Sending love to Marc’s family which I know he adored beyond words. Every recent conversation I had with Marc, even years apart, were full of nothing but love, kindness and devotion towards his family. A true testament to the man he became. Marc and I grew up two houses away from each other from 3rd grade to senior year of high school. There were more sleepovers and birthday parties than I can count, hours of Atari marathons in his basement, seeing Michael Jordan together in his rookie year at the United Center, attending our first concert together at the Rosemont Horizon, playing basketball until midnight in Marc’s driveway lit from spotlights we precariously placed around the permitter and visiting each other at college are just a fraction of the great memories I hold. Marc was always up for adventure and had such a kind disposition. I will always honor Marc with the best and happiest memories and will think of him and his great character. You will never ever be forgotten (that’s a promise) and you are a part of who I am. May you rest In Peace.

Marcus and I became friends in C'Ville in the 1st or 2nd grade and had the good fortune of graduating together from St. Charles High School. We popped into each other's lives periodically after high school, and it was always a good time talking with him. Marcus always had a jovial and uplifting demeanor that I will surely miss. I know I will see him again because our paths would randomly cross after being separated. When that happens, I will make sure to tell him how valued a friend he was.

To his family - I simply want to confirm what you already know. Marcus was a beautiful person and someone to aspire too. He will be missed for generations but he will always live in our/my heart.

The photo is between 1973-74 - We were around 6 or 7. The face says it all... Just a happy guy and that's how I always remember him. REST IN PEACE Marcus.

Until we meet again!
