Larry Wayne Marsh

  Larry Wayne Marsh was born March 2, 1940 to Charlie Robinson Marsh and Effie Odisa (Cummings) Marsh. Larry Passed away on March 15, 2015.

   Larry is survived by his wife of 55 years, Linda, of the home, 2 sons, Wayne and wife Denise, of Tulsa, OK, Billy and wife Lynda, of Houston TX, 4 grandchildren, Raven and Nicky Marsh Jared and Taylor Marsh, 4 great grandchildren, and many relatives and friends.

    Larry was loved by all. At the age of 18, Larry lost both legs to a drunk driver. He was helping someone out of the ditch when the drunk driver ran off of the road and pinned him between two cars. That didn’t stop Larry. He married the love of his life, went on to college, and got his teaching degree. He loved teaching. He taught on the Navajo Reservation in New Mexico, and Arizona. He taught so that every child could succeed. All of the students loved him and couldn’t wait to be in his classroom.  Larry worked hard all of his life, in spite of always being in pain. He never complained, and someone asked him, “How do you do it?” and his response was “What choice do I have?!” He won many awards for his teaching. He won the Presidential award and received it in Washington D.C. All of his awards were for his teaching ability, not for being handicapped. He always said he was not handicapped, and he wasn’t. Nothing stopped Larry. The Navajo Nation presented him with a plaque that read, “Handicappable”. Larry always said he wouldn’t live beyond 50 years of age, but God had other plans for him. He made it to his 75th birthday. He always had a big smile for everyone he came across.
He and his wife wrote and published a book about his life. If anyone wants one, they are available free of charge, just ask his wife.
