I have known Marc as a dear friend to my sons Alex and Erik. He was funny, loving and showed a zest for life that lifted all those in his presence. Marc’s sincerity and caring spirit helped the world to be a better place.

I hope the memories of Marc will help you deal with this loss and will keep him alive in your hearts for many years to come.
