Edwin “Ted” Marsh, 87, of DeWitt, passed away Monday, February 3, 2020. Born in Syracuse on June 24, 1932, he was the son of Ellis and Fanny Marsh.

Ted served in the Air National Guard from 1951-1953. Ted was employed as the Town of Dewitt Highway Superintendent for 17 consecutive terms from 1968 - 2001.

Also serving the youth as an employee of Jamesville - Dewitt School District 1954 - 1956, Onondaga Country as a Deputy Sheriff 1957 - 1964.

He loved farming his famous, "Ted Marsh" tomatoes for over 40 years. Member of the Masonic Lodge. An avid antique collector and window to the history of Onondaga county and most notable would be his multiple "breakfast" meetings at a few different dinners / restaurants throughout the town of Dewitt, East Syracuse and Jamesville. Ted would make the rounds 7 days a week drinking plenty of coffee and exchanging ideas with everyone he met.

Ted's success in life was diverse. He lived to serve his country, his family and his community. Ted lived out his later years in his family's farm house that has now spanned four generations. Ted has touched the lives of so many people throughout his years of public service; he was well known to visit the farmers market every Saturday, morning breakfast with his great group of friends, and Friday night dinners with the guys for over 30 years. Ted provided strong direction to his two sons whom he loved dearly. He cherished his grandchildren like no one else and was always there for them to brighten their days and tell them all of his great lifelong stories.

He is predeceased by his parents and two brothers, Jim and Fred, (Fred was Ted’s twin).

Ted is survived by his sons, Daniel T. (Jennifer) Marsh and Timothy E. Marsh; grandchildren, Cody, Zack, Liam and Mackenzie; nieces, nephews; and cousins, Sue Patton and Ann Dupree.
