It is with great sadness that the Marsh family announce the passing of Frank Stephen Marsh at age 82 on Saturday, February 12, 2022, in the Palliative Care Unit of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney.

Born November 5, 1939, in Sydney, Frank was the son of the late Louis and Beatrice Marsh.

Besides his parents, Frank was predeceased by brother, Louis Marsh and sister, Edie Snow.

Frank is survived by his wife of 61 years, Rose (Doucet) Marsh; brother, Fred Marsh (Ann); sons, Darren (Carolyn), Kerry (Alison), and Todd; grandchildren, Stephen, Aidan and Claire; great-granddaughter, Sawyer; as well as several nieces & nephews with special mention to Lori Ann (Doucet) MacLean and Tressa MacLeod.

Frank grew up on MacKenzie Street, just off Townsend Street and he often spoke fondly of his times hanging around Kay’s and being a rink rat at the old Sydney Forum. He was an avid sportsman that loved hockey, baseball, and harness racing.

Frank spent the majority of his career working for the Cape Breton County School Board. In retirement, he started a business with a couple of friends, the Leisure Gardens Bingo Hall and its success was a source of great pride.

The Marsh family would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Myatt (and staff Janice and Laura), staff at Palliative Care at Cape Breton Regional Hospital, and VON.

There will be no visitation or service at this time, for the late Frank Marsh but a memorial service will be held at a later date.

Donations in memory of Frank may be the Palliative Care Unit of CBRH or the Cape Breton SPCA.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.
