Russell "Russ" Norman Marshall

October 23, 1955 — August 7, 2023



Russell “Russ” Norman Marshall, age 67, of Carlisle passed away on Monday, August 7, 2023.  Russ was born on Sunday, October 23, 1955, in Augusta to the late James Norman Marshall and Ethel Evelyn (Beebe) Marshall.  In addition to his parents, Russ is preceded in death by his brother: Craig Marshall.  

Russ’s survivors include his nephew: Keith Marshall and his wife, Becky, of Lewisberry; his niece: Heather Ordaz and her husband, Eric, of Harrisburg; and his many great nieces and nephews.  

Russ graduated from Cedar Cliff High School as part of the class of 1975.  He retired from Bobby Rahal Automotive in 2022, after many years of service working as a custodian.  Russ waited for winter every year so that he and his father could go skiing at Ski Roundtop, a favorite activity of his.  He was an excellent artist, becoming known for his charcoal drawings in particular.  Russ was very compassionate towards other people, and was always finding the perfect gifts to give at birthdays and holidays. He was a true storyteller, using his sense of humor to tell funny stories about his mischievous youth.  Family was his first priority, and loved spending time with his nieces and nephews.  Russ always attended every sporting event to cheer them on.  He will be greatly missed by his family.  

A gathering will be announced once scheduled.  

Russ’s family has entrusted his care to Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory in Mechanicsburg, (717) 766-3421.  Read Russ’s full obituary, view his memorial video and portrait, offer condolences and sympathy, share stories and memories, upload photographs and videos, light a candle and sign his official guest book by visiting
