Memories Timeline


  1. J.A., Joyce and Kevin are part of our precious memories from Pantego days. Dian and I are send our prayers for the Father’s sufficiency to be very real to you during this time.

  2. My condolences to Mr. Marshall’s family. He wasn’t just a Department Head at the city, he was the leader of our department, and I certainly enjoyed working for him during his time at the city.

  3. Joyce and Kevin, may God bless
    and comfort you during this time and the days ahead. JA was such an awesome man, husband, and dad. I always enjoyed our annual visits and wished we could have seen more of each other. He was always so interested and caring about me and my life and made me feel so good. The only regret I have is we never got that family reunion together that we spoke about each year – knowing days like this were coming. This Jesse Andrew Marshall will miss Jessie Andrew Marshall! Again, you are in our thoughts and prayers! We love you!

  4. Mrs. Joyce Marshall, Mr. Kevin Marshall please accept the deepest condolences from Nick and Rita Nezafati. May God give you patience and peaceful moments during this tender time to your family. Mr. J. A. Marshall was a true public servant, who showed me how to value the people’s need, and to give dedicated service to Customers at City of Fort Worth.
