Marc Jeffrey Kaplan Obituary
Kaplan, Marc Jeffrey
Marc Jeffrey Kaplan, 57, of Scottsdale, Arizona passed away tragically on August 22, 2015. Born on September 14, 1957 in Cleveland, Ohio, Marc attended the University of Cincinnati and graduated with a degree in business and communications. He went on to become an extremely successful entrepreneur and proud owner of the Sun City Rays senior league baseball team. Marc was a loving father to his children Brian and Lauren and the most loyal friend to their mother, Marci. He was a brilliant, kind, generous, handsome, successful, respected businessman and was loved very much by his family, friends and all who knew him. His favorite pastimes included watching and attending sporting events with son, Brian, Tim McGraw concerts with daughter, Lauren, spending time and caring for his beloved dog, Angie, and just being in the presence of his best friend and lifelong companion, Marci. Marc loved doing anything and everything that had to do with Marci and his children, especially his pride and joy, grandson, Clark. He was expecting two more grandchildren and was so excited at the anticipation of their arrivals. More than anything else, Marc was a dad, a grandpa and a best friend and he will be deeply missed. He was preceded in death by his father Robert and brother Lee. He is survived by his mother Barbara, his beloved Marci, son Brian (Jill) Kaplan & grandson Clark, daughter Lauren (Luke) Gilbert, sister Marla (Brad) Johnson, brother-in-law Alan (Peggy) Lipp and nieces & nephews Alyssa & Jared Johnson, Libby Kaplan, Jordan, Kevin & Alison Lipp. Graveside funeral services will be held at 11:00 am Friday at Mt.
