MARKS--Richard, 68, passed away on October 15, 2010. He is remembered with admiration by many friends from City High in Iowa City, to Harvard College and Medical School in Boston, to St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center in NYC. An extraordinary surgeon, he earned the esteem of his colleagues and the gratitude of his patients. His genuine passion for medicine was rivaled only by a devotion to family. Richard is loved and honored by his wife of 38 years, Roni; Aunt Marge and Uncle Jack Demitroff; cousins John and Anne, Amy and Heidi; children Michael, Rebecca and Joanna; grandchildren Emma and Jackson. A memorial service in celebration of life is planned for Saturday, November 20, 2pm at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center 1000 Tenth Avenue, NYC. Forever in our hearts, Roni, Michael, Rebecca and Joanna
