Aunt Teresa,we were so sorry for your loss Marcus was a very special man who made you very happy. Our families have you Carolyn & Joe in our thoughts & prayers. Love Ruby & all the Kapavik families

I'm so sorry on your loss of Marcus. You and he are in my thoughts and prayers.

He was a very special man. He always had a joke to tell and a smile on his face, even if he didn't feel well. He will be missed by many including myself. Wishing his family peace and comfort at this difficult time. May God Bless You all!

I was so blessed to have had Mr. Compton as a substitute teacher at China Spring. I could sit and listen to his war stories all day long. His wise advice inspired many, including me, and I will always cherish that. He will be greatly missed.

Mr. Compton was a substitute teacher of mine in High School and Junior High. He was loved by many and always had the best stories. You will be missed, Mr. Compton! A day with you was always a great one! R.I.P & God bless your family during this difficult time

I have fond memories of when Mr. Compton would substitute teach at China Spring High School. The students nicknamed him "Grandpa," but he was always fond of saying he was my uncle (my father's a freemason). The world is now short of a good man.

Mr. Compton was my favorite substitute teacher at China Spring HS. His advice to "save 13%," talks about how much he loved his wife, and his war stories will always be in my memory. However, it was his heart that touched the lives of so many students. He will be greatly missed, but he lived a full life that we should all look to as an example. I'm thankful to have known him.

Mr. Compton was the sweetest man I had ever met! I always loved hearing his entertaining stories whenever he would substitute at China Spring High School. He would always talk about his wonderful wife and how much he loved her & how he would do anything for her, "buy her any car she wants" as he would say. Heaven definitely received a very special angel. GBNF

Mr. Compton was a substitute for many of my classes when I went to China Spring, and I can honestly say he touched my life and many other students' lives in a way that many people can't! I learned more about life, love, and the value of hard work from him than from any class work, and that's what sticks with you when you graduate. My friends and I still talk about the great memories he brought us! His eyes always lit up when he told us stories about his wife. He was a great man and will...
