Obituary for Wallace "Wally" Mahlum Marsh

Wally (Age 66) was born November 17, 1950 and died comfortably an in peace on August 25, 2017 with his family by his side. He was the only son of Christel and Weber Marsh. Wally was named for both of his grandfathers since he was the only boy in the family. He is preceded in death by his parents and a great-niece Kiley rose. Wally is survived by his sisters; Linda (Gene) Hodgden of Chewelah, Janice (Vern) Anderson of Spokane, Carmen (Steve) Deal also of Chewelah, along with his nieces; Cheryl, Karen and Heidi, nephews; Robert, William, Brian and Duane. He is also survived by his Uncle and Aunt, Dennis and Darlene Mahlum of West Richland, as well as numerous cousins. Wally attended Emerson Elementary in Spokane, and Chattaroy Elementary, graduating from Riverside High School in 1969. He was a good athlete and played several sports including basketball during his high school years. Wally attended Community College in Spokane and was an active duty sailor in the Navy. He developed excellent skills as an auto mechanic and had a large clientele for foreign cars. Wallys true passion was fishing, and he spent many days fishing on lake Pend Oreille. He was also an expert in creating fishing flies that he successfully used in his quest for the biggest and best fish. One of the highlights of his fishing career was winning the Lake Pend Oreille Idaho Club K&K Week Fishing Derby in 1986. He was also a member of the Rainbow Hall of Fame in 1991 for catching a Gerrard Rainbow Trout greater than 25# at Lake Pend Oreille. Wallys family would like to extend a special thanks to Colette Briden for her care and companionship during the last eight years of his life. We would also like to thank Hospice of Spokane, especially the Northside Hospice House for the wonderful care and treatment Wally and his family received at the end of his life. Donations may be made to the Alzheimers Association, Hospice of Spokane or another charity of your choice. There will be a gathering for family and friends on Saturday, September 16th at Janice Andersons home, located at 1317 Woodside Place in Spokane, beginning at 1:00 PM. Please bring your memories to share.
