On June 2nd, 2021, Harold Stinson Marsh, 85, joined our Lord in His heavenly home. What a celebration it must have been!

Harold was born June 6, 1935, in Siler City to Roland Hayes Marsh and Janie Estelle Stinson Marsh. He was the second of eight children. After high school, he served his country in the Navy and then attended N.C. State University. Though he and his father founded Marsh Auto Parts, Harold’s chosen career was an electrical engineer at IBM in RTP.

The absolute most important thing in his life was his relationship with Jesus Christ and sharing the good news of salvation with anyone and everyone.

His next priority was his family. Married 56 years to Judy Pritchard Marsh, they have three children together: Emily Marsh Henderson (and Tim), Laura Marsh Clapp (and Al) all of Siler City, and Paul Harold Marsh (and Cari) of Kernersville. Harold also leaves a step-daughter, Cathy Smith Judge (and Fred) of Siler City. He will also be sorely missed by his grandchildren Jonathan Marsh (and Angel), Sharyn Guthrie (and Josh), Jennifer Henderson, Aiden Henderson, Ivey C. Morgan (and Tanner), Carson Clapp, Caroline Clapp, Julianne Marsh, Eliza Marsh, Nolan Marsh, Chris Bowling (and Diana) and Dianna Mangum (and David) as well as 12 great-grandchildren and a multitude of nephews and nieces.

Harold’s surviving siblings are Dalton (and Marie) Marsh, Charles Marsh, Edd (and Gaylene) Marsh, Anna (and Tommy) Emerson, Ruth (and Tony) DiCroce and Becky Pollok. He is also survived by his brother-in-law, Don Ludington.

Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Jean Ludington, sister-in-law, Linda Marsh and brother-in-law, Dave Pollok.

Visitation was held Saturday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. at Smith & Buckner Funeral Home. The funeral was held on Sunday, June 6, 2021, at 2 p.m. at Loves Creek Baptist Church in Siler City.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider a contribution in Harold’s memory to either Loves Creek Baptist Church at 1745 E. Eleventh St., Siler City, N.C. 27344 or UNC Hospice Home at 100 Roundtree Way, Pittsboro, N.C. 27312.

Smith & Buckner is assisting the Marsh family.
