Amarillo, TX - Stanley Marsh 3 passed away Tuesday afternoon at the age of 76 according to sources close to the Marsh family.

Marsh is best known for the Cadillac Ranch, which has drawn tourists to Amarillo since the 1970's. He also funded many art projects around Amarillo including the Dynamite Museum, the Floating Mesa, Ozymandias, and hundreds of mock traffic signs.

As the son of a wealthy oilman in the Texas Panhandle, Marsh owned a local television station for years and owned offices on the 12th floor of the Chase Tower in downtown Amarillo.

Marsh and his wife Wendy were philanthropists who supported many organizations over the years including the Ascension Academy, Amarillo College, and the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.

Marsh suffered a series of strokes in 2011 and has been in and out of the hospital in recent months due to severe health issues.  

In recent years, he also faced multiple allegations of sexual assault of a minor, but was never convicted.

    Vacant properties aren't just eye sores to the community. These abandoned homes increase the chance of crime, promote illegal activity, and are serious fire hazards. "Often we find that even though it might be boarded up someone has found a way to enter the structure. And as it gets cold, obviously those people may try to start a fire or something inside to stay warm. And as a result of course we get a structure fire," said Community Development Administrator James Allen. ...
