Life Story for Robert "Bob" Marsh, Sr.

Robert "Bob" Marsh, Sr.
Robert Lyon Marsh Sr., known as “Bob” by many, went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on December 1, 2017 at the Riverstone Hospice House in Billings, Montana. Bob was born on June 21, 1923 in Plainfield, New Jersey to Albert Marsh and Marian Charlotte Lyon. Marian died in 1924 after giving birth to Bob’s sister Marian. Albert hired Mary Elizabeth Crater (Nana) to help care for the children along with her own child, Ruth. They eventually married and had Alberta Jean.
Bob was preceded in death by his parents, his sister Ruth, and his wife of 70 years, Anna Mae Weaver. He leaves behind his sisters Marian and Alberta Jean; three children: Kaaren Wylie (Ken deceased), Nancy Canepa (Doug), Robert Marsh Jr. (Deb Rykken); nine grandchildren: Christy, Julie (Dave), Stephen (Krissy), Laurie (Kurt), David (Pasha), Bryan (Erin), Darren (Ann Marie), Justin, Kelly (Alex); and fourteen great grandchildren.
Bob’s favorite memories growing up were going to Ocean Grove, New Jersey where Grandma Marsh owned a boarding house. He loved the boardwalk and beach and fishing and crabbing with cousins.
Bob had a lot of interest in sports from early on. His small size kept him from playing high school football, but he became an accomplished runner-always ran everywhere-never walked!
Bob was inducted into the Air Force in 1943-45. He received his “wings” and also the top physical fitness award in a class of over 250 cadets; his son would later receive the same award from the Air Force Academy. He met Anna Mae Weaver at Wichita State University. They married in October, 1944 and were blessed with three children. After the war, Bob graduated from Colorado School of Mines and pursued a career as a geologist followed by a ten-year stint as an Earth Science teacher and cross-country coach at Lincoln Junior High School in Billings.
The entire direction and focus of his life changed after going “forward” at a Billy Graham Crusade in Houston, Texas. For the rest of his life his priorities were: seeking and following God’s will, leading his family, making Christ known through sharing his personal testimony, and playing golf-how he loved that game! He was also involved in the YMCA, Young Life, his church, and supported the 700 Club.
Bob will be missed for his fervent prayers; his sense of humor and justice; and his abiding love of God’s Word.
A Celebration of life will be held Saturday, January 6, at 2pm at Faith Evangelical Church.
The family wishes to thank the staff at the Hospice House for their wonderful care.
