Charlie Marshall Passes Away After Long Illness

ARANSAS PASS - The community of Aransas Pass is mourning the loss of Charlie Marshall, described Friday by the City Manager as "a city forefather".

Marshall is the longtime owner of Charlie Marshall Funeral Home, but his leadership extended well beyond his business.

He served for decades as a trustee on the Aransas Pass ISD school board as well as a board member for countless other groups.

Marshall even had an elementary school named after him in 1997.

According to current City Manager Sylvia Carrillo, Marshall passed away Friday from a long term illness while surrounded by his family.

Carrillo said they are planning a large gathering at the Aransas Pass Civic Center sometime late next week for the community to remember Charlie Marshall.
