    Bob "Boom Boom" Marsh was a good friend of mine back in the 1970s, before I left Wilmington to attend graduate school. We played a lot of sandlot football together (thus the nickname) and hung out. He was a force on the field of play and a good and loyal friend in the field of life. I regret that I lost touch with him, even after I moved back to Wilmington in the mid-1990s. I will remember him with much fondness. My condolences to Kim and family. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Go Boom Boom!

    I, too, played sandlot football with Bobby Marsh. It was an interesting get together; kids from Long Leaf Park and Forest Hills. But we always got along and even developed lasting friendships. What I remember most is just hanging out. Bobby was fun to be around and had an unrestrained sense of humor. And the meals his mother (Mrs. Godwin) served were mouthwatering! My condolences to Kim and the family. William Billingsley, Laguna Hills, California

    Bob and I meet when we were classmates at Cape Fear Tech in 1971. Over the next 20 years we shared some great times together. We played countless games of pool. We played tennis and sandlot football. The best days of all were when we were playing golf or fishing. What I loved most about being with Bob was the laughter we shared. There were times when both of us laughed so hard we cried. The last time I saw Bob was almost 20 years ago. We talked on the phone 2 or 3 times about 3 years ago and did some texting shortly after that. Two weeks ago today I started a text thread with Bob that lasted 7 days. We talked about finding our golf clubs and playing again after so many years. In Bob's final text on the evening of January 12th, he said, " I have to be at dialysis at 5am. goodnight. " I was shocked when I saw the word Dialysis. It was the first I had heard of this. I replied, "Will talk about this later. I did not know." I procrastinated too long to make that call. On Wednesday morning I saw the terrible news that Kim had posted on Bob's Facebook page. I am filled with terrible sadness because Bob was one of the best friends I ever had. Some of the best times of my life were spent with him. My condolences to Kim and her family during this most difficult time.
