Celebration of life on July 16 for Marshall M. Eaton, 1941-2016

A celebration of the life of Marshall M. Eaton is planned in West Seattle on July 16th. Here’s the remembrance his family is sharing with the community:

Marshall McHugh Eaton
December 12, 1941–June 8, 2016

Lifelong West Seattle resident; died at the VA hospital on June 8 from the effects of acute myeloid leukemia.

Marshall was born at Swedish hospital to Florence and Robert Eaton. He attended Gatewood, Madison, and West Seattle High, and graduated from South Seattle College. He is survived by his wife of 39 years, Carol Ann; sons Kevin Doyle (Yvonne) of Cheyenne, WY, and Mark Eaton; daughters, Ann-Marie Oliver (Danny) and Marguerite Eaton; three grandsons, one granddaughter, and one great-granddaughter. He is also survived by his brother Bill Eaton and sister Roberta Miller, loving nieces and nephews, longtime friends Elmo Lewis and Dennis Johnson, and many other dear friends.

He was a loving and devoted family man, and will forever be remembered for his sense of humor, love of cars, and ability to fix just about anything. The family wishes to thank the VA hospital, doctors, nurses, and staff for their care, kindness, and support shown to Marshall since his diagnosis. There will be a Celebration of Life for Marshall, July 16 at 2:00, at St John the Baptist Episcopal Church Parish Hall, 3050 California Ave. SW, in West Seattle.

In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Foundation, or any veterans’ charity.

     Got to chat with Marshall at a bunch of holiday events over the years.  He was a great guy and will be very missed in this community!

    Marshall was a co-op preschool dad who I got the pleasure of working with at SSCC. He was always great with the kids, fun with the moms when there were not many dads in the system and just an all around good guy.  May he RIP. My thoughts are with Carol and the rest of the family.
