Marshall Frank Field, 56, passed away unexpectedly Friday, April 26, 2013, at his home in Tenants Harbor.

Born in Rockland Jan. 15, 1957 at Knox County General Hospital, Marshall spent his first years on Mohegan Island. He moved to Tenants Harbor with his family in the early '60s where he lived his entire life. Marshall went to local schools and worked odd jobs for many people in town. He helped St. George businessmen such as Skinny Morris, True Hall and Frank Meservey. Marshall baited bags for area lobster fishermen and was known unofficially as one of the best in town. He was a quiet person and it was important to him to always do a good job.

Marshall rode a bike and picked up returnable bottles from the roadside. In recent years, he would often be seen driving between jobs on his riding lawnmower and would return your wave with a friendly “toot–toot” with his mower mounted air horn. He and his neighbors, George and Irene Rizkalla, were good friends and helped one another. He enjoyed having all meat pizza dinners with the Rizkalla’s on occasion and they relied on his trusted friendship to watch and care for their home. “So many liked Marshall so much and he never knew it.” He was a special man who is already missed.

He was predeceased by parents John and Irene Field; brother Jay Field; half-brother Paul Wallace; and uncle Donald Field.

He is survived by brothers Brian Field of South Portland/Tenants Harbor and John Field of Union; sister Julia Field of Lewiston and half-sister Diane Randall of Waldoboro; several nieces and nephews and good friends George and Irene Rizkalla.

A graveside committal service for Marshall will be held Thursday, May 9, at 1 p.m. at Seaside Cemetery. Rev. William Hickey will officiate. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the St. George Volunteer Firefighters Association at 3 School St., P.O. Box 249, Tenants Harbor, ME 04860.
