Royal Marshall was only 43 years old. He leaves behind a wife and two daughters Amira (4) and Ava (2). For regular listeners of the Neal Boortz show you are very familiar with Royal. He was often the voice of reason and probably the only person who could call Neal on the carpet and get by with it.
The flagship station of the Neal Boortz show, WSB, will be hosting a tribute to Royal this morning at 8:30 AM EST. I honestly don't know how Neal, whom I am assuming will be a part of this since this is the start of his regular time slot, will be able to make it through this difficult time. Besides Royal, the other producer of the show is Belinda Skelton, and if you heard them on air you knew they were Royal's second family. It certainly won't be the same without his voice in the background.
Royal you will be missed and your passing is leaving a void that I don't think will ever be filled completely. Please pray for his family and keep his young daughters in your thoughts.
