Services for George N. Marshall Sr., a former huckster and painter, will be held at 2 p.m. tomorrow at St. Paul's Church , 5010 St. Pauls Road in Millers.

Mr. Marshall died Tuesday when he was electrocuted while preparing to paint the exterior of an apartment house in North Baltimore. He was 55 and lived in Millers.

Since the early 1990s, he had been a painter for Wertz Painting Contractors Co. in Hamilton.

For 33 years, until he retired in 1991, Mr. Miller operated a huckster business that was founded by his grandfather in the early 1920s. From a van, he sold fresh eggs and produce, sausage and turkeys to customers in Roland Park and Baltimore County.

He grew many of the vegetables on his 17-acre farm in Millers, where he was born and raised. He was a 1961 graduate of Hereford High School and served in the Army Reserve from 1963 to 1969.

He was an active member of St. Paul's Church, where he was a member of the cemetery board and former treasurer and member of the pastor-parish committee.

He is survived by his wife of 31 years, the former Doris V. Wilhelm; a son, George N. Marshall Jr. of Hampstead; a daughter, Beth V. Rogers of Overlea; his mother, Frauline S. Marshall of Millers; and a sister, Ruth Y. Dillow of Millers; and three grandchildren.

He operated a clinical laboratory in San Diego in 1946. In 1948, he returned to Baltimore, where he established a laboratory on North Calvert Street and, later, on St. Paul Street. He retired in 1989.

Mr. Santora was an avid golfer and enjoyed traveling, classical music and opera. He was remembered by friends and relatives for his adventurous spirit and generosity.

Santora Jr. of Columbia; five daughters, JoAnne Cary and Barbara Berry, both of Timonium, Mary Louise Carney of Baldwin, Patricia Santora of Baltimore and Christine Dove of White Marsh; 14 grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.
