I know it had been a few years but I just found out of his death. I have to tell once again my favorite Tim Marcum story. It was December 1976 and Coach Marcum had been an assistant at my high school in San Antonio for two years. He left to coach at Ranger Jr college and was back at my high school for a recruiting trip. After talking with some of the players before school who were seniors he saw me parking my car. I was an equipment manager for three years and did not know what I might be...

A few weeks after he called me into his office and took out a ring sizer and asked be to give him my ring size. I broke into a smile and said "I get a ring too?" He said "Of course Doc, You are...

Rarely have I ever seen such a glow, a spark and enthusiasm in discussing a man as when Mitzi and Michelle spoke of their COACH. Their love of THEIR DAD will always be seen in their faces and heard in the stories they continue to tell. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family.
