Marshall had an astounding career, filled with success. Marshall got his start as a joke writer for comedians, later leading him to writing on “The Tonight Show,” and “The Dick Van Dyke Show.”

Writing for comedy became his life. Marshall co-created and produced television gems like “The Odd Couple,” “Happy Days,” “Mork & Mindy,” and “Laverne & Shirley.”

This is the man who gave us “Overboard” with Goldie Hawn and “Beaches.” In the 90s, he gave us the shining jewel that is Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman,” “Frankie & Johnny,” “The Other Sister,” “Runaway Bride,” and “Exit Eden.”

Marshall directed “Princess Diaries 1 ¬†& 2” people! And “Raising Helen” with Kate Hudson, and “Georgia Rule” starring Lindsey Lohan and Jane Fonda.

This man made feel-good films, for the young and the old.

Rest in peace, Gary Marshall.
