Marsh was born in New Jersey and lived in New York until his early teens when he moved to Vancouver with his mother and sister. He went to school in Vancouver where he majored in baseball, soccer and basketball. His wife Pat and he met in their final year at Magee High School and four years later were married. They lived in West Vancouver for thirty years before moving to the Cowichan Valley in 1984. Marsh’s working years were spent in sales, advertising and marketing of radio, television and in print. In his retirement Marsh volunteered with Crimestoppers where he was president and was also one of the original members of The Duncan Probus Club where he was president twice. Pat and Marsh were married for sixty five years, traveled to many places in the world but would always return to their beloved second home in Maui.
Marsh is survived by his wife Pat, daughter Nancy Mortifee (Peter), sons Stephen and John, five grandchildren, two great grandchildren, plus extended families. Marsh was a man of high integrity, with a wonderful sense of humour, a loving husband, father, grandfather and good friend to many. We will all miss him.
It was Marsh’s wish that there be no formal service.
