Walter (Rees) Marsh Jr.
1935 - 2021
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Walter (Rees) Marsh Jr. (85), at the
Bethany Care Centre in Airdrie, Alberta on Friday, January 08, 2021. Walter passed peacefully with his loving wife by his side.
Born in 1935 in London, Ontario, Walter is survived, and deeply missed, by his devoted wife of 64 years, Jeannette Marsh, as well as his children, Heather (Dale), Theresa (Rick), Stephen, Lisa (Fred), Lew (Monique). He will be fondly remembered by his grandchildren, Crystal (Peter), Terra, Chantelle (Greg), Devon, Jesse and Merissa; and his great grandchildren Olivia, Sophie, Milo and Mila. Walter is also survived by his sister Marlyn, his brother Robbie as well as many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, Walter and Margaret, his brothers, John, George and William (Wally), and his infant son Walter (Little Wally).
Walter’s family would like to offer a heartfelt thank you to the staff and management of the
Bethany Care Center for the kind and compassionate care that was given to him during his time at their facility.
Due to Covid 19, a Celebration of Life will take place at a later date when gatherings are
permissible. In lieu of flowers we are asking that if you want to give, please make a donation in his name to either the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada (800 – 7015 MacLeod Trail, SW, Calgary, Alberta, T2H 2K6) or Parkinson Canada (120, 6835 Railway Street, SE, Calgary, Alberta, T2H 2V6) as he suffered from both afflictions.
“In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place, no one else will ever fill.”
