On Sunday morning, Sept. 18, William “Bill” Terry Marx Sr., joined his wife, Gail Wadford Marx in Heaven.

Bill was born in Houston, Texas and over the years lived in numerous locations with family. Bill settled in Kenbridge, where he spent over 40 years with his wife, Gail.

He later drove over-the-road for Overnight Transportation and then UPS of Richmond, where he retired with almost 30 years of service. Upon retirement, he became a licensed Bail Bondsman and Private Investigator, under his company, Free State Bail Bonds, which was in operation for over 20 years.

Bill served honorably in the United States Marine Corps and the United States Air Force, but was most to be a proud to be Marine.

Bill was an avid hunter and outdoorsman. He enjoyed collecting firearms, target shooting and was a member of the Arrowhead Gun Club. He was immensely proud of his collection of deer and bear mounts that he displayed in his home.
