Robert G. 'Bob' Marshall, Jr.

Marshall Jr., Robert G. "Bob" 87 of Edina MN passed peacefully on January 22nd surrounded by his family. Preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Meta Marshall and sister Barbara. Survived by wife Marilyn, daughters Julie (John Anderson), Jana Hoffmann, and son John (Ann Marie). Grandchildren Lauren and Erik Anderson, Susie and Nikki Hoffmann, and Ella and Sophie Marshall. Brother Tourney (Marion), cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Bob grew up in Minneapolis and graduated from West High and the University of MN. He was a Golden Gloves boxer for the MN Gophers and a Korean War vet. He and Marilyn met, and fell in love while attending the U. They recently celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary in Mexico and have had a long marriage filled with adventures. Bob lived life to the fullest and was always up for exploration and adventure which was a gift to his family as we have so many wonderful memories. Bob was a very creative entrepreneur. His career began at General Mills; however, he realized that the corporate world wasn't for him so he started a sales promotion business which allowed him to use his creativity. This led to the real estate chapter of his life. His projects provided our family with so many fun times. He developed the first condominium project on the North Shore in Tofte, MN where we spent many summers and most weekends skiing in the winter. Also the St. Croix River Inn in Osceola, WI where we spent many wonderful Thanksgivings with the Torgerson and Anderson families beginning a 30 year tradition. He developed the Greenway Athletic Club in downtown Mpls in the 80's and was a fierce racquetball player. He built the Lowry Ridge Townhomes in Minneapolis and a home in Puerto Vallarta which is enjoyed by many. He loved spending time with his family and golfing with his long-time friends; and was always up for an outing. He is no doubt meeting old friends and making new ones in Heaven.Visitation at Washburn-McReavy Edina Chapel on Thursday, Feb. 6 from 5-7 PM.
