Tom Marsh, age 75 of Bee Spring, peacefully departed this life with his family by his side on Tuesday, September 6, 2022. The Jersey City, New Jersey native was born on March 25, 194, to the late George and Theresa Fitzpatrick Marsh. He was married to his best friend, devoted wife, and help mate of fifty-three years, Patricia Lamar Marsh, who survives.
Tom owned Marsh Trucking and retired after many years of driving for himself, as well as Atlas Trucking Company and Alexander’s Moving and Storage. While driving across the Arizona desert, Tom found the Lord and was saved in his semi-truck. He came back home to Kentucky, proclaimed what the Lord had done for him, and united himself with Sweeden Missionary Baptist Church, where he remained a faithful member until his passing.
Besides his wife, Patricia, he leaves to honor his memory his family whom he adored his daughters, Tonya Marsh-McGrew (Bobby), Kelly Marsh Rich (Joey), and Amanda Jo Morton (Michael “Crowder”) of Bee Spring; his grandchildren, Justin Goins (Kasy), Madison Phelps (Alex), Cash and Caroline Morton; his siblings, Jimmy Marsh (Barbara), Charlie Marsh (Annie) and Jackie Chevalier (Harry); along with several in-laws, nieces, and nephews. He was also preceded in death by his twin brother, Georgie Marsh.
