I always enjoyed visiting with your dad on my trips to Bellaire. His stories were very interesting to say the least. He certainly lived life to its fullest. He’ll be missed. If and when you come this way, be sure to get in touch.

I am Bob and Virginia Alexander’s older son. I wish to extend my sincere condolences to the McCorkle family and friends. I knew Marshall and most members of his immediate family when I was in school and knew him as a man who always smiled a lot and had a kind word to say for everyone who knew him. He and my Dad were close friends and knew each other on sight and would always stop to talk no matter where they were at the time.

He will be missed.

If We Could Bring You Back Again

If we could bring you back again,

For one more hour or day,

WeâÄôd express all our unspoken love;

WeâÄôd have countless things to say.

If we could bring you back again,

WeâÄôd say we treasured you,

And that your presence in our lives

Meant more than we ever knew.

If we could bring you back again,

To tell you what we should,

YouâÄôd know how much we miss you now,

And if we could, we would.

By Joanna Fuchs

Praying for you in this hour of sorrow. Keith, Faith, Matthew, Mark, Patience, Desiree and Anthony

Marshall was a wonderful thoughtful caring man !!! It always amazed me that he would remember who I was and who I married. At Dad’s “Bill Koher” funeral he hugged me called me by name and ask if I was still married to that Cox boy. The Brooks Run gang is taking over Heaven !!! God Bless

My mother Betty Cudrik who is now deceased, loved your dad, she went back to school, when she was in her 20’s so that she could give her children a good life. I went to all the foot ball games and knew all too well, about the BIG REDS…my mom never missed a game. I am so very sorry to hear about your father, I remember my mother always telling us kids how much she admired your father and so many other class mates, in Ohio..God bless your family. 941-627-2043 is my number here in Florida, Mary Cudrik Carmean
