Gerry's Story

CORINNA - Gerry Marshall, 69, died unexpectedly October 1, 2015 at his camp on Lake Wassokeag in Dexter. He was born May 20, 1946 in Bangor, a son of Frederick and Althea (Adams) Marshall.

He graduated from East Corinth Academy, Class of 1964. He married Barbara Wyman of Dexter on November 7, 1964. He was a loving father and grandfather who always put his family first, which also included his employees and friends.

Gerry was a self-employed entrepreneur all of his life. He raised his family on a chicken farm for 20 years where they all learned the value of hard work. Over the years he owned and operated many businesses in the area. He established Gerry's Used Cars in 1990 and currently there are 4 locations all operated by family members. This is the legacy he was most proud of. He was a member of the Masons, the Shrine, and the Dexter Club. He was an avid golfer and snowmobiler, but especially enjoyed travelling with his wife and going to the grandchildren's sporting events. Every noon he could be seen at area restaurants engaging in one of his favorite past times, teasing the waitresses. His free time was spent at the lake, his favorite place, enjoying the sunsets, family and friends.
