Bud Marsee

D.L. Coach Bud Marsee, 86, of Auburn passed away on Thursday, February 5, 2015, at Arbor Springs Health and Rehab after a lengthy illness. Coach Bud Marsee was born in Mishawaka, IN, on August 28, 1928 to Ruth Wheeler and Dwight L. Marsee. During his school years in Mishawaka, he played basketball, golf, and baseball and graduated from Mishawaka High School in 1946. Following graduation he went to Purdue University where he lettered in basketball and golf. Due to an accident en route to the NCAA Golf Championship at Stanford University by auto in 1948, he sustained a spinal injury, was paralyzed, and was out of school a year and a half rehabbing himself back home. He transferred to Florida State University where he could continue his athletic endeavors. He graduated from FSU in 1952. After graduation he worked at The Florida School for Boys in Marianna, teaching and coaching. He married the former Barbara Ann Fryer January 31, 1953. From 1953 to 1970 he taught, coached and was the athetic director at South Broward High School, Hollywood, Florida. Auburn All-American, Tucker Frederickson, played on his high school basketball team. From 1970 till 1984 he coached golf and taught at Broward Communiy College, where his teams won two National Junior College Championps. In 1984 he re-started the women's golf program at Auburn University and won an SEC Champtionship in 1989. He became assistant men's golf coach in 1992 and retired in 1997. Because he had taught drafting/lettering at the high school level, quality golf tournament scoreboards had become a priority with him in the 70s. After retirement he and Barbara continued traveling and doing college golf tournament scoreboards together. He had a BS degree in Education from FSU and a Masters of Education from Indiana University where both his parents had graduated in 1924. He was a member of Auburn United Methodist Church and the Mishawaka High School Athletic Hall of Fame, Indiana High School Golf Hall of Fame, the National Junior College Golf Hall of Fame and Golf Coaches of America Hall of Fame. And a member of the Letterman's Club at Florida State University. He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Barbara, his son Richard A. Marsee (Nancy), grandsons Ryan A. Marsee and Jeremy Dickinson, sister-in-law, Betty Sue Veal, Tallahassee, FL, nieces, Pam Kuester (Ed), Peggy Taylor and Natalie Taylor and nephew Josh Taylor.
