We’re just learning of the recent passing of a former member of the MP Branch.
Sgt (Ret’d) Kim Marshall, a 30-year veteran of the Canadian Forces who retired in 2003, passed away recently after a long illness. During his career, Kim served at a variety of locations, including 2 MP PL Petawawa, as well as the Ottawa SIU Section in 1990, and CFB Winnipeg where he retired.
The obituary, provided to CMPA by a friend of Kim’s, reads as follows:
To all of you who know and love Kim, it is with deep sadness that I post this message. Our beloved Kim passed yesterday evening at home. With his family surrounding him Kim took his last breath and peacefully slipped away.
Kim fought long and hard these past 10 months overcoming incredible obstacles with grace and humour and a warrior’s spirit. Kim lived the code of Bushido to the end. In every sense a true warrior, Kim was the embodiment of bushido values: Loyalty, courage, honesty, compassion, honour and a profound respect for life. He faced death calmly and with courage.
A service was held for Sgt(Ret'd) Marshall on 8 October 2016 at St. Luke's Aglican Church in Winnipeg.
