    I’ve know Marshall for 55yrs, but I hadn’t seen him for a long time. We ran into each other 4 yrs ago when he moved Pompano Beach. He taught me how to play golf (his true love). I’ll miss him very much. Janet Maddox

    Marshall was like family to us – a fixture in our lives for many years. We will miss Marshall’s daily calls and the play-by-play of his golf escapades. We will miss the stories of his childhood – especially his grade school poem about how his name “Glasshoffer” was something special he had to offer! We will miss calls and unique gifts from “Uncle Marsh-Man” – no one cared for and gifted 1980’s sunglasses cases like he did! We will miss him on all the Jewish holidays and all of the family milestones. Marshall, you will be there in spirit and we will set a place at the table for you. We will miss you dearly.

    With love and affection,
    Susan & Dunyelle, Armen & Stone

    “MG” & I had many good times together on the golf course, at the beach & going out to dinner. He loved the simple things in life & always made things interesting & always had a way to make me smile.
    I will miss you “MARSH” and THANK YOU for the memories!

    Eye m Marshall’s friend from Boston in the 1970s. He and eye hooked up a couple years ago in Fla. He meant a lot to me. Personally, he brought me back to the optical industry after my divorces and kept me focused. Eye truly miss him, didn’t know he had passed. Right now crying that we all lost a great man, friend, and rep. We always enjoyed getting high together. May he Rest In Peace Forever. You’re still here with me my Bud. Catch ya in another world eye m sure. Love ya Bro.
