Peter R. Marshall, 56, of Andover, CT, passed away on December 26th, 2021 at home, wrapped in the intense love of his family. Peter attended Windham High School, University of Rhode Island and WPI.
He worked as an Engineer at Parsons in Charlotte, and Brinjac Kambic in Harrisburg before changing careers and joining Conning, an investment portfolio management company in Hartford. Peter’s prominent role in his 18 years at Conning was as Director of Risk Management and compliance.
Peter was most proud of attaining his goal of running all 169 towns in CT, including the Hartford Marathon. He was a member of the Run 169 Town Society, whose members surrounded him with support to finish his last race in November 2019 and crowned him “King Peter”.
Loving the water, Peter was a member of the Columbia canoe club and an avid kayaker, wind surfer and swimmer. Peter’s favorite place was the beach. He loved traveling, dancing, golf and was a handyman extraordinaire, able to design, build and fix anything. Peter was a gentle, gracious man who lived to help others.
