Marshall “Mark” Cambron Obituary

Marshall Curtis Cambron (“Mark”), 91, of Fultondale, Alabama, died at home on February 24, 2024. He was born in Huntsville, Alabama on May 27, 1932 to Marshall C. Cambron, Sr. and Mattie Lou Reinhardt Sanders (Bill Sanders). Mark lived in Oak Ridge, TN with his parents who worked on the Manhattan Project during WWII.  Mark’s first job was at 9 yrs. old shining shoes for the employees in Oak Ridge.  He graduated from Phillips High School then served his country in the U.S. Army as a Radio Operator in Japan during the Korean War. He was Honorably Discharged from the Army where he went on to study Engineering at the University of Alabama, Class of 1959.   Mark was an entrepreneur where his first business was selling soap across the United States to earn money to help pay for his college education.  He lived and traveled many places throughout his adventures, including Vail, CO where he opened the first Burger King.  Over the years, Mark owned and ran several successful businesses in and around Birmingham, Alabama.  His longest and most successful business was Filter Services in Birmingham, AL.  He continued this business until he sold it in 2022.   Mark was a member of a variety of clubs such as the Flora Bama Riders Motorcycle Club, Birmingham Swing Dancers Club, Birmingham Ski Club, and the American Legion Post 255, to name a few.  He was happiest outside riding his motorcycle but was very active throughout his life from scuba diving, snow skiing, water skiing, and travelled extensively.  He lived life to the fullest and encouraged others to do the same and had many stories of his life to tell.    Mark was preceded in death by his parents, Mattie Lou & Bill Sanders.  He is survived by his honey, Janetta Cambron; his daughter, Debbie Brooks (Wade) of Fort Mill, SC; and his son, David Randolph, Jr. (Tina) of St. Albans, WV. He was the proudest of his family and took great pride in being the best Papaw to his grandchildren – Savanah Randolph Dolly (Nick), Jacob Brooks (Army), Madison Randolph, Caleb Brooks, Madison Leftridge (Zach), Andrew Workman (Mady), TJ Workman (Thursday) and 3 great-grandchildren Elias, Hazel, and Piper.   He is also survived by a host of extended family and friends whom he loved.  Proverbs 18:24 says a man who has friends must show himself friendly and it was obvious that Mark understood this verse well.  A visitation for the gathering of family and friends to celebrate his life will be held at Walker Chapel Funeral Home on February 27, 2024, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at 1200 Ellard Road, Fultondale, AL.  Burial will take place at the Alabama National Cemetery on February 28, 2024, at 11:00 a.m. located at 3133 Hwy. 119, Montevallo, AL. Donations to Fultondale Senior Center in Honor of Mark Cambron would be greatly appreciated.
