MARSH, JOHN “JOHNNY” ALBERT; of Waterville, OH; age 90; formerly of Rochester Hills, MI; died peacefully, Wednesday, January 21, 2015 at Hospice of Northwest Ohio, Perrysburg. Beloved husband of the late Clara. He was born July 19, 1924 in Columbus, OH. During W. W. II he served in the 5th Army, 10th Mountain Division-Italy. Always a courteous and polite gentleman, John had a quick and dry sense of humor with a wink of his eye. John and Clara moved to Rochester Hills, MI in the 1980’s where he attended the Congregational church. After retiring from the tool, die and machining industry, John remained very busy and loved working part time at the Damon’s/Ace Hardware, Rochester, MI. John’s vast mechanical knowledge was invaluable at the hardware and always there to lend a hand, customers knew they were going to get what they needed. Among those who will miss him are the young who worked alongside him. John was active in clock maker societies and woodworking clubs. He fashioned his own faceting machine for cutting gems as he and Clara shared a love for beautiful rocks and minerals. John was also an avid photographer who developed, printed and framed his own work. After moving to Browning Masonic Community, Waterville, OH in 2009, John was passionate about and continued attending clock and woodworker’s events, taking field trips often to art and glass and police museums and the zoo. He was one who did not want to draw attention to himself so John’s request was for no viewing or visitation. There will be a Memorial Service at Browning Masonic Community, Waterville, OH, 6 p.m., Monday, January 26, 2015. Military Honors and a Graveside Service will be held 1 p.m., Tuesday, January 27, 2015 at Mt. Avon Cemetery in Rochester, where John will be by Clara’s side again. Memorials may be made to Browning Masonic Community, Waterville, OH. Arrangement in care of Pixley Funeral Home, Rochester.
