Dee Marsden

pal: Past Active Life (PAL)

Howard Dee Marsden 73, of Sun Lakes Arizona passed on December 25, 2009 after living courageously with brain cancer for the past six months.

Dee was truly a cowboy (trooper) fighting on to the last minute. He was remarkably at peace and rest on Christmas Day. It truly was a special gift for the family to have him pass on such a special occasion of togetherness, warmth, compassion and so much love.

Dee’s wishes were for us all to celebrate his life to the fullest. In our hopes and prayers Dee is now off living his dream of being with family and simply enjoying Mother nature at its best, while fishing his way along the many of rivers and lakes that he has visited over the years which are near and around his homeland country in the Northwest and Southwest. Catch a Big one, Dee!

Left to cherish Dee’s memory are his wife Harriet, son Russell Travis Marsden(Kazumi) daughter Terra Ann Marsden, 3 Granddaughters, Tiara(9), Kiley(6), and Riana(3), 4 sisters Donna Christensen(Jack), Betty Newberry(Jerry), Veloy Lewis and Kay Winn(Larry).
