Lyman Marc Hirschi, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle, passed away September 3, 2021, at McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, Utah, surrounded by his wife and children. Marc was born May 28, 1955, to Lyman and Helen Hirschi in Montpelier, Idaho, the third of five children and grew up in Geneva, Idaho. He worked on the family farm until he went to work at Agrium, where he retired after 27 years.
Marc was an avid hunter, and his love of the outdoors was immense. He felt a calmness when he was in the mountains. Marc valued his family and friends. He cherished his children and grandchildren; they were his pride and joy. He had many lifelong friends; he was loyal and provided support to anyone who needed him. He was loved by his siblings and extended family. Marc's wit will be missed by all.
His passing will leave a void in the lives of all who knew him. His family is taking great comfort in knowing he is reunited with his dear parents. And Marc is at peace, knowing he will be there to welcome those who follow him, especially his grandson Tyler.
Marc is survived by his wife Sherrie. It was his wish to be the best husband he could be, and he fulfilled that wish beyond measure. He was her rock, her love; he took a part of her with him. He is also survived by his son Brandon Hirschi, daughter Brooke (Travis) Williamsen, daughter Ashley (Miles) Reynolds, daughter Allie (Danny) Theurer, his adored 16 grandchildren, stepchildren Jocelynn Drake, Tyler (Caitlin) Drake, his sister Michele Hendrickson, brother Spencer (Sheila) Hirschi, brother Kim (Jackie) Hirschi, sister Karlene (Hugh) Love, his nieces and nephews, and his many treasured friends.
Marc was doing what he loved, camping in the mountains when he suffered a heart attack. His family expresses their deepest thanks to all who were involved in his care; Hugh, who drove him to the hospital quickly; the dedicated ER Staff at Franklin County Medical Center who worked tirelessly to revive him and cared for him until Life Flight arrived; the Life Flight crew whose skill and care kept him stable while he was en route to McKay-Dee; to the unbelievable ICU staff at McKay-Dee, who treated him with urgency, compassion, and respect, and made his last hours as peaceful as possible, with his family by his side. Because Marc was always there to help us in time of need, we know that if we ever drive off into the rhubarb, he will be there to guide us back.
It was Marc's wish to be cremated and hold a Celebration of Life open house. It will be held in Marc's honor on Saturday, October 2, 2021, from 1:00-3:00 pm at the Preston Community Park, 98 E. Oneida Street (next to the Oneida Stake Academy). Marc also asked that in lieu of flowers, tell all those you love how much they mean to you and cherish every day with them.
Arrangements are under the direction of Franklin County Funeral Home 56 S State Street, Preston. Please share a favorite memory or offer condolences to the family by leaving a tribute on this page.
"My condolences to the family. Marc was my second cousin, his dad was my Grandma\'s brother. My happiest days were spent with Marc, his brother Kim, and sister Karlene at the ranch in Geneva and the family reunions. He was my first crush, first kiss (kissin\' cousins lol), and I loved him dearly. Marc\'s death reminds us how quickly life can slip away. I kept hoping he\'d get on FB so we could harass each other. Even though I hadn\'t seen him in recent years I will miss him, just knowing he\'s not there. He\'s probably still catching up on hugging all the loved ones who went before him. "
"Dad, I miss and love you! I can?t believe this is real. My heart aches for your funny calls, your smell good Cologne and your mystery meat? it was so cute how you?d laugh and your eyes would crunch up.. The grandkids miss grandpa, Blakely has prayed every day since you?re passing that Grandpa would get feeling better. I wish I could hug you? I know I?ll see you again soon, until then have fun camping, hunting, razor riding and enjoying being with your parents again. I love you Daddy?
I still can believe your gone"
"I?m so sorry for your family?s loss. I?ve known Marc almost my whole life. He?s been such an amazing friend to my dad, Glen. He was a great friend to me, and we always joked around about taking each other out to steak dinner. He will be greatly missed. "
