary, Alberta, at the age of 88 years.
John was born on April 10, 1935, to Robert and Agnes Marshall in East Kilbride, Scotland. He was the youngest of three children, predeceased by his parents and brothers Hugh and David.
John enjoyed over 40 years with his loving wife Isobel, until her passing in 2015. He is survived by his children, Janet (Rob) and David (Paula); and grandchildren, Gareth, Charlie, Claire, and Lauren.
John owned and operated hotels in Scotland and was an accomplished lawn bowler, earning titles at the local, national, and international levels, including the Commonwealth Games, where he won a bronze medal in Christchurch, New Zealand in 1974. John immigrated to Airdrie, Alberta, with Isobel and the children in 1992, and continued in hotel management and entrepreneurship until his retirement. John had a great love for soccer, passionately supporting the Glasgow Rangers for his entire life. He was also a great supporter of his son, David, and the various soccer teams he played on in both Scotland and Canada.
John is lovingly remembered for his strength, work ethic, and a tremendous sense of humour. He was a great husband, dad, and papa, who would do anything for those he loved. His eyes lit up at the sight of his grandchildren and there was nothing he enjoyed more than them.
The family would like to say a special thank you to the very caring staff at AgeCare Midnapore, for their kindness to John over the past four years.
Rest in peace, Dad. You leave us with a lifetime of great memories and much to be grateful for.
