Marshall, 84, died December 23 of natural causes. He was born October 21st, 1936 at Evanston hospital to Marshall Squier Sr. and Alma Benning Squier. The family moved to Elmhurst when he was young. He attended Immaculate Conception grade and high school where he played basketball and was his team’s high scorer his senior year. Marshall briefly attended Loras College and transferred to Marquette University where he received a business degree.
After a short career selling insurance, Marshall joined his father and brother at Robert L. Berner Company, a produce and mixed nut packager. Together they helped the company transform and grow. He oversaw the construction of a new plant in Lemont and stayed on after the company was sold to Sun Diamond Growers of California.
Marshall was an avid golfer, starting at a young age, and was known to tee off before daylight, play a full round, and be at work by 8am. After retirement, his goal was to play 300 rounds a year, which he often achieved. He had many golfing buddies that he loved to joke around with, wager bets with, and celebrate with on the 19th hole. He was a great father and grandfather, influencing and assisting all of his family their entire life. He was a generous man that supported many causes.
Marshall’s eldest sister Ann Gough passed away earlier this year. He is survived by his daughter Sue Lubben (Tom) of Elmhurst and their daughter Emma; his son Peter (Kimberlie) of Austin, Texas and their children Jillian, Katherine, Jack and Mark; and his brother Edward (Linda) Squier of Oak Brook and their children Andy (Joy), Danny, and the late Marybeth.
In lieu of a service, there will be a Zoom Memorial the week of January 4th. Information will be posted to his Memorial website, which you are encouraged to visit, at www.MarshallSquier.com.
