Upon leaving school, Marshall kept busy working in many capacities; here are just a few: HRSD (Hampton Roads Sanitation District), VA Beach; K& W Cafeteria, Norfolk,VA;  New Bethlehem Church of Christ (Disciples of Christ), Norfolk, VA; Penrod, Jurden & Clark; Norfolk, VA; Petro Gas; Norfolk, VA; Portsmouth Naval Yard; Portsmouth, VA; The Smokehouse; VA Beach, VA; Tires R US; Norfolk, VA; and Tyrone’s Construction & Demolition Services; Norfolk, VA.

Although Marshall worked at several places, his most important undertaking was as a member of the New Bethlehem Church. It was said that he joined this house of Zion about 25 years ago. In his tenure there he “Decided to Make Jesus his Choice”. Under the leadership of his Pastor Rev. Dr. Cynthia Buck, Marshall attended Advent Bible Study, sung with the Male Chorus, attended the North Albemarle Union Meetings (NC), sung with the Senior Choir, attended the Sunday School Convention, he was a Trustee of the Washington, NC District Assembly, and a Youth Chaperone.

“Pete” got his early church training at the Smyrna Church of Christ Holy Disciples (Norfolk) under the pastorship of the late Bishop Estelle Hodges.

Marshall was preceded in death by his parents, John Marshall and Dorothy Lee Hinton-Snowden; paternal grandparents Jessie Lee and Alice Gilliam Hinton; maternal grandparents Willie Oliver & Maggie Lucille Evans; son, Jamar Williams; great-grandson Se'von Bennett; sister Marsha Anne Forbes and brother Joe Willie Evans.

Left to cherish his memories, three daughters; Felicia Stark (Toris) of Elizabeth City, NC, Phyllis Bowman of Norfolk and Lisa Granger-Mullins (Joseph) of Chester, VA; four sons; Marshall Hill of Texas, Marshall Randall of VA Beach; Marcus Bowman and Joshua Williams both of Norfolk; 7 grandsons, 10 grand-daughters, and 6 great-grand children; 3 sisters, Gail Unuigbe (Felix) of Norfolk, Carol Lilly (Sidney) of VA Beach, Donnita Wyatt of Portsmouth; 2 brothers, Jessie Hinton and William Snowden both of Norfolk. Several aunts, great-aunts/great-uncles and cousins. 

“Pete” loved his family in his own way. He loved sports, card games, crabbing, cooking and most importantly, he loved to EAT!

To Marshall (Pete's) Hinton's Family,
I'm Alice (Little Lucille), Pete's cousin in York, Maine.
It's been a while since I last saw Pete but I always remember to ask about him when I'm often in touch with Duke.
I've always been proud of Pete because he followed his own path in life and accepted the outcomes of his
decisions. Most outcomes were rewarding. And although Pete and I were distant in miles, he was always in my heart and mind. I shall miss you, Pete but your spirit will always be with me. Peace be with you.
Love, Your Cousin, Alice

My fondest memory is sitting at the table with you and talking about our grandbabies. Lisa and Joe were at work and you were expressing to me how proud you were of the kids. They gave you a home, a comfy bed to sleep in, so much love. How proud he was to have a family that took care of him . Romeo gave him such love and laughter that little dog kept him busy. He missed being a better father, so much he could have did better in his life. But he had such love for everyone. He enjoyed the warm breeze, sun shining on him on a summer day. Memories is what he left us, he left what he could with the time he had left. And oh, how he got to enjoy grandbabies. And hold a baby that danced with him to his music. Heaven has him but he left so much love here for us. God bless you Marshall for the memories.

Marshall, You left behind a huge hole in the family. My lovely Lisa's father chooses Heavenly home before this Christmas. You left behind so many smiles, laughs, hugs. I had the honor of holding your hand while you were leaving this world for God's home. Send us your light to heal the troubled hearts of the family. Bless you always for sharing your life with us. The Mullins Family

Im so sorry for your loss. Praying the God of all comfort helps you at this difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4 & Psalms 83:18). Jesus told us to pray for Gods Kingdom because the Bible promises it will end tears pain and death. (Revelation 21:3-5 & Daniel 2:44).
