Richard Edward Marsh Sr., 70, passed away unexpectedly at home on August 28, 2020. Richard was born in Springfield on April 3, 1950, son to the late Edward Marsh and Helen (Caffrey) Murdock.
A hero, a champion, a man of compassion, he is loved and liked by everyone he’d ever met. From his younger years up til now he was a man with many talents and worked more jobs than most people normally fit in one lifetime. Throughout everything he’d done he’d seen it all, Vietnam War to Covid-19. The wisdom and knowledge he gained during all this time made him the go to guy. You could ask him anything and he’d always know the right thing to say. He was everything to us, and though words cannot express, in trying he is our rock, our joy, our laughter, our heart, our soul and our light. The world lost a little of that light and someone so great that it will never be the same again. For those of you who knew him, you know he’d still want us to be happy. So smile and cry or laugh and cry, either way, he’d be mad if we were only sad. He was Dad.
Richard is survived by his wife of 44 years Pamela (Lang) Marsh, children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, and cousins. He will be dearly missed by his friends and all who knew him. Sadly, due to the Covid19 Pandemic, there will be no service. To express condolences to the family, please visit www.westfieldfuneralhome.com for Richard’s memorial page.
