Obituary

SPOKANE - Longtime Montana resident Marc McKerrow, 44, died June 18 in Spokane, of complications from a nocturnal seizure.
His memorial service is 1 p.m. Saturday at Plymouth Congregational Church in Helena, 400 S. Oakes St. Cremation has taken place at Hazen & Jaeger Funeral Home in Spokane.
Our beloved son, brother and father passed away unexpectedly in his sleep on Friday, June 18, 2010, in Spokane, Wash. He passed away of complications from a nocturnal seizure, a condi-tion he battled for years.
Marc always wanted to help others. He was challenged by a head injury that prevented him from realizing his dream, but his life and his life's story helps all of us. He was proud to have had his complicated story told in the film "Prodigal Sons," which followed his journey to discover his birth mother, Rebecca Welles, the daughter of Orson Welles and Rita Hayworth.
Marc often used the phrase "body, heart and soul" to describe his entire being. The many people who loved Marc take comfort in the fact that Marc's body, heart and soul have now found peace.
Marc is survived by his son, Colton; daughter Kelsie and son Connor; his mother, Carol; sister Kim; brother Todd; and aunt Jan Haima. He was surrounded by a loving McKerrow family, including Uncle Glenn, Aunt Lea, Uncle Gordon, Aunt Kathy, Aunt Kathleen (deceased); and his cousins Scott, Andy, Mike, Susan Fuentez, Jim Ferguson, Jeff Ferguson and Joel Ferguson.
Preceding Marc in death was his beloved father, Loren E. McKerrow.
The family suggests memorial gifts to a charity of the donor's choice. For those wishing to help raise awareness of brain injury and mental illness, there is a foundation established in Marc's name at marcmckerrowfoundation.org; or the Center for Mental Health Foundation, Helena Care House, P.O.
