His father was of Italian descent, his family having come from Abruzzo, and his mother was of English and Scottish descent; His father changed his last name from "Masciarelli" to "Marshall" before Garry was born. Marshall was baptized Presbyterian and also raised in the Lutheran religion for a time.
