hon William Marshall, 76, passed away on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The son of the late Clifford and Maria Marshall, he is survived by family members Kathryn, Bill, Michael, Lori, Larry, Emily, Seth, Grace, Ava, Ben, and Michelle.
Marshall produced and directed more than one hundred plays in his years as an educator and community theatre aficionado. As an actor he performed at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, the Showboat Majestic, and several community theatre stages.
Upon his retirement from teaching, May 24, 1996 was declared “Jhon Marshall Day” in Cincinnati. Following retirement he continued to make an impact by working at the home office of the Educational Theatre Association. A member of both the Ohio and National EDTA Hall of Fame, Marshall always wanted his students to “develop a sense of ensemble, stressing that every student involved with the production in any capacity shared an equal responsibility for its ultimate success.”
