Simeon Marshall Rising Jr. ’40

Published in Oct. 25, 1995, issue

Marsh Rising died Jan. 25, 1995, in Granville, N.Y., in the house that was his address when he joined our class.

He was the son of Simeon R. '09 and brother of Myron R. '46 (deceased). Marsh attended Exeter and received his Princeton degree in mechanical engineering. He was a member of Key and Seal, rowed 150-lb. crew, participated in the CAA flying program, and roomed with John Peckham and Paul Teeter.

Immediately after graduation, Marsh went with Pratt & Whitney Aircraft in East Hartford, Conn., where he worked for many years and then took a position with United Technologies, engaging in technical writing and editing. In 1977 he retired to his family home, which he enjoyed restoring and maintaining. He also kept up his interest in outdoor sports, flying, and small-bore and black-powder shooting. He was a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineering and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

Marsh remained a bachelor and we are unaware of any immediate surviving family connections. The Class of '40 is saddened at his passing.
