Charles Hugh (Charley) Marshall

The Los Angeles Times, 10/22/2008


MARSHALL, Charles Hugh (Charley) Charley passed away at the age of 77 on Wednesday, October 15, 2008, in Bowling Green, OH, after a lengthy fight with cancer.

He was born in Los Angeles on October 22, 1931, to Daniel G. Marshall and Dorothy Crowley Marshall. Charley graduated from Loyola Law School. He loved baseball and played throughout school and for two years in the professional minor leagues.

He was drafted into the Army and served honorably, being discharged in 1956. He was employed by UPS until being medically retired.

Charley married Esther Hambridge on June 23, 1973, and she survives. Also surviving are three sisters: Jane Talso of Albuquerque, NM, Martha Stevenson of Damascus, MD, and Veronica Varela of Phoenix, AZ, and one nephew, Daniel Talso of Albuquerque, NM. Charley's sisters remember his biting sense of humor.

He was a talented political cartoonist. As Charley desired, no services are planned. His family is eternally grateful to Charley's devoted caretakers and the Bridge Hospice health care professionals in Ohio who provided him with emotional and physical support. He will be missed.
