Bench unveiled for Lynn Marshall longtime media, entertainment director

WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - A bench was unveiled in downtown Wichita Falls on Thursday to honor the late Lynn Marshall.

Marshall was an icon in the city's theater and broadcasting community.

Family members, friends and former co-workers of Marshall shared words about him during the unveiling.

"He was a friend to so many people in the theater community and touched many, many lives," Beau Dameron, a friend, and former co-worker said. "Both the Backdoor Theater and the Wichita Theater would not be what they are today if it weren't for all the contributions that he made."

Marshall worked in the media since the mid-70s and did programming for radio stations along with work at television stations.

His voice became a staple in the Texoma community because of his work in television commercials. The bench is located next to the Wichita Theater on the 10th and Indiana Ave.
