What a wonderful man. Far to few men today laugh out loud. Marcus walked into a room and the whole room would end up filled with laughter. What a delight. He loved his girls and spoke of them daily. We will always remember his smile and his live for others.
The world lost a great one.

Marcus was a bright light, and he lead others into his light. I can remember times I would come into work not feeling up to it, feeling like I didn’t have the energy or the patience to deal with everything that needed to be dealt with. But Marcus unwittingly quieted such feelings within me, just by being the person that he was. He was always so energetic and up for the challenges of the day, minimizing mountainous circumstances into small hills while laughing and making others laugh with him. I would watch him be that way and feel so silly for ever thinking that every single problem was anything more than small. And I felt safe, knowing that working with Marcus meant working with a nurse who had everybody else's backs, in a physical, mental, emotional, even spiritual way. He handled everything with such a calmness, with such ease. He was not only kind to the people he worked with and the people he took care of, but he was like a mentor to them, guiding them to look at things in a more well-rounded way. He was a wise man, and a really really great person.
I’d like to add that of all the times I saw him beaming, or shaking a room with his jovial laughter, I never saw his eyes light up the way they did when he spoke about being a father. I remember being pregnant for the first time, expressing to him that I was afraid of what was to come; he was so reassuring, so relaxed, so able to convince me that parenting would be easy because of “the love” and all of the little things my future child would do that would have me falling in love again and again. He swore that it was "easy" and I believed him. As he spoke of his experiences as a parent, I saw that his heart was growing full with all of the wonderful moments he had spent watching his children grow. From that single conversation, I know that his family was so very lucky to have him…. and so was everyone that had the privilege of working with him at Our Lady of Peace. Marcus was extremely loved, by ALL.

I had the privilege of working with Marcus while I was a nurse at OLOP. I always knew it would be a good day as well as an entertaining day when Marcus was on staff. A kind and caring man, it broke my heart to hear that he was not on this earth anymore. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, his wife and children, his brother Steve and sister in law Cristin.

I had the privilege of sharing several classes with Marcus, while in the Galen College of Nursing Program. I was pregnant with my first daughter, and he made it a point to bring a snack or two, and some candy during class break. 😌😌 He loved his daughters, and shared his love for them, as he discussed how my life would be with a daughter. He acted out the different mental health diagnosis and personalities that were taught in class and had all of us laughing with tears!!! Lol! May he rest in power and in peace!!! Praying for the family!!!
