John "Jack" Marshall, 75

LACONIA — John "Jack" Marshall, 75, of 21 Gilbert St., born March 28, 1940, slipped quietly and gently away Friday evening, May 8, 2015, in the loving arms of his wife of 42 years, Trudi.

Jack, as he was known by his family and friends, was raised in the construction business trade, starting at an early age working with his father in the family business, John C. Marshall & Sons. He merged with another construction firm to form Mooney Corporation in the late 1970s and worked on many larger commercial job sites over the years, such as LRGH renovations and Kingswood Regional High and Vocational School, as well as recreational venues, such as Black Bear Ski Lodge and the Lodge at Loon Mountain. After the building bust in the 1990s, Jack worked at Howland's Laundromat and with their construction section of the business. He really had come full circle from small-home renovations, to multimillion-dollar commercial jobs, back to small-home renovations.

When the laundromat was sold to Dan and Sandy Roberts, Jack came as part of the package, repairing the machinery and helping with the electronics. This was a job he relished because he could see how to take one thing and make it entirely serve another purpose that surpassed the usefulness of the original item. In 2001 Jack obtained his amateur radio license as a technician and had the call sign of KB1GQT, which gave him a great deal of pleasure. He very much enjoyed "lurking" and listening in on the weekly meetings as well as to the calls on the local repeater.

Due to health issues, Jack officially retired from work in July 2014, devoting his time to his family. He remained active until the very end, working on numerous projects, both of his own making, and assisting others with theirs.

At Jack's request, he donated his organs to the New England Organ Bank in Waltham, Mass., which can only serve to underscore his generosity

and love.

Jack was predeceased by his parents, John and Wilma Marshall.

He is survived by his wife, Trudi, his son, Marc Marshall, his daughter-in-law, Megan and grandchildren Jack and Josie all of Wichita, Kan.; his daughter, Kim Marshall and his grandchildren Caelan of Phoenix, Ariz., and Laconia, Eliana and Phoenix Norwood, of Laconia; his sister, Jeanne McCutcheon of Exeter, R.I.; his brothers, Alan and David Marshall of Framingham, Mass., and Philip Marshall and his sister-in-law Beth Marshall of The Woodlands, Texas. He also leaves nine nieces and nephews, living in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Virginia and Nicaragua; 22 great-nieces and great-nephews; and two great-great-nephews.

Calling hours will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 14, 2015, at the Wilkinson-Beane-Simoneau-Paquette Funeral Home, 164 Pleasant St., Laconia, using the Carriage House entrance. Interment will on Friday May 15, 2015, at 11 a.m. at the family plot in Union Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations be made to Lakes Region Community Emergency Response Team, 67 Water St., Suite 105, Laconia, NH 03246, to help them prepare to help others.
