Marshall Caldwell, of Covington, passed away Wednesday, August 26, 2020, at the age of 83. Mr. Caldwell honorably served his country for four years as a soldier in the United States Army Reserve. He spent his earlier days growing up in the city of Fairburn, GA, until his family moved and put down roots in the Covington community. As a sophomore at Newton County High School, he met his future wife, Janice, and they married soon after graduating. For 64 years, Mr. Caldwell immersed himself in his church life at Zion Baptist. He was an active member of both the Young at Heart Group and the Outreachers Sunday School class. Mr. Caldwell spent his free time in a variety of ways; he was a member of the United Autoworkers Union, a camping enthusiast, and a woodworking craftsman - a creative outlet that yielded beautiful pieces of furniture. He was also known for his love of yard work and a propensity for keeping his cars in pristine condition. In addition to being a caring husband, father, and grandfather, Mr. Caldwell was a generous soul who had a quick wit and an easygoing demeanor. He was preceded in death by his parents, John D. and Ruth (Hardy) Caldwell; brother, James Caldwell; and nephew, Scot Caldwell.
