Marc Augustus Casillo, 38, of Anchorage died Sept. 28, 2009, at his residence. A memorial service will be at noon Saturday at St. Patrick's Catholic Church, 2111 Muldoon Road. Deacon Mick Fornelli and the Rev. Bradley Brisson will officiate. Marc was born Nov. 25, 1970, in Rochester, N.Y., to Nunzio "Augie" and Kathleen (Buckmann) Casillo. He moved to Alaska with his family in 1973 and attended Abbott Loop Christian School. He graduated from Wasilla High School in 1989. He was employed by the State of Alaska as a systems programmer I. Marc enjoyed working with computers, but will be remembered for not liking camping. His family wrote: "Flash/Frash/Frashii was an avid gamer and computer guru known around the world. His kindness and generosity were a strength to many and his wit was second to none. There wasn't a stray (person or animal) that he didn't want to adopt. He loved to cook, cook and cook and shop. He was a devoted husband, father, and mentor who could not give enough! He dearly loved his family and cared for them. He will be sorely missed." Marc is survived by his wife, Sandi of Anchorage; his stepson, Bryce Mahn of Anchorage; his parents, Augie and Kathleen Casillo of Canastota, N.Y.; his sisters, Kelly Schrage of Elmira, N.Y., and Nicolle Findlay, Canastota; his grandmother, Jesse Buckmann, Lima, N.Y.; his mother-in-law, Skye Nightsong, Dothan, Ala.; and his adopted brother, John Fulton of Anchorage. Arrangements are with Cremation Society of Alaska, www.alaskacremation.com.
