In honor of his more than 50 years of service to the school and to the Fulton community, Westminster College will be hosting a memorial service for the late John "Jack" Marshall on Jan. 14.

The service will start at 2 p.m. at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury on the Westminster campus.

"The church will be open an hour before the service," said Rob Crouse, director of college relations. "Our alternative plan is to stream the service in Champ Auditorium so people who want to come pay their respects to Jack shouldn't worry about there not being room."

Marhsall's brothers, Dick and David - both also Westminster alumni - will speak, as well as Westminster President Barney Forsythe. Westminster Chaplain Jamie Haskins will preside over the service, with the help of Chaplain Emeritus Bill Young. Natasia Cain, an assistant professor of music, will be the soloist.
