Norman Leroy Marsh - Class Of 1920

Norman Leroy Marsh

Norman Leroy Marsh, a resident of South Pasadena since 1903, died September 12, 1978. Mr Marsh was a graduate of El Centro Elementary School, South Pasadena High School (Class of 1920) and the University of California at Davis. He was employed by the County of Los Angeles, Department of Public Social Services, for 37 years and had been in retirement at his home on Marengo Avenue for the last seven years.

Mr Marsh was the son of Norman Foote Marsh, longtime resident of South Pasadena, and architect of many of this city's public buildings, among them the South Pasadena Public Library and the South Pasadena Women's Club.

As a boy, Mr Marsh lived in a home designed by his father on Fair Oaks Avenue between El Centro and Mission Street when that street was still quiet and unpaved. After the Pacific Electric tracks were installed, both the Marsh house and the neighboring Parmalee house were moved to Spruce Street. Mr Marsh returned to live in the Parmalee house after his marriage.

Mr Marsh is survived by his wife of 39 years, Alice; his sister Marion '24; his two daughters, Carol '61 and Debra '66; and his son-in-law, Bruce Hunt.
