Marcus worked as a Benefit Services Specialist for for the National League of Postmasters and as a 911 Emergency Response operator for the Office of Unified Communications, District of Columbia. He demonstrated great work ethic and got along well with co-workers. He was commended for his teamwork efforts.
Marcus had a generous spirit, pleasant personality, and a very charming smile. He was loved by many and his positive influence and encouragement towards others will always be remembered. He had a passion for music at an early age. As a teenager, he had a great voice and would lead many songs while singing and having fun with his friends, who he admired. Not surprisingly, later in life, he inspired his sons, who were very special to him, to pursue their musical talents. Marcus also had a wonderful relationship with his sister, and her children who were like his own, and he loved each one very much.
