MARSHALL, James Lawrence (B.Eng., M.Eng.) Passed away peacefully on October 10, 2005 in Bedford, Nova Scotia at age 92. Lawrence was predeceased by his wife Sidonie Edith Robins (and his sister Irene Marshall of Winnipeg). He is lovingly remembered by his children Brian (Janet) of Toronto, Robin (Kathy) of Coldbrook and Susan (Shawn Moore) of Waverley; his grandchildren Lara, James and Heidi and five great-grandchildren. His kind, gentle and caring manner is a great loss to his family and friends. Lawrence was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation shortly after graduating from the University of Manitoba. He oversaw the construction of radio station CBK in Watrous, Sask., became the station manager, and to his everlasting delight met and married his lifelong partner Sidonie. During WWII he served in the Canadian Army as a Captain (Hon.) with the Canadian War Correspondents in England, Holland and Germany. Lawrence worked his entire career with the CBC retiring as Managing Engineer, Transmission Systems, in Montreal. He actively participated in the establishment of all new CBC radio stations after WWII and the introduction of television broadcasting for the CBC across Canada. He contributed his knowledge and skill to the creation of new radio broadcast networks for Nigeria, Ghana and the West Indies through a joint Government of Canada and United Nations initiative. Lawrence authored a book, "Lightning Protection", held several patents and represented Canada on global broadcast standard committees. He served many years as a member of the Parish Council for St. Georges Anglican Church, Ste. Anne de Bellevue, and the Town Council of Baie d'Urfe, Quebec. After retiring to Ottawa, Lawrence and Sid enjoyed part of each summer visiting Robin, Susan and their families in Nova Scotia and spent many weekends traveling to "the Marshall Farm" in Prince Edward County with Brian's family. Lawrence was a supportive father offering encouragement, advice and had active participation in his children's interests.
