Marcus Cole Mosby was born on December 9, 1987 in Lancaster, Texas to Derwin and Tina Mosby. At an early age, Marcus became a fixture in his community via youth sports programs, church and school. He soon proved to be a talented student athlete that would go on to inspire young people inside and outside of the classroom.

Marcus began his secondary education in the Lancaster Independent School District where he excelled socially, academically and in athletics. He was later was recruited to Bishop Dunn High School where he enjoyed many successes as the starting varsity quarterback, including 1st Team All State, All District and honored as the 6A MVP Quarterback.

Upon graduation, he signed with Southwestern College in Winfield, Kansas and attended on a football scholarship. Marcus eventually chose to attend Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches, Texas to pursue his interests in coaching and athletic leadership. There he would become a mentor for Fellowship of Christian Athletes, a volunteer for the Boys and Girls Club and pledged a lifetime of service to the Iota Mu Chapter Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. In 2011, Marcus earned his Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology, achieving one of his major milestones on his quest to work with student athletes.

After committing to his craft by serving as a coaching assistant at various schools, Marcus began working for Boude Story as the Physical Education teacher and Athletic Director. He described it as “the best job ever” and every day he looked forward to working with students, including countless personal hours of mentoring and coaching athletes at their feeder school, South Oak Cliff High School.

Marcus or “Coach Mosby” as his students called him, wore many hats—son (Marc), brother (Bo Bo), uncle (Uncle Bo) and friend (Mosby). Most of all, he was a loving and gentle soul who was selfless with his time, family, friends and the Oak Cliff community. Quality time with loved ones meant everything to him. He loved watching sports with the family, traveling, date nights and just about any and all shenanigans with his friends, affectionately known as the “360 crew.”

Marcus is survived by parents Tina and Derwin Mosby, his “favorite sister” Uneeta Palmer (Cecil), niece-in-love (Cecilia) and nephews (Nyne, Noble and Nevin)- who were his pride and joy. He also leaves behind loving grandmothers, Leacie Mosby and Ola Donalson, fiancé-to-be Shuntrell Miles, along with several aunts, uncles, cousins and friends to cherish their memories.

"It's hard to put in words how sorry I am for the loss of Marcus." He left us at far too young of an age, but he left behind an impressive legacy. He is being missed by all and never forgotten. "Such a gentle soul." Continued prayers for you and your family. 🙏🏽

A special memory of Marcus when he was the ring bearer in my wedding on November 21, 1998.

Once again all the people gathered and filled the stands. Not to cheer you on while you played on the field, not to support you while you coached and pushed kids that you loved to the next level, but to praise, worship and give God thanks for allowing a life such as yours to cross paths with ours. I'm going to miss your friendship and your perspective of life, but because our paths crossed, I will not miss nor forget the impact you have made on my life as a coach and a man, I will forever cherish it.

Thank you God and Thank you Coach Mosby

Sending my condolences to everyone near and far to Marcus! I remember first meeting him on one of his Langston trips with Keagan to visit Brianna and Jenn. Lots of laughs and love as I forced myself to be an honorary member. I pray for everyone’s healing to begin when God says it’s time.

Man I truly miss you bro. These past few months we were able to talk and relate. I Love you bro, you was a Good Genuine Guy with nothing but good intentions to to your family, friends, and kids in community. I’m glad I was able to give you your flowers while you were here and you gave me mines. I hate I can’t be there to lay you to rest bro but I’m in the Hospital. I will forever cherish our last physical memory working out at LA fitness. Before leaving you gave me a hug as you always do and said I Love you bro. I will forever cherish that moment and our Last talks. REST IN PEACE bro and I mean that.

Wow, this is hard to write. Marcus, we have had many memories over the years from growing up and running the halls of LHS to you and Kegan’s random weekend trips to visit Jenn and I at Langston to life after college and the Mavs game! You are definitely gone too soon, but I pray that you are now at peace. You have inspired our youth, and your legacy will live on within all of us you have impacted.

I am praying for your family, Shuntrell, your close friends, and the LHS Class of 2006. Until we meet again, my Friend. Love you Forever,

Brianna Bolden

I am grateful that Marcus and I, as a substitute teacher, were able to reconnect at Boude Storey. My joys will be greater and my life will be fuller because of the moments we shared. My family and I are extending our deepest sympathies to the Mosby family.
