MARSHALL, Andrew Andrew Michael Marshall Feb. 15, 1990 – Oct. 12, 2023 In loving memory of Andrew Michael Marshall, who passed away suddenly near Lethbridge, Alberta. Andrew was born in Lethbridge, Alberta, the youngest son of Suzanne Marshall. Andrew was predeceased by his mother, Suzanne Leta Marshall and his grandparents, John (Jack) Marshall and Donna Marshall.
Andrew leaves to mourn; daughters Jade and Lily, brothers Russell (Courtney) Marshall, Matthew Ball and Stephen (Monica) Marshall, Kieran Ashcroft-Ball and sisters Paige Ashcroft-Ball and Amanda Ashcroft-Ball.
Andrew also leaves behind Paul Marshall, the uncle who raised him, his grandmother Rosalind (Roz) Edgar, and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
No matter his pain or struggle, Andrew always loved his family. His cherished daughters were everything to him, and he prized the moments he spent with them. Uncle Paul was his ‘go-to’ guy, and together they spent countless hours talking, often deep into the night.
Andrew was an accomplished welder and fabricated steel roses, which he sold to raise funds for local drug and alcohol recovery programs. Andrew recently returned to work and was looking forward to a future of re-sets and new opportunities when he passed away.
Andrew will be deeply missed by those who love him, and his family would like you to join them for services at King of Kings Fellowship Church on November 18, 2023, at 1:30 p.m., 539 18 Street, South. Lethbridge, AB 403-394-0990.
