    As a former classmate,I am saddened for your loss. Marcus excelled in academics and sports. He is remembered for his sense of humor. May a God comfort you! Joyce Yeadon Ducote

    There came a little bush head and later the Goober T. No one could predict how they would capture your heart and your wife’s to such a degree. The paths all traveled lead to you giving them a true home. A safe place that you designed that they could call their own. The wisdom, lessons, failures and hurts along the way. Just knowing we would have you, that was enough to make our own way. To say we will miss you, is words that can’t be conveyed. It’s a loss that is great within our hearts, especially when we need your wisdom should we lose our way. I will miss you my dear uncle. I hope I have made you proud. Thank you for all you have done for me. May your place in heaven be profound.

    Annie, so sorry to hear of Marcus’ passing. Remember the happy good times and they will make you smile. Our best to you and your family during this time of sadness.

    This is not the sort of news you ever want to hear about friends. Annie, I am so very sorry for your loss. You and all of the extended family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    We grew up across the road from each other and traveled Holly and Homestead Roads on our bicycles, although at that time the roads never had names attached. We both played on the same football team for the Rock Little Giants for 2 years ’70 & 71, as I graduated in 1972 and Mark in 1974. Our paths changed and we didn’t stay connected after High School but did have a chance
    to occasionally cross paths. I really will remember playing baseball at Moo Moo Algren’s and football with Manfred (the dog) being
    Mark, Rick’s & Mike’s best blocker and tackler. My deepest sympathy to Marcus family.

    Annie, I am so sorry you have had to say goodbye to your husband way too soon. You will be in my thoughts and prayers as you go through these difficult days.
