When Danny was 7 1/2 and his mom was finishing some college courses I would babysit him a couple of nights a week he and my daughter Leanne very close to the same age would play and roughhouse and he loved to roughhouse course I only knew him as Danny because he was little and that’s what his mom called him

Often we went to church a block or two down the road and then he drew me a beautiful picture
It said I love my aunt Ruby, she takes me to church where I asked Jesus into my heart

When I found out about his passing that was the instant only picture that came to my mind and I do with all my heart Danny is with Jesus in heaven
I pray for the family. There are no words that can replace a human being who is so amazing but the love of God will keep you and continue to pray for you to have comfort in the pain

I love you all so very much and will miss you until we see you again Danny

I met Marcus in St Louis 2018 when I participated in an IRB with him, his managers and Safety focal's. I was happily surprised when Marcus joined Space Launch System in New Orleans in late summer/early fall 2019 and became my superintendent. Marcus extensively shared his time, energy, kindness, compassion and knowledge with everyone. Marcus lead by challenging us all to see the bigger picture in what we are building for mankind and how we will change the future of space travel. When he walked the floor he always stopped to answer questions and interact with teams. He mentored numerous employees never walking away from anyone who reached out to him for guidance and growth. Rest in Peace Marcus Farray, you will always be missed.
