Marcus was a very devoted son, brother, father, uncle and friend.  During Trent’s younger years, Marcus coached many of his ball teams and later shared his love for the outdoors and introduced Trent to duck hunting.  Marcus spent many hours attending cheerleading and dance competitions with Shelby and enjoyed traveling around the state to watch his nephews play ball. Marcus loved sports and felt blessed to have the opportunity to coach his nephews on several teams. He also touched the lives of many other young people as a coach. 

A few of Marcus’s favorite things were the Georgia Bulldogs, duck hunting, Holcomb’s Bar-B-Q and flip flops.
