Marc was my cousin, childhood friend and first cohort. We grew up together in the early years. Marc and I attended kindergarten together and, since my Mom worked, we both went to Marc's house for lunch, naps, and mischief. We tried not to run through the house, but we were often chased outside where we could not disturb the elderly guests. If we behaved, Marc and I were rewarded rare TV time with no sound (might disturb the elderly ladies). Playing with Marc and Leigh at their house and our farm are part of my earliest happy childhood memories.

He was a great guy to work with. Only knew him for a year and still he touched our heart. He shared pictures of his family with us and talked a lot about his wife, daughters, son and grandchildren. He will be missed.
