Gregory Coan Marshall Obituary

from Washington D. C., Washington, D.C., United States


A generous and kind soul

Gregory Coan Marshall, age 54, passed away in Washington DC, after a hard-fought battle against metastatic prostate cancer.  A native Washingtonian, Gregory attended Beauvoir Elementary and St. Albans School.  In 1990, he graduated from Princeton University with an A.B. in architecture.  He applied his intellect and skill to the fields of computer-aided design and information technology, most recently as the Assistant Tunnel Manager for the DC Department of Transportation.

In addition to his smile, many were attracted to Gregory’s quiet, calm, and humble demeanor. He was a willing listener and a thoughtful, articulate, trusted advisor. Gregory also was a man of many creative talents, including drawing, painting, and building.  He was a comic book and sci-fi film enthusiast and an avid action figure collector.  He could fix just about anything, approaching each project with patience and meticulousness such that whatever he touched shone brighter upon completion.

Gregory will be remembered always as a generous and kind son, brother, father, partner, and friend. He is survived by his mother Rita Hall Marshall, his father and stepmother Everett and Beverly Marshall, his brother Everett “Chip” Marshall III and family, his sister Keren Dolan and family, his children Caleb and Esther (“Dechen”) Dyson-Marshall, his partner Mary Johnson and her son Amar Johnson, and numerous nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts, cousins, and friends who love him dearly.
