Charles began his educational journey at Aurora Seventh Day Adventist Christian School later transitioning into the Montbello School District.  In his later years, Charles attended Rangeview High School, ultimately obtaining his GED in 1995.  Reflective of his many interests, Charles pursued higher education at Oakwood College in Huntsville, AL and here in Colorado he attended both the Community College of Denver and the Art Institute.

After college, Charles worked in customer service for 10 plus years before deciding to venture out and pursue his artistic endeavors.  Charles expressed his artistic talent in various mediums including writing, drawing, furniture restoration and rapping.

Charles met Tumiesha Phillips in high school and the two became friends.  Eventually, the friendship evolved into love.  The two joined in holy matrimony on April 20, 2000.  They welcomed their beautiful baby girl, Shanyah Lena Marshall on January 17, 1999.  Although the relationship did not continue, they remained close friends and worked together to co-parent Shanyah.  On October 27, 2005, Charles welcomed his second child, Charles Edward Marshall III into the world.  Little Chuck was a blessing to his father.

Charles loved people and was at his happiest when surrounded by his family and friends.  Charles could always be counted on for a good laugh and an easy smile.  Charles’ laugh was one of his family and friend’s favorite things to hear.

Charles was adventurous and was always willing to step out and try new things.  Known for his storytelling, he loved to regale his friends and family with stories about his latest adventure.  Charles will be remembered for his fun-loving spirit, wit and loyalty to his family and friends.

  11. To the Family and Friends of : Charles Edward Marshall

    Please allow me to express my condolences for the loss of your dear loved one. The pain and sorrow experienced during this difficult time can be overwhelming. However, I am often comforted by the words found in God’s word, the Bible. For instance, when grieving the loss of his dear friend Lazarus, the Bible reports that “Jesus gave way to tears.” (John 11:35). What is even more comforting is the fact that Jesus resurrected Lazarus from the dead, and so like Mary and Martha, Lazarus’ sisters, the Bible expresses the hope of the resurrection whereby we may see our loved ones again. (Read John 11:38-44; 5:28, 29). What a marvelous hope.

    May Jehovah God grant you peace during this time and provide comfort for you and your loved ones.

  12. Our hearts ache with the Marshall family. You have been friends/family with us for years. Words cannot begin to sooth, but they can show you that we love you and are praying for you. I know that GOD heals and GOD helps us to move forward, not as if this moment did not happen, but because it did. GOD is present in our times of mourning, in our grief, very familiar with our pain. May you feel GOD’s presence and love in new ways. May it strengthen you in moments that you are weak. May it lift you when you are down. Please don’t hesitate to call us if you need anything. We love you!

    In love,

    Pastor Vernon and Mrs. Jaymie Jones

  13. My condolences to the family. Thank you for making my heart smile. Your kids will always have a friend in me. Love you forever, Sir Charles.
