David Marshall, MSc, 1999 (died aged 56)

Extract from obituary in the Belfast Telegraph

David Marshall (56) passed away surrounded by his family in June in his Ballyhackamore home in east Belfast - six weeks after receiving a terminal cancer diagnosis.

In 2015, Queen's awarded Mr Marshall - a senior lecturer with the school of Nursing and Midwifery and a Queen's graduate - with a most inspiring/motivating teacher award after being nominated by his students.

Since his diagnosis, he remained determined to enjoy time with his family, including a recent trip to see a show in London's West End.

Donna Fitzsimons, head of Nursing and Midwifery at Queen's, said staff and students were "deeply saddened" by the loss. "He had a unique passion and drive for his topic that was very inspirational," she said.

David is survived by his wife May and children Catherine, Jenny, Anna and David.
