Lawrence Richard Bedford Marshall
It is with great sadness that the family of Lawrence ‘Larry’ Richard Bedford Marshall announce his passing on November 10, 2017 at the Oromocto Public Hospital. Born on July 28, 1930, in Middleton, NS, Larry was the son of the late Allison and Eva (VanBuskirk) Marshall.
In his early years, Larry was a member of the military reserve where he worked during the summers while attending school. He began his career at Dupont in Montreal and then moved to Fredericton and worked for the Province of NB in the Department of Commerce and Technology for 23 years prior to his retirement. During his time with the provincial government, he was seconded to the University of New Brunswick to launch the International Business and Entrepreneurship Centre.
One of Larry’s passions was sports. In 1951 he was inducted into the Nova Scotia Baseball Hall of Fame for his part in winning the Maritime intermediate Baseball Championship. In 2004 he was inducted into the Sports Hall of Fame at Dalhousie University for winning the Purdy Cup championship for football. Larry was a long-time member of the Fredericton golf and curling club.
