Marcus had a love for cars, just like his Dad. He also loved to cook, just like his Mom. Marcus was an avid supporter of his family. He made sure they were taken care of in every way. He truly loved his family and loved spending time with them. Marcus traveled to other countries a lot with his family and friends. He will be terribly missed by “The Crew”, but we have so many unforgettable memories of our time together. Razorback Stadium wont’ be the same without him there cheering Dorian on, although we know he will be there in spirit. You would have never known Marcus was sick because he was always the life of the party! He enjoyed life and living it to the fullest!
