He was born in New York City, raised in Oyster Bay, and graduated from St. Paul’s, where he was class president. At Princeton he ate at Charter and majored in history, graduating magna cum laude. He spent a year fellowship at Trinity College, Cambridge, and then earned a law degree from Harvard, graduating cum laude.
Marshall went from Harvard to Sullivan and Cromwell, enjoying a distinguished 22-year career at Exxon and retiring in 2000 as general tax counsel of Exxon Co. International.
Later, he was an adjunct professor at Fairleigh Dickinson and served in many capacities in Harding Township, N.J., including mayor, and on the boards of the Great Swamp Watershed Association and the Washington Association.
His primary focus was his family, and he was always energized by their pursuits and accomplishments. He lived in a manner that earned the respect and admiration of those around him. He attended Reunions regularly and had a wide circle of friends in our class.
He is survived by his wife of more than 50 years, Margaret; sons John and Stephen; five grandchildren; and brother Edmund and his wife, Mary. Our hearts go out in sympathy to his family and close friends at the loss of this extraordinary individual.
