Marc A. B. Nied
AIKEN, SC AND
NORFOLK, CT - Marc Alexander Ball Nied died unexpectedly in Aiken, SC on February 20, 2017. He was born in 1960 in Summit, NJ and raised in Bernardsville, NJ. He attended the St. James School in Hagerstown, Maryland and Washington College in Chestertown, MD and graduated from Hunter College in NYC. More recently, he had been awarded his Master Gardner Certification.
Marc lived in Norfolk, CT and Aiken SC. He was a lifelong equestrian. As a child, he competed in dressage events, hunter-jumper competitions, and point-to-point races and hunted with the Essex Fox Hounds. He particularly loved fox hunting and during his adult life was involved with the Aiken Hounds, the Camden Hunt, where he had been awarded his colors, the Old Chatham Hunt Club, and the Saxonburg Hunt. He also followed beagles and bassets with the Sandanona Hare Hounds.
Marc's energy and enthusiasm were contagious and engaged those around him. He was passionate about gardening and garden design and in recent years had made an annual pilgrimage to the Chelsea Flower Show in London. He loved antiques, bridge, and animals, having bred two litters of labrador retriever puppies
Marc was generous of spirit and often one of the first to volunteer to help out. His contributions to silent auctions were legendary and helped raise funds for the not-for-profit organizations he supported. He was known for his energy and enthusiasm, his quick wit, his easy smile, his brilliant blue eyes, and his dapper appearance. He was a gentlemen and has gone away too soon.
Marc was predeceased by his father John, and his brother Ted. He is survived by his mother Barbara, of Savannah, GA, his brother Kenn and his wife Deborah, daughter Olive, and step-daughter Lydia Lutz, of Olympia, WA, his godson Henry Stanton, of NYC, his beloved 13-year old Labrador Retriever named Sapphie, and many dear friends. Marc was a member of the Church Club (NYC), the Green Boundary Club (Aiken, SC), the New England Society (NYC), the Norfolk Country Club (Norfolk CT), and the University Club (New York City). Services will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider a donation in Marc's name to the National Sporting Library (nationalsporting.org) or the Countryside Alliance Foundation (www.countryside-alliance).
