Marsh was a member of Skiff Lake Bible Church where, in his earlier years, enjoyed singing in the choir.  He also loved riding his bike with his wife on Falling Waters Trail. Marsh was the ultimate handyman who could build or fix just about anything! In his retirement he found joy in his woodworking shop, fashioning elaborate toys for his grandchildren. He also turned out beautiful quilt racks, hand mirrors, pens, pepper mills and Swedish dala horses. Marsh often referred to himself as the World’s Largest Elf! He was a kind and gentle man who was loved by all who knew him.No funeral service will be held per Marsh’s wishes. Instead an outdoor celebration of his life will be held at a future date in the spring.  In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to Skiff Lake Bible Church.
