Col Harley T. "Swampy" Marsh

1936
 

Col Harley T. "Swampy" Marsh died September 7, 2012 at the age of 95 from complications caused by leukemia. Swampy's military career began at the age of 13 when he was enrolled at Greenbrier Military School in Lewisburg, WV. It was at Greenbrier where he first met his future wife, Helen. Upon graduation from Greenbrier, he entered the US Military Academy in 1937. He graduated West Point in June 1941 and was commissioned a 2nd Lt. in the Infantry. Swampy spent the next 30 years serving his country with pride and distinction earning numerous awards and recognitions. He married Helen Duncan September 19, 1942. Having spent their marriage at numerous posts and bases, his last duty station was Ft. Sam Houston, where he retired from the military in 1971. They had moved into the Bel Meade subdivision in San Antonio in 1968 and became very active in their community and built a large group of close friends. In November 2000, his wife had a stroke and spent the next 3 years at Parklane West Health Care Center under constant care. Swampy showed his undying devotion to his wife during those 3 years by spending every day but 3 visiting his wife at Parklane prior to her death. He was there so frequently that some staff members thought he worked there. Swampy was part of the "Greatest Generation" who went about their daily tasks quietly, without fanfare, without complaining and expecting no thanks or recognition. In his community of Bel Meade he became the "go to" person when something needed to be done. In recognition of the many of years work and service he did for his community, in May 2000, the City Council of San Antonio passed an ordinance naming a Bel Meade greenspace "Swampy Marsh Park". He viewed this as a highlight of his life. Swampy will be dearly missed by his family, friends and all those that knew him. Swampy was preceded in death by his mother, Virginia Cossman Marsh, his father, Harley T. Marsh, Sr., and his wife, Helen Duncan Marsh. He is survived by his son Jeff (Mary) Marsh, daughter Pamela Ann Marsh, grandson James (Kellie) Marsh, granddaughter Kimberly (Richard) Skidmore, and great grandchildren Madelyn Marsh and Coltin Marsh. The family wants to give a special thanks to all the wonderful doctors and nurses who gave him such great care for his prostate cancer and his leukemia. Visitation will be at Sunset Funeral Home, Austin Highway, from 5:00PM to 7PM on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2012. Funeral Services will be held at Sunset Funeral Home Chapel on Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2012 at 9:00A.M. Interment will follow at Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery.

John Arthur Einreinhofer

1954
 

John A. Einreinhofer, 77, a 46-year resident of the Newfoundland section of West Milford Township, N.J., died suddenly on July 10, 2012, in Stockholm, N.J. He had suffered from complications of diabetes and hypertension in recent years. He was born April 1, 1935, in Passaic, N.J., the son of John and Minnie Einreinhofer, who both predeceased him. He is survived by his beloved wife of more than 47 years, Mildred, of Newfoundland, N.J.; his son, John Einreinhofer of South Charleston, formerly of Newfoundland; grandson, John of South Charleston; son, Donald Einreinhofer, formerly of Newfoundland, now of Stockholm, N.J.; daughter-in-law, Johanna; granddaughter, Jane, and granddaughter, Delana, also of Stockholm; brother, Robert Einreinhofer and sister-in-law, Nancy Einreinhofer, of Sparta, N.J.; and nephew, Bobby Einreinhofer of Jefferson Township, N.J.
John grew up in Garfield, N.J., where he starred in track and football, and went on to military school at Greenbrier Military Academy in Lewisburg, where he played football and boxed. He was offered a football scholarship to William and Mary College, but injuries forced him to instead continue his football career at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia. At Hampden-Sydney, he had a 270-plus yard rushing performance with three touchdowns against Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, a performance so impressive that Baltimore Colts scouts in the stands later sent him letters of interest. However, injuries forced him to give up his football playing career and he completed his history degree at Farleigh Dickinson University. He also then served in the United States Army in the 50th Armored Division where he was part of an M-48 tank crew. He began his teaching career at the then-Pope Pius High School in Passaic, N.J., where he met his wife, Mildred, while both were teaching. He then moved on to West Milford Township High School, where he coached track, cross-country and football and taught history for 30 years before his retirement. He was inducted into the Passaic County Coaches Hall of Fame and won multiple Skyline and Northern Hills Conference Coach of the Year awards, and recorded more than 100 wins as head coach in both track and cross-country while head coach. In an inspired performance, his track team won the Northern Hills Conference title in his final season as head coach in 1985. He was cited as a father figure by many he taught and coached. A very honorable person and devoted family man, he will be greatly missed. He enjoyed history, in which he was an expert, reading, hunting, gardening, following football, boxing and, especially, the New York Yankees. He also enjoyed travel to West Virginia and the Jersey Shore.

Visitation will be Friday at Lesko-Stickle Funeral Home in Newfoundland, N.J. The funeral will be held Saturday.

Frank C. McCue

1951
 

'Doc' McCue dies at 82

Credit: University of Virginia Media Relations

Dr. Frank McCue, who led the sports medicine program at the University of Virginia for decades, passed away on Sunday at the age of 82.

By: JERRY RATCLIFFE | Daily Progress
Published: July 08, 2012
» 1 Comment | Post a Comment
One of the most beloved individuals in University of Virginia history, Dr. Frank C. McCue III, passed away Sunday at the age of 82.

Known simply to most as “Doc,” McCue directed the UVa sports medicine program for more than 40 years. He was a pioneer in orthopedic surgery and once considered the leading hand surgeon in the nation, often attracting some of the biggest names in professional sports to his care.

Not only did McCue, the Cavaliers’ team physician, and his longtime sidekick Joe Gieck, take care of UVa athletes but also donated their time to treat athletes from other universities around the state as well as injured high school athletes.

“No one loved the University of Virginia more, nor has anyone done more to contribute to the welfare of citizens across the Commonwealth than Frank McCue,” said Virginia athletics director Craig Littlepage. “When I think about people that truly made a difference in the welfare of others, Dr. McCue will be at the top of my list. It is hard to estimate the number of patients he served, the number of aspiring doctors and trainers he mentored or the number of hours he volunteered during his career.”

McCue served as surgeon for not only UVa but the University of Richmond, William & Mary and VMI athletics programs prior to those institutions having their own doctors.

In 1998, the McCue Society was created in his honor and annually provided numerous scholarships in the field of Sports Medicine to both graduates and undergraduates at the June dinner.

It was at the dinner three years ago when former UVa basketball player and head coach Jeff Jones gave an inside perspective on what Dr. McCue meant to student-athletes and coaches alike. Jones was fired as the Cavaliers’ coach in 1998 and referenced that period of his life in a personal story about McCue.

“April 6, 1998, wasn’t the best day or month for me,” Jones told those attending the McCue Society dinner. “It was a tough time, but often in difficult times, things are revealed that make a meaningful impact that sticks with you a long time. I received a letter from Dr. McCue, that I still have.”

Noting that, Jones pulled the letter from his pocket and read it aloud to the crowd.

“Many people have come and gone in the athletic department and the athletes are part of my family,” McCue wrote Jones. “I really think of you as another son. If I can ever do anything for you and yours, just let me know.”

Jones said he has kept the letter over the years because McCue was always special to him and always will be.

“Thousands of lives have been touched in a positive way by Dr. Frank McCue,” Jones said.

McCue was a native of Maxwelton, W.Va., and attended Greenbrier Military School in Lewisburg, before receiving his bachelor’s and medical degrees from UVa in 1952 and 1956. He completed his residency training in orthopedic surgery at UVa and a two-year fellowship in surgery of the hand with Drs. Joseph Boyes, James Wilson and Herbert Stark in Los Angeles at the University of Southern California.

He returned to UVa in 1961 and joined the School of Medicine faculty as an instructor in orthopedic surgery. He was named a full professor of orthopedic surgery in 1974.

McCue retired in 2003 and was named Professor Emeritus of Orthopedics at UVa hospital and because of his love and dedication to Cavalier football, he became the first inductee to the Order of the Crossed Sabres, which is the Virginia Football Alumni Club’s most prestigious honor.

The Virginia High School Coaches Association, in appreciation of the work that McCue volunteered for decades, annually presents a sports medicine award in his name.

McCue loved his “fellows,” that would join colleagues, athletic trainers, students, coaches and friends each summer for the McCue Society conference where the good doctor would always hold court.

Even this past June, with health conditions presenting him discomfort, McCue managed to attend the dinner and shared his thoughts with those in attendance.

The McCue Center, which is UVa’s primary athletics support building and also houses sports medicine and the Cavaliers’ football program, is named in his honor.

“Frank McCue represented the values that make the University of Virginia great,” said UVa president Teresa A. Sullivan. “He was selfless, dedicated, professional and always ready to serve the University he so loved. His presence will be greatly missed and his contributions simply cannot be overstated.”

Littlepage perhaps said it best with his final thought on McCue.

“He’ll be missed and there will never be another like him,” Littlepage said.

Harold "Buddy" Baisden

1958
 

Harold Lloyd Baisden, age 71 passed from this life on May 19, 2012. He was the much beloved father of Eva Baisden Canitano and Lisa Baisden Towery. Our Dad loved his son in laws, Joseph Canitano and Roger Towery. He truly adored his three grandchildren, Courtney Canitano, Matthew Towery and Michael Towery and they have so many special memories of the years they spent together. We will forever cherish the many trips we took over the years, our camping adventures, hiking and walks on the beach. We will always think of him when we see the leaves change in Fall, a beautiful waterfall or talking with our children around the fire. We were blessed to remain close and committed as a family over the years. We will continue to carry on his legacy and are thankful to so many of you who have reached out to us over the years. He truly felt loved and appreciated by all of you.

He was a 1958 graduate of Greenbrier Military School and Marshall University. He proudly served his country in the United States Army. He was a retired Fairfax County police officer as well as serving the Prince William County Sheriff’s Department. It was truly his honor to serve in that capacity.

He also leaves behind a sister, Carolyn Sue Crum and her husband Doug, brother, Darvin and his wife Nancy, sister Kaye and husband Richard. He cherished his nieces and nephews, James, John, Walter, Ben, Sandi and Travis. We would also like to acknowledge his special relationship with his cousin, Earl Baisden as well as his very dear friend, Chuck Cohenour.

What has been our earthly loss is certainly Heaven’s gain. We have truly been blessed by this special man. A private family memorial will be held at a later date.
