Marcus was my trainer at Lamers bus line and him and I started out on the wrong foot but we reconciled and he said he always call lady's young lady. He was a very nice and happy guy always talked his daughter and how proud he was of her. You will be missed Marcus God bless you and your family and May God send a comforter to your household

I was so sorry to hear this. He was a great coach. He pushed my son and daughter to be the best they can be. He even had my other son who was to young to help out. I could really see he cared so much for all the kids. Best wishes to his family and friends.
