Billy “Darrell” Marshall, 59, of Monroe, passed away on Saturday, Feb. 19, 2022, surrounded by his family.

After a long, hard-fought battle, he slipped away peacefully and met his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ face to face.

A celebration of life will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 5, at Athens Church, 10 Huntington Road, Athens.

He was a custom home, multifamily home and developer for many years and owned his own company. He was an avid Georgia Bulldogs fan and loved being outdoors playing golf and watching sunsets. He loved to barbecue, hence he was given the nickname of “Smokey D.”
