David Samuel Marshall ’45

Published in Dec. 17, 2003, issue

The Rev. Dave Marshall died Nov. 29, 2002.

Dave entered Princeton from Shadyside Academy. He was a stalwart on three varsity teams: football, basketball, and baseball. Dave was captain of the baseball team and was awarded the John Poe Cup and the William Roper Trophy. A member of Cottage, he also belonged to the undergraduate council and was president of the Princeton Evangelical Fellowship.

Bill received his degree in English cum laude in 1945 and graduated from Grace Theological Seminary in Ridgewood, N.J., in 1947, then becoming pastor at Ridgewood's Grace Church. He married the former Lorraine Johnson in 1947.

In the late 1980s, Dave retired from Grace Church and moved to Cape Cod, where he assisted a variety of churches. During his 36 years at Grace Church, he was able to serve on mission boards in East Africa and South America. The class was privileged to have Dave address our 45th-year memorial service in the University Chapel in 1990.

In addition to Lorraine, Dave is survived by three sons, Bruce, Lawrence, and John, and by a daughter, Judy Adare. The class extends its sympathy to the family.
