Death of William Charles Frederick Marshall

15 July 2020

Grenadiers,

Sadly I report the death of William Charles Frederick Marshall, whom passed away on 23rd June 2020.

William Charles Frederick Marshall was born in Belvedere, Kent on 16 June 1934. He was known to his many friends as Bill. He served as a Guardsman in the Grenadier Guards during the 1950’s.

He was an extremely loyal and supportive member of the East Kent Branch and for many years served the Branch as, what we termed, our “Branch Visiting Friend”. In that role, he maintained regular contact with many of our members and Branch widows; especially those who were sick or who were unable to attend our Branch meetings or events. His dedication to the role was exemplary and even when hospitalised himself, he was still contacting other members to find out if there was anything he could do to help them.

Bill will be sorely missed by all who had the privilege to know him.

 

Bob Goodson,

Secretary

East Kent Branch
