I, too, belonged to the same bereavement group as Marc and others who are posting tributes here. In fact, Marc was the first member to reach out to me, to confirm I was in the right place and to explain what was ahead of me on my journey to find inner peace. From the get go, Marc was so very down to earth and so assuring. We were among the youngest members of the group and, like me, he lovingly cared for his dear wife during her final time on earth. I was in all my glory when I discovered that Marc had been a train operator, as buses and trains are favorite topics of mine to talk about. I understand he left behind two wonderful children whom he loved and adored -- and who loved an adored him. We are all the better off for having known Marc. May he rest in everlasting peace.

Marc will be etched in forever memory... as a special member of our Bereavement Group... warm, welcoming, friendly and helpful nature... and fun spirit... We all dined out after meetings and car pooled... One time stands out when we attended and participated in 'A Murder Mystery' held at Ft. Hamilton Community Club where I'm a member. We were about 10 or 12 gals & Marc. With a table up front Marc was called upon often - throughout the 'show' - and thoroughly, totally, unabashedly LOVED IT - hysterical laughing! That memory will be with me always. And when Marc's illness was diagnosed, he confronted it bravely - determined to fight it and be there for his beloved family... he succeeded living longer than expected albeit on borrowed time. Rest in Peace, dear Marc... keep smiling and laughing with your 'family' and 'friends' in heaven! Love, Molly

I met Marc at a bereavement group. He was such an open, good person and a true fighter. He continued to attend the group despite being in discomfort and showing various symptoms. He was unfailingly optimistic and he persisted as long as he was able. He was warm and funny, laughing a lot and enjoying all our spontaneous get-togethers. He cared so much for his son and daughter.
We will all miss him.

To Adam, Deborah and family -

This is Michael Dietz in Oklahoma. I've been friends with Marc and Beth from the very beginning of their relationship. I just wanted to express my deepest sympathy to all. I also wanted to share the joy and excitement they shared with everyone when they became parents. (I think I even helped them with their plane tickets to Peru). It's comforting to know Beth and Marc are reunited, and Marc is no longer suffering. May they rest in eternal peace.

I met Marc about 20 years ago when he lived in Pennsylvania with his late wife Beth and their children. My boyfriend is his wife’s cousin. Marc was giving directions to his house and I took the phone, ready to jot them down. I was a little nervous about meeting my boyfriend’s family for the first time, but two minutes on the phone with Marc and he told me all the information I needed to know about my boyfriend. Haha! Then gave me directions to his house. From day one he had me laughing.
When I think of Marc today I remember how much we laughed. He somehow always knew the right thing to say. The thing that really stands out to me though and probably always will was the love he had for his wife Beth and the way he took care of her. He was a very loyal, loving and caring person to his wife and children. I feel sad that he’s gone and I will miss him.

Marc Harris was a wonderful man. He was a great husband, father, and family member. Marc was always a joker, and made everyone laugh and smile. He will be missed by many. At least he's not in pain anymore, and he's with his wife. God bless you, and my you Rest in Peace.

I’m Beth Harris first cousin living in California. Beth meet her devoted husband Marc sometime in the early 1980’s. At that time there wasn’t any internet. What people would do is communicate over the CB (Citizens Band) radio. Both would take part in this. One day, they arranged a meeting at a local amusement park in Brooklyn called “Buddies”.
From then on, they were a couple and soon married.
