He left the earth with beloved family members at his side, and in the thoughts of many others who lovingly had stayed by his side during his recent time of tribulation. He is now reunited in heaven with his beloved wife, Faye, his mother and father, brothers and sisters, and other loved ones who had previously passed on. He was the last of his family to return back home.\r\n\r\nHal was born on a cold February morning in his parent’s home in Taylorsville, Utah, in 1928 to Clyde Marsden and Annie Ivy Skeen Marsden. \r\n\r\nHe was raised in rural (at the time) Murray, Utah, and was the youngest of 5 children. He graduated from Murray High School where he met the love of his life, Faye Levorsen. They were married and sealed in the Salt Lake Temple, and enjoyed life as husband and wife for 66 years before she passed away in 2013. He has missed her every day since then. \r\n\r\nHal loved cars, farm machinery and tractors. His hobby was cars. He would take great care of his cars, and taught his sons to do the same. His career began working in the family business for his father who owned a farm machinery dealership. He spent his life career as a salesman for various companies selling farm machinery to many who would later become his friends. Whenever he met someone, it was his goal to find out if they knew a person in common. He had a hall of fame success rate in finding these connections as he had the opportunity to meet so many people in his travels around the area. \r\n\r\nHe had a strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ and was active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints serving in many capacities as counselors to bishops, stake high council, and recently served at the Intermountain Medical Center in Murray. But his greatest calling was that of Father to 5 children, Ann (Kim), Ron (Shirley), Dee (Sherri), Carol (Doug), and Connie (Tom). He loved people and loved to engage in conversations. Until the recent Covid pandemic interrupted it, he would meet for lunch monthly with his old high school buddies talking about the good times they had in the good old days. \r\n\r\nHe lived out his days in and near Murray, Utah, which he loved. He is survived by his 5 children and spouses, Sister-in-law, Joan, and numerous grandchildren, and great grandchildren. He leaves a legacy of love, service, kindness, and striving to do what is right.\r\n\r\nA viewing will be held this Sunday, May 16, 5:00 to 7:00 pm at Soffe Mortuary, 1007 West South Jordan Parkway (10600 South). Funeral services will be held at the River Ridge 10th Ward chapel, 1409 West Shields Lane (9800 South) at 11:00 am, Monday May 17, 2021. Prior to the service, a viewing will be held from 9:45 to 10:45 am. Burial will be at the Murray City Cemetery.\r\n\r\nWe wish to thank the staff at The Sheridan (now Anthology) for their kindness in taking care of our father these past few months, and especially to our sister Connie and brother-in-law Tom, who lovingly welcomed our father into their home.
