Alfred Marsh was born in Detroit Lakes, on June 7th, 1942 to Frank and Gladys (Stokes) Marsh. He attended Wheaton Grammar School, and Breckenridge High School (Class of 1962). He played basketball and is well remembered for being an outstanding track athlete. He married Lennae Lindquist and they had two children, Michael and Desiree. The family lived on a hobby farm in Breckenridge, MN with several family pets. Most were saved from sale barns, roadsides, and some were simply dropped off when no one was home. He took them all in and none went without love; horses, cows, sheep, chickens, dogs, cats and a goat named Lollypop. Alfred was self-employed with an excavating business, and was highly skilled in operating heavy equipment.
The family moved to Daytona Beach, Florida in 1981, where he and his wife owned and operated a book/gift shop. Alfred returned to Wheaton, MN in 1993 and made it his permanent home. He loved working with his hands. Construction was in his blood. He was a devoted Christian and loved country/gospel music, and dancing. He was unstoppable once his feet hit the dance floor. He was called home while listening to his favorite country, gospel music by Johnny Cash, on Sept. 10th at the Traverse Care Center in Wheaton, MN, with his loved ones by his side.
Alfred was preceeded in death by his parents: Frank and Gladys Marsh; brother Edward Leo Marsh; sisters: Elvira Branstner, Marcella Chase, and Beverly Sundvall.
Alfred is survived by sisters: Zelta Brooks of Fargo, ND; Darlene G. Hauschild of Wheaton, MN; and Ida Mae Lasick of Penryn, CA; children: Michael (Joanne) Marsh of Marion, MT; Desiree (Tim) Siegel of Wheaton, MN; grandchildren: Daniel (Heather) Marsh, Crystal Marsh and Landon Siegel; great-grandchildren: Ryder, Poet, and Zaiden Marsh; and many, many, nieces and nephews.
