A short time after graduating high school, Marshall joined the United States Navy on October 15, 1948 at the age of 20. He was part of the Air Transportation Squadron Twenty-One.

Shortly after leaving the Navy Marshall met and married the love of his life, Janet (Martin) Simcoe on November 30, 1952 at the First Christian Church in Buhl Idaho.
Marshall started a career first working at the Chevrolet Garage in Buhl. He then took a job in Burley, Idaho selling insurance. The final stage of his working career was truck driving.
