William H. Marshall

November 1, 1954 — December 10, 2022

Bill (Will) Marshall, a long-time resident of Davis, passed away after a short illness.  He was surrounded by his wife and children.  Bill was a graduate of UC Davis, Department of Engineering.  He went on to work as a Civil Engineer for city governments, working in the Department of Public Works for the City of Davis for over 30 years.  Upon retirement, he worked as a surveyor for several years.  In whatever role Bill took on in his life, he was a mentor and teacher.

Bill was an active member of St. James Parish in Davis.  He was active in the Davis community in many ways.  He was an AYSO soccer referee for several years when his children were young.  He was an election poll worker for over 2 decades.  He served on the Davis Cemetery Board.  Bill was very generous to many charities and reached out to the unsheltered, giving $2 bills for luck and treating those he saw in need to a meal.  Each year Bill and his family would adopt a family for the STEAC Holiday Program. 

Bill was an Eagle Scout.  He enjoyed camping, backpacking and hiking.  Most of all, he enjoyed family time and had a great love of dogs.  He will be missed by his wife Nina, children William, Susan and Stephen (Jenna) and his granddaughter, along with extended family and dear friends.  A rosary will be held December 19, Monday evening at 7 p.m at the Smith Funeral Home, 116 D Street.

The funeral mass will begin at 10:00 a.m. Tuesday, December 20, at St. James Catholic Church, 1275 B St. in Davis, with a gravesite service for family and those who would like to attend, immediately following.  A reception will be held at St. James Parish directly after the mass.
