Marshall Gilliam Abrams
May 23, 1988

“I know there’s a God above.
He’s looking down on us with love.
Near to us when we are broken hearted.
But that doesn’t mean things won’t be hard.
It’s ok to feel the dark,
But through the hurt I’ll still sing…HALLELUJAH.”
(Adapted lyric by Ben Kimsal)

Our son, our brother, and a portion of our hearts passed on April 11, 2020.
In Marshall’s life, he travelled the entire country and crossed continents, but we cherish most the times he was near us. The scope of lives that flowed through his are innumerable. He was our navigator, and now we must find our way without him. As we do so, we will remember what he taught us: be brave enough to reach for the unknown and kind enough to speak to the stranger.
He is survived by parents, Lee and Dot; siblings, Chelsey, Lindy, Holden, and Whitney; nieces and nephews he lovingly called “Hooligans”, Charlea, Lyza, Ryan, Sadie Rose and Waylon; his love, Christy Marie; grandfather, Howard Wilbur Hodge; many loving aunts, uncles and cousins; and his entire Chobani Family. Oh and of course, Lani and Mittens.
He is preceded in death by grandparents, Robert and Elva Abrams, and Frennilee Hodge.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to the Marshall “Mersh” Abrams Memorial Fund with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

Marshall changed many people and many things before he took his hands away. Ray Bradbury’s words are far more sufficient than my own: “Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said.
A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made.
Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die,
and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you’re there. It doesn’t matter what you do,
he said, so as long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into
something that’s like you after you take your hands away.”
