Marc was one of those super high integrity types that gave you confidence with each passing sentence that he understood the issue. I enjoyed his big giant laugh that was clearly from Louisiana. I spent many hours with Marc in the same meetings dealing with complex retail back end systems. Marc was just so smart, real. You will be missed my friend. Rest In Peace and I predict we meet up again …

Marc always lit up my day no matter how it was going. He had this way of always making you feel better. He lit up the room and never failed to make me laugh. I’ll miss trading stories about our southern friends and families. I’ll also miss having an ice cold martini at Bob’s with Marc and Rick.

Rest In Peace, Marc. I’m grateful for the time we had together. My thoughts will stay with Shannon and the wonderful family the two of you made.

Marc Brasseaux you will be missed Sir. Salt of the earth. Kind. Funny as hell. A true and trusted friend. A laugh that could fill a room and make you smile even if you weren't in the conversation. Always a smile. Always genuine. I loved our time working together and have so many memories of laughing until we were crying. I will remember you always. Rest in peace my friend.

Marc was one of the very best friends that I have ever had. I can tell you that there is nobody in the world I would rather hang out with than Marc Brasseaux. We shared so many great times together in tearful laughter eating and drinking like we were kings. I will never forget this man. The last 3.5 years of my life have been the very best. There will never be another Marc Brasseaux. Irreplaceable man. He touched my life in the most positive way and he will forever be in my heart. God bless the Brasseaux family. We love you so much Shannon, Max, and Mia. Marc, Rest in Peace my brother. I love you eternally.

I met Marc at work in 2006. He was really fun to be around with his great sense of humor and that laugh! Marc was a positive influence on me both personally and professionally. He and I would seek advice from each other. He was so smart yet so humble.

I am going to miss the extended happy hours/dinners we had at one of his favorite places, Bob's Steakhouse. Such great times with so much laughter. I consider myself very lucky that I had the opportunity of being Marc's friend. What an amazing person. He will be missed. Rest in peace my friend.

My memory of Marc spans almost ten years. I met him 2006. We became friends under some unusual circumstances but it was a great way to get to know each other. Then I met Shannon and the kids. We all became instant friends and for the next decade spent endless weekends together watching college and NFL football. We took trips together - Las Vegas, Broken Bow, Baton Rouge. We spent holidays together, our kids did trick or treat at their house every year while we waited til it was dark enough to go inside and eat red beans and rice. Marc was the master of jumbalaya - I have tried a dozen times to recreate it but it’s never the same. We watched so much LSU football at their house that I feel like an honorary Tiger. NYEve was always fun and we almost always spent it at one of our houses. I don’t know how many Friday nights we spent together at Anamias, but it had to be over 100. Dozens of cookouts in the back yard of our home while the kids swam, crawfish in the backyard of theirs while they kids kicked soccer balls. I’ve never had a couple that I felt so connected with - they were our best friends. I had never had a couple i wanted to be BFF’s with before and I don’t think i ever will again. Marc was larger than life and Shannon was his perfect match. Marc you were one of a kind and even though we haven’t spent much time together in the past few years I loved it every time I saw you. Thank you for coming to Hayden’s game last month. I’m so grateful that I got to see you and give you a one more hug. I will miss you dearly. RIP Mr Marc.

Big Smile. Bigger Laugh. Beautiful kind eyes and soul. Marc could always make me laugh like no other. He introduced me to all things Louisiana and Cajun - LSU football, the best jambalaya and the beloved Cajun Night Before Christmas!. Green and Red Zinfandel wine and Bob's Steak House will always bring memories of Marc. A loyal friend and great listener that left the world too soon. I am beyond grateful to have had him in my life.

Firstly, my sincere condolences to Shannon, Max, Mia and family for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I met Marc in 2012 and worked with him for about 1.5 years. Although this was a short period of time, he made an impact. He was extremely smart and confident, yet humble. He was focused and driven, yet always strived to do the right thing. He was a great communicator, yet an equally wonderful listener. He worked hard, yet ensured his family was always a priority.

These are all characteristics of a great leader because he was an even greater person. I’m very lucky to have worked with Marc and luckier to have gotten to know him as a friend. He will be terribly missed but not forgotten. May he rest in peace.

What a stronghold of laughter and joy this man was and will continue to be, in my own life and countless others. The Universe had a funny way of brightening my day out of nowhere when I discovered I was to be in the same room as Marc.

"Lives which have made a great stir on earth do not sink at once into the silent sleep of the tomb." - Unknown

Marc's resilience to fear, in any sense of the word, will forever be a guiding lamp for those who seek the same truth as he held- Love is an open hand, not a closed fist.

Thank you for all the rich memories, my great Cajun companion; they're of some of the happiest ones I've got stored in the vault.

Marc and I pledged together at Lambda Chi in the fall of 1987 and were initiated the next spring. He was a good friend and a fantastic person. I have many fond memories of his smile and good humor. He was a patient and thoughtful person even in the chaos of freshman year fraternity antics. I’m very saddened by his passing, but I’ll always remember him for the happy and loyal friend that he was.
