Marshall Lynn Sartin, RPLS #3694, 68, passed away on Monday, December 18, 2017, at Wilson N. Jones Regional Hospital in Sherman. Marshall was born on Sunday, January 2, 1949 in McKinney, to parents Jesse Eugene (Gene) Sartin and Dennie Mae Kinnamon. He was raised in McKinney and made a profession of faith as a teenager at Waddill Street Baptist Church in McKinney. He graduated from McKinney High School in 1967, where he played Cornet in the band and served as Drum Major with the Marching Band.  After graduating from high school, Marshall attended Grayson College in Denison, and Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.

Marshall began his work in the land surveying industry in 1971. In 1980 he established Sartin and Associates Survey, Inc., in Sherman and had remained actively involved in the business until the time of his death.

He was an accomplished pianist and loved all types of music. Marshall enjoyed riding in his truck, sitting on his patio listening to music, reading, and most especially playing with his three beloved puppies: Toby, Bella, and Beck.  His weekends and leisure time were planned around area trade days, as well as gun and knife shows.

Marshall is survived by his son Jesse of Pottsboro, grandson Trey Sartin, granddaughter Alee Breedlove, sister Helen (Scalf) Herod of McKinney, nephews Durwood Scalf and wife Gayla of McKinney, Gary Langford and wife Staci of The Woodlands, niece Cyndi Spencer and husband Rick of Sherman. He was preceded in death by his parents and sister Wanda (Langford) Fleming.

Marshall never met a stranger and had a host of friends and relatives who will miss him greatly.  But we all rejoice in knowing his battle is over and that he is in the presence of his Savior.

Memorials may be made in Marshall's name to the City of Sherman Animal Services, Dept. 123, P.O. Box 1106, Sherman, Texas 75091.
