June 15, 1960 – July 29, 2020
Marcus Richard Fedor went home to be with Jesus on Thursday, July 29, 2020. Marc was the precious husband of Julie, father to James & Keith (Alexis), Papa to Michaela, Asher and Saige. He was the beloved son of Marianne and was preceded in death by his father Robert. Marc had two brothers; Chris (Debbie) and Greg (Carol) and one brother-in-law David Crandall (Joan). He was the favorite uncle to eight nieces and nephews…now that was funny!
Marc was a friend to everyone he met, asking their name and sharing his unique sense of humor. Throughout his latest battle with cancer he asked of his friends to “keep the funny.” He received many notes and emails from co-workers and friends sharing a joke along with how he touched their lives.
Marc was born in Detroit, MI and moved to Bay Village, Ohio in 8th grade. Marc graduated from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio with a bachelor’s degree in Finance and Accounting. He was a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity. Marc started out his career at Ohio Casualty Insurance and later worked in various positions at Ernst & Young. He went on to be the CFO of Manco, Inc. in Avon, OH. Marc’s career took him and his family to Scottsdale, AZ where he worked with several companies in Financial roles. In 2015 he again moved with his wife to Greenville, SC where he ended his career as an Executive Vice President at Concentrix.
Marc enjoyed many rounds of golf with friends while he lived in Arizona, he loved the desert. Biking was also a favorite hobby in Scottsdale.
During his time in Greenville, Marc especially loved his friends at Grace Church and in the neighborhood. He had one wish on his bucket list, to go visit Israel. He and his wife checked that box in 2019 travelling with a wonderful group of Grace Church members.
Marc was ready to journey to his forever home and shared his sense of hope and peace with everyone.
For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to a home yet to come. Hebrews 13:14

I remember him arriving at Manco as our new CFO. He was immediately engaging and had a disarming sense of humor. I was most impressed with how he presented our monthly financials to the entire company, in a manner that anyone could understand. I always enjoyed working with Marc and had the utmost respect for his integrity, intelligence and work ethic. My deepest condolences to the Fedor family.

I met Marc just a very short time ago, about the time of the “big eclipse”… I hardly knew him but still hoped that he would drop by the house to watch the eclipse and being disappointed that he couldn’t make it. I noticed that Marc always was smiling was always focused on other people. He was honest and open. He would say “How are you doing?” and you could tell it was honest and sincere about it. He really wanted to know. He cared. Every time I would see him, I had an objective to ask him about himself. I tried. Honestly I would ask all sorts of questions and invariably Marc would steer the conversation back to some interest of mine. Always there was that sincere “How are you doing?”
Whatever the occasion was that brought us together the pattern was the same. Marc was always asking other people questions, getting to know them. Talking about what interested them. Laughing at something funny. Always smiling. Always fun to be around.
When he told me that his cancer had returned, I asked what I could do. He said "Pray for Julie, I know this is going to be rough for her”. At times I would ask “How are you brother?” and he would say “Not that great. I’m OK about it. I’m looking forward to heaven.” Soon he would manage to focus the conversation away from himself. He would divert first to Julie, then start asking me about how I was doing. He never focused on himself.
Marc wasn’t a big car fan, but he would talk about them with me. At some point he even talked about buying a Porsche. I wonder if it was for my benefit. I asked him one day if there was anything I could do and he said “Yea, bring that convertible over and let’s take it out for a ride.” I know he was sincere, but I wonder if he was just thinking “Brad would have a good time showing off that car, so lets do it.” Plans fell through a few times, but he kept telling me “I’m still up for it. I have morphine and I feel pretty good in the mornings.” Then he would ask "How are you doing?"

I wish to extend my condolences and prayers to the Fedor family. Marc thank you for helping me to grow personally and in my career. I will miss your sense of humor and kindness. May you leave this shore in peace, in love may you find the next, safe passage on all your travels until our final journey home. May we meet again.

Dear Fedor family,
So sorry for your loss. I am a part of Concentrix and work out of india. We had a few interactions over phone and some meetings in person. He was such a calm and composed person. After every conversation, I was like, need to learn how to keep that smile and yet solve stuff. I will forever cherish those discussions.
My condolences and May the Lord give the family strength to overcome the loss. God bless his soul.

Dear Fedor Family,
We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend, Marc. What an incredible human being God placed in our lives. I can honestly say that we were blessed by his friendship and love. Marc had the personality that made it so easy to gravitate towards him—I think it's safe to say, and others would agree, that he never met a stranger. His sense of humor and quick wit were our favorite things about him. But, he wasn't always joking around . . . he had a serious side, too. Marc was always so thoughtful and truly cared about his friends and family. We enjoyed watching him light up when talking about his children and grandchildren. He will be greatly missed and touched us in a way that he'll never be forgotten. Our hearts and prayers go out to you all during this difficult time. Rejoice in knowing you will see him again one day. Much love, Lyle and Lawna

My deepest condolences to Marc's family. Praying for you all at this time. Marc was a breath of fresh air working with him at Hubbell was such a pleasure.

Marc wasn’t your typical executive. He was personable and approachable. Before I joined the Concentrix team, Marc reached out to me on a Sunday afternoon and instead of us discussing my qualifications or the position, we talked at length about our faith and his trip to Israel! How refreshing! A few weeks ago, I asked Marc how I could pray for him, he asked me to pray for his family’s peace. I’ve prayed and will continue to pray for your peace and strength. My deepest condolences to each of you.

Marc's joining our Concentrix team was impressionable from his first day to his last day. I remember him taking the time out to sit with team members to understand their work environment as well as their work process. He made sure everyone was afforded the requirements needed that would maximize their day to day. He never missed an opportunity to pay it forward. In one of his last communications, he was letting us know that he was at peace and to not be sad. Marc will be missed. The Fedor family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Marc was a special person that could spark inspiration and positively move others wherever he was. His humor was unique and funny. He had a gift of connecting others through trust and safety. Marc will be missed and God Bless! Sending positive vibes and uplifting thoughts to family and friends.

To the Fedor family, I extend my condolences and prayers. Marc impressed me at work for his ability not to overlook anyone. He always engaged the Concentrix staff in meaningful ways. My staff members were always delighted when he would pay for one of their lunches. One of my staff members would affectionately send him snacks through the inter office mail. He will be missed at Concentrix and beyond.

Julie - We are so very sorry for your loss. I will forever be grateful for the time I had to know Marc and the things he taught me. There are so many times the memory of him and our gang at Arete creep into my every day thoughts. I love that you all included the infamous "NTWF" quote in the obituary...I was happy to see it lived on and I can literally hear and see the infectious laugh and smile that always accompanied! He touched all our lives and I hope that gives you and your family just some small amount of solace during this difficult time. You are in are thoughts and Marc will remain in our memories. xo

I loved my brother for many reasons. First and foremost because he knew how to have fun and laugh, I am still trying to learn from his example. He was also an expert in business and so I called him when I got stuck and couldn't figure out what to do next in my career. He was always gracious and helpful in with his sdvice. But most importantly, I loved Marc because he was so generous with people. Several of my friends have called me to say how much they appreciated the time and effort he put into helping them when they needed it most. I am missing him something awful right now, but I am also looking forward to seeing him again.

Really enjoyed our time together integrating a business that he had run. Marc made even the tough times fun, with his keen wit and awesome sense of humor. Marc taught me through example, that you can accomplish the most when your having fun.
Nancy and I are here if you need anything and will continue to have you in our prayers.
Miss you MARC!
