Candlelight vigil honours third anniversary of missing Lethbridge man, Marshall Iwaasa

It was a somber day for the family and friends of Marshall Iwaasa.

The search for the missing man has entered year three with still no answers into what happened to the then 26-year-old.

On Friday, November 18, 2022, dozens of community members gathered at the Legacy Park Pavilion to host a candlelight vigil for Iwaasa.

His mother, Tammy Johnson, addressed the crowd by thanking everyone for their continued support and sympathy over the past few years of uncertainty.

“Personally, I dread November,” said Johnson. “It’s hard to describe how it feels. Lots of times, you don’t feel like it can really be happening and the heartbreak of not knowing where Marshall is; is overwhelming.”

She went on, “I just can’t believe this has happened. I can’t believe it’s been three years and we still don’t know much. We have more questions than answers unfortunately, and so that’s very hard to come to terms with.”
