Frederick L. Marshall, Sr., age 96, passed away peacefully with his family by his side at the Keuka Comfort Care Home on March 22, 2014.

Friends and family may call from Noon until 2pm on Saturday, March 29th 2014 at St. Michael's Church, Liberty St., Penn Yan where a Memorial Mass will be celebrated following at 2pm.

Born in Waterloo on December 15, 1917 he was the son of the late John and Clara (Myers) Marshall. He was raised and educated there and married his high school sweetheart Catherine (Velte) on September 2, 1938. They moved to Newark, NY where he was manager of the A&P at the age of 20. He later became manger of Penn Yan's A&P for 20 years. He and his wife owned and operated Marshall's IGA Foodliner from 1957-1970. The store was then sold to Mobil Oil Co. In 1976 he worked for Upstate Transfer Consortium as a school bus driver. He then became the bus dispatcher for the next 6 years after which time he permanently retired.

Fred was an active member of the Penn Yan community through his involvement with the Kiwanis and Ellsworth Hose Co. from the early 1940's until his death. He was Penn Yan's Fire Chief from 1954-1956. He also was active at St. Michael's Catholic Church serving as an usher and greeter for many years. He enjoyed being a member of the Lakeside Country Club for over 50 years. He was president of the country club for 2 years, a member of their Borad of Directors for 2 terms, and chairman of the House Committee for many years. Fred enjoyed golfing, fishing, hunting, and entertaining. His family and friends fondly referred to their home as "Club Marshall".

He was predeceased by his loving wife and companion, Catherine of 71 years and his son Frederick L. Marshall, Jr. He is survived by his two daughters Barbara (Ronald) Brown and Bonnie Davis. Also surviving are his six grandchildren Scott (Elaine) Brown, Kimberly (John) Chappo, Suzanne (Greg) Metelsky, Pamela Davis, Brian (Diana) Davis, and Kenneth and David O'Brien-Davis. He has six great-grandchildren Tara Chappo, Brandon Chappo, Jacqueline Hennes, Brett Hennes, Joshua Brown, and Logan Brown.

Fred wanted all of his many, wonderful friends to know he was dying of a broken heart. And although he will miss you all dearly he is looking forward to being reunited with his "sweetie".

Contributions may be made in his name to Keuka Comfort Care Home, PO Box 107, Penn Yan, NY 14527 or Ontario-Yates Hospice, 756 Pre-Emption Rd., Geneva, NY 14456.
