Kerry Marshall passes

Postby Russ_Byth » Mon Aug 26, 2019 6:44 am

This will come as a shock to those who didn't know he was sick. Veteran Vancouver broadcaster Kerry Marshall has passed away after a brief battle with cancer. I had the pleasure of working in the same building with this gentleman when he, along with Larry and Willie moved to Ash St.
Those who knew him better will have more to say, but my thoughts are with his family at this very difficult time.
Rest In Peace Kerry.

Sad news indeed. Another one gone way too soon.

Here's a pic of Kerry at the April 2019 RPM Lunch.

R.I.P. Kerry

Although I didn't know Kerry well - I loved him on the air, and he was such a lovely fellow. We would visit at the RPM get togethers and it was great. Ted Wendland and I were chatting with him at the last one...and now he's gone. Condolences to PATTI, his Family and his many friends. This hurts. He left us far too young.

Thanks for the pix, RF.

Kerry was liked and respected by the youngsters in the business who knew him. At least, the ones who've talked to me.

Being aged and decrepit, my mind is withering away, but wasn't Kerry one of the people stuck doing that "U's News" parody newscast that lasted for about a month on the Vancouver Show on CKVU? Or was it Doc?
