Marcus and I were business associates but we had become good friends too. We broke bread together many times and enjoyed sharing many personal stories. The last time I saw him we attended a TFC soccer game together. Marcus was a generous and genuine soul. Engaging and unselfish. He was kind enough to offer TFC tickets to my stepson and his friends for a game only a few weeks ago. They had so much fun. We were all so grateful. My heart goes out to his three children. I just found out today. I miss him already.

As a phys ed teacher, volleyball coach and Prefect staff adviser, I feel very fortunate to have spent many quality hours with Marcus at CCI. In every scenario Marcus brought with him an infectious energy that brought a laugh to the class, a little levity to a volleyball timeout and various one liners during prefect cafeteria supervision. My sincerest condolences to all family members at losing someone so special, far too young.

Adelka & Family,
Mr. & Mrs. Anderson Sr.
Our sincerest condolences upon learning of Marcus' passing so unexpectedly.
We were very impressed with Marcus when we met him at Agnes and Marc's wedding. He was always was such a gentleman and also a true gentle man.
It was funny that at times we called Marc by " Marcus"...usually in that 'tone' that parents use when they think their kids have been up to something!
I recall doing that at the rehearsal dinner , and Marcus responded to me; " Yes?".
I was so embarrassed at the time, but he enjoyed the joke!
Please know that we are thinking of all of you at this sad time.
God Bless you all.
Susan & Donnie
