Jerry Marsh Obituary

In Loving Memory of

August 18,1978 - January 03, 2024

Jerry Dwayne Marsh, affectionately known as "Fatboy," graced this world on August 18, 1978, born to the late Charlesenia Marsh. On Wednesday, January 03, 2024, he transitioned to the eternal stage, leaving a legacy woven in love and rhythm.

Jerry's memories are cherished by his Fiancé, Tyra Jeter, Sisters Anita Marsh and Karenda Spann, Brothers Sean Marsh and Kadeem Spann, Niece Gracelyn Marsh, Nephew Gerrado White, Grandmother Pauline Williams, Aunt Beverly Marsh, Uncles Tracy R. Marsh and Curtis Marsh (Deceased), and Cousin Tiffini Marsh-Wright (Yusef), all rooted in Fayetteville, NC. A host of Family and Friends join in celebrating the life of this remarkable soul.

More than a name, Jerry, aka "Fatboy," was a maestro of joy. He shuffled cards, conquered the virtual realm on his PS5, and embraced the thrill of shopping. His heart beat for the Giants and Golden State, resonating with the pulse of loud music, where rap took the lead. In his teenage years, he rhymed with friends, a lyrical journey etched in the rhythm of youthful dreams.

Cars were his canvas, with a Crown Vic named Dolph, a symbol of his first love. As a devoted dog dad to Bobby Roscoe and Brown Boy, he navigated life's highway with loyal companions by his side. The life of the party, Fatboy coined catchphrases like #itseateattime and #fatpplyabih, embodying his brand, #FPYB, representing "fat people for life."

His academic journey led him from E.E. Smith to a GED earned during incarceration, showcasing resilience and determination. In the intricate weave of our family, Jerry emerged as the glue, caring, protective, and the epitome of a Big Brother to all.

While he had no children of his own, Jerry's love for kids was boundless. A connoisseur of good food, steak, and potato salad were his culinary delights. Chicago Fire and Law and Order were not just shows but windows into the stories that resonated with his heart.

Today, as we celebrate Jerry's life, let us remember the joy he brought, the bonds he forged, and the echoes of laughter that linger. In the tapestry of memories, his spirit continues to dance, leaving an indelible mark on our hearts.

Rest in power, Fatboy, your legacy lives on in the beats of our collective memories. #FPYB Forever.
