"Willard lives in a grand old home on a large, gorgeous tree-studded property in rural Rockleigh.... According to Sal Yvars, a former teammate of Marshall's, Willard's previous home in Fort Lee, NJ was built on a hill and had a clear and spectacular view of the city of New York from his back yard."
