Marshall Luca Vogler, 13, of Mesa, Arizona, left us on Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2020. He was born in Phoenix on May 23, 2007, to Faith (Greer) and Spencer Vogler.
Marshall was an 8th grader at Heritage Academy where he enjoyed Kenpo and science. He earned a First Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo. At age six Marshall declared that he would get his black belt, and by age 10 he succeeded. He also had a yellow belt in Kenpo. Being an avid fan of the martial arts, Marshall could not pass up the opportunity to participate in them. He welcomed the chance to earn another black belt in a different martial art.
Marshall participated in the Herpetology Club at school. He joined the club to help him overcome his fear of snakes and other reptiles. He would come home from school on those days bubbling with excitement, sharing videos and pictures of the different reptiles he had been able to touch and hold.
Marshall was a member of Boy Scout for two years, attaining the rank of Tenderfoot.
Marshall loved being outdoors and was an avid fisherman, keeping track of every single fish he caught and then released; he caught over 100 fish in his lifetime. He had a passion for rocks, video games and reading. Marshall had an affinity for quartz, but that did not stop him from admiring and collecting all types of rocks and geodes. Marshall was known for playing Minecraft and Fortnite with his friends. He also enjoyed Halo with his dad and brother.
He savored several book series including Fablehaven, Beyonders and Ranger’s Apprentice, often enticing his mom to read them as well.
Marshall is survived by his parents, Faith (Greer) and Spencer Vogler; his brother, Conner Vogler, Mesa, AZ; his aunt, Cristin (Greer) Vinson, wife of Allen Vinson, Oakwood, GA; cousins Pearl Vinson and Sebastigan Vinson, Oakwood, GA.
He is also survived by his grandparents, Ram Khalsa, Gisela, AZ, Sally Fulton, Scottsdale, AZ, and Katie (Greer) McAllister, wife of Kent McAllister, Campbellsville, KY, as well as his Great Aunt Carol (Vogler) Swanson, Lincoln, NE.
