IN MEMORIAM IT IS WITH GrEAT SADNESS THAT WE received the news from past AGC Chairman David Marshall of the passing of his father Jack Marshall. Jack was an active member of the chapter for more than 60 years, serving on the Board of Directors from 1960-1980. He was also an active member of the Chapter's Collective Bargaining Committee throughout most of his career. Upon hearing about his death, past AGC Executive Director Pat Kiley summed it up best, "It is a sad day. He was a real duty soldier." A memorial service celebrating Jack's life was held at Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church on February 22, 2016. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, P.O. Box 4486, Houston, Texas 77210-4486. Jack grew up in Houston, attending Lamar High School and Rice University, earning a degree in Civil Engineering. His college education was interrupted by World War II, where he served in the United States Navy. Upon graduation from Rice, Jack went to work for his Father's firm, Marshall Construction Company. In 1952, he met Sally Parnell and they were married a year later. Jack's career at Marshall Construction spanned 65 years, over which time he constructed hundreds of buildings all around the Greater Houston area. Some of his favorite projects included buildings for Rice University, Memorial High School, and the Museum of Natural Science.
