MARSHALL, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Marshall community continues to remember the life of the man called “Mr. Marshall” who passed away earlier this week.
A funeral service Saturday for Harold Dominick Jr. brought people from the Marshall area out to celebrate Dominick in the same way he celebrated his beloved local teams.
Dominick’s love for the Marshall Lions led to him becoming an assistant manager at the school working with several teams over the years.
Those in attendance at the funeral say they will remember Dominick not only as a loyal Lions fan, but also as a good soul with a memorable personality.
His family says the funeral was the perfect way to celebrate him.
“It’s Harold. Not everybody would have a funeral with a band and cheerleaders singing the fight song but that just shows the type of person he was and what it meant to him and to the community and they’re just showing their appreciation in a way that other people may not understand but if you know Harold then you would completely understand what they’re doing and we embraced it completely,” said Dominick’s brother-in-law Brian Glover.
Dominick passed away Wednesday at the age of 51.
