David Alan Marsh

David Alan Marsh passed away on Sunday, March 22, 2015 in the Trauma Care Unit at Intermountain Medical Center, Murray, Utah. He was the victim of a senseless, heinous act of armed robbery at a convenience store in Murray, Utah. David was born in Bend, Oregon to Ron and Peggy Marsh. He graduated from Bend High School in 1970. After graduation, David served a two year mission for the LDS Church in Long Beach, California. David then moved to Salt Lake City where he continued to live until his death. David was known for love of hard work. He was employed at Smiths Food & Drug for 28 years, and worked part-time at Lee Mart in Murray, Utah for over 25 years. While working, David was able to obtain his Bachelors degree from Brigham Young University. David was not a materialistic man. He gave freely to those around him, always thinking of others before himself. He will be remembered for his ever present smile, wry humor, and twinkling eyes. Even though David was an unstoppable worker, he still had time for a number of hobbies: Geneology, canning, making jams and jellys from the fruit trees in his yard, photography, and just enjoying the great outdoors. He also loved sports, especially NASCAR and Jeff Gordon, the Dodgers, and the San Francisco 49ers. His greatest love, though, was for his family, friends, co-workers, and customers. He is survived by his two daughters, Crystal Leavitt of Rancho Cordova, California and Kansas Marsh of Springfield, Missouri; grandchildren: Madeline, Addison, and Brayden; foster daughter Makayla; his father, Ron Marsh; brother, Dan; sisters, Sandra and Susan all of Bend, Oregon and several other aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his mother, Peggy Marsh and nephew, Hunter McAdoo. A viewing will take place on Thursday, April 2nd, 2015, between 6pm and 8pm at the LDS Pheasant Brook Ward, 3737 South 5600 West, West Valley, Utah. A memorial service will take place on Friday, April 3rd, 2015 at 3pm at the LDS Pheasant Brook Ward, 3737 South 5600 West, West Valley, Utah. A private family service will take place later this summer in Bend, Oregon where David will be interred. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the American Heart Association, one of David's favorite charities.
