PITTSBURGH — The U.S. scrap sector has lost an industry veteran as Marshall Marc Glick, 64, died June 9 following a two-decade-long battle with cancer.

Glick, a co-owner of Texarkana, Ark.-based Tri-State Iron & Metal Co., joined the family business in 1973 and was an integral part of the company’s exponential growth, Howard Glick, Tri-State president and Marshall’s brother, told AMM.

"Marshall loved to build and oversaw all the construction projects we did, including the installation of our shredder in 2006," Howard Glick said.

The two brothers worked side by side after Howard joined the company in 1976. "I have suffered three losses: my business partner, my brother and my best friend. We worked well together and complemented each other," he said.

Marshall also oversaw the ferrous part of the recycling business that services a four-state area. He worked until March 2012, when he created an exit plan and began to work on a part-time basis. Marshall was diagnosed with cancer in 1992.

Another aspect that made Marshall a success was his concern for everyone, those close to him said. "He always had five minutes for anybody. He didn’t really care about someone’s station in life; he really cared about a person and treated a (chief executive officer) the same as a load scrap customer," Howard Glick said.

Marshall knew the name of every one of the company’s 80 employees. "Marshall’s greatest pride was the livelihood he provided for our employees and knew them all. He never liked to talk about himself but liked to hear about the other person," Howard said.

Marshall is survived by his wife, Marilyn; his mother, Betty Glick; his brother, Howard, and his wife, Barbara; his sister, Marilyn Glosserman, and her husband, Michael; and 12 nieces and nephews.
