MARSH, Ronald L., age 81, born September 3, 1938 in Pontiac, Michigan passed away in his Spring Hill Florida home on June 10, 2020 with the love of his life Sue by his side.  

The Lord gained a very kind and generous soul with his passing.  In 1954 Ron joined the US Army, where upon retirement in 1982 he had been awarded a National Defense Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal (5th Award), Vietnam Service Medal, Bronze Star Medal, Oversea Service Bars, (2) Sharpshooter Qualification Badges (M-16), Drivers Badge, Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross Unit Citation with Palm Army Service Ribbon. Ron was a man who cared so much about everyone that he served not only his family but his country with dedication and honor.  He was such a compassionate and generous person whose giving nature was a true blessing.  Ron had a great passion for cooking, bowling, fishing and providing for others.  He was truly a selfless individual.

Ron is preceded in death by his first wife, Bonnie, 1 brother and 2 sister's.  He is survived by his wife, Sue Marsh of Spring Hill Florida; 3 children, Annette Maine (Bruce) of Goldendale, Washington, Angie Navarre (Mark) of  Brooksville, Florida and Mark Marsh of Puyallup, Washington; 3 stepchildren, Michelle Mixell (John) of Plano Texas, Charles VanHorn (Michelle) of Greensburg, Pennsylvania and Gretchen (Jerome) of Irwin, Pennsylvania; sisters-in-law: Debbie Teed (Don) of Ocala, Florida and Barb Adams of Camphill, Florida; 13 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren.  

Sue would like to share a meaningful quote: Just remember that every flower that bloomed had to go through a whole lot of dirt to get there.  Ron was a beautiful blossom.  Friends and family are welcome to pay their last respects from 12:30pm - 3:00pm, Monday, June 15, 2020 at Merritt Funeral Home, Spring Hill Chapel, 4095 Mariner Blvd., Spring Hill, Florida 34609.  Private burial to follow at Florida National Cemetery.
