Veteran has worked at the Canfield Fair for half a century

Posted: Updated:

CANFIELD, Ohio -  If you think you have been to a lot of Canfield Fairs, consider the history of Homer Marsh.

After serving in Germany during World War Two, Homer came back to Ohio and became a ticket taker at the fair.

 Now he gives the hand stamp for people to re-enter the fairgrounds.

After more than half a century of working the fair, Homer has cutback on his schedule.  "Just two or three days. Two or three days. That's it. I'm 88 years old. It's too much anymore.", said Marsh.

Homer thinks the fair gets better every year, and he still enjoys greeting the people.
