Craig Alan Marshall
Always Kept Busy -
Craig Alan Marshall, age 73, of New Cumberland, and formerly of Etters, passed away at home on Wednesday, February 5, 2020. Craig was born on Saturday, February 1, 1947 in New Haven, CT to the late James Norman Marshall and Ethel Evelyn (Beebe) Marshall. In addition to his parents, Craig is preceded in death by his former spouse and friend, Diana Jane Hulbert.
Craig’s survivors include his two children: Keith A. Marshall and his wife, Becky, of Lewisberry, Heather A. Ordaz and her husband, Eric, Sr., of Harrisburg; his three grandchildren: Braxston Marshall, Eric Ordaz, Jr., Ciara Ordaz with one more grandchild on the way; and his brother, Russell “Russ” Marshall of Carlisle.
Craig graduated from Cedar Cliff High School as part of the class of 1966 and from Pennsylvania State University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. He proudly served in the United States Army Reserve for seven years as a helicopter mechanic. Craig was quite the outdoorsman; he enjoyed going hiking and camping. In his younger years, he liked to scuba dive sometimes doing so with crocodiles and alligators. Craig also loved to go skiing and sail boating, often on the Chesapeake Bay where his family had a big sailboat. Later in his life, Craig could be found out riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle. He was never without something to do; Craig will be remembered for always keeping busy.
Craig’s family will be remembering his life privately. Interment in Tri-County Memorial Gardens in Lewisberry will be at the family’s convenience. Cremation was private.
