Lucas M. Marsh

November 5, 1979 — January 17, 2022


Lucas Merritt Marsh passed away peacefully Monday, Jan. 17, 2022 at his home in Texas.  Born November 5, 1979 in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, he was the son of Randy Merritt Marsh and Dawn Blanchette Richard. From a young age Lucas could be found taking toys apart, electrical items, and put them back together just to see how that functioned.  He had a lifelong LOVE of Citizens' Band (CB) Radio and Amateur Radio (HAM Radio) operation.  Lucas could be heard calling CQ CQ, which means, “I wish to contact any amateur station.” You could hear him talking all over the world with his call sign KB9MEJ.  Lucas was a tried-and-true Green Bay Packers fan.  No matter what state he lived in, he never wavered, he was a “CHEESEHEAD” all the way.

Lucas moved to MD to finish his high school years and lived with his Aunt Marsha and Grandmother Marsh.  After graduation from Easton High School (Class of '99), Lucas began working at Black and Decker as a test console operator.  During that time, Lucas was diagnosed in 2000 with Type 1 Insulin-Dependent Diabetes, which required major lifestyle changes.  However, he continued at his job and at the same time attended Chesapeake College where he earned his Associates Degree in Electronics Technology in 2004.  Receiving this degree was a huge accomplishment and a very proud moment for all our family.  In 2005, Lucas worked as a crew leader/installer with J&C Custom Design Security, and in 2007, worked as a QC Inspector at Power Electronics until 2014. Due to his health, he moved to San Antonio, Texas in 2015.

Lucas was a very proud Dad, to be blessed with five children, CheyAnn Danielle Shipman, USAF, JBSA-Lackland, San Antonio, Texas, Lucas Jr., Marcel, Benjamin, and Cecilia Marsh all of Sudlersville, Maryland.

Lucas leaves behind his fiancé and forever love, Lina Jimenez.

Lucas was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents Richard and Alberta Blanchette, and his paternal grandparents James R. (Jimmy) and Anna Mae Marsh.
