marc w/ mom - his 31st birthday!

After a frantic ride (75mph) on the Capitol Beltway,
Marc made his appearance into the world at Holy Cross
hospital in Silver Spring, Maryland at 3:57am on
September 1st 1967. He was always in a rush
to get things done! Maybe he knew from the
beginning that his time was limited.

He was an easy baby I remember that he smiled a lot
- slept, drank his milk and filled his diapers with the
usual regularity of an infant.

He grew up just outside of Washington, D.C. in
Greenbelt, Maryland where he attended Center and
John Carroll Elementary. Marc worked hard to receive
his G.E.D. and then went onto graduate from the University
of Maryland with a degree in Business Administration.
He made the "Deans List" every semester but one.

Although he had a degree in Business Administration,
it seemed Marc had also developed a love for working
with computers and became more and more interested in
computer graphics.

At the time of his death, Marc was working for
Kinko's as a computer specialist. He had
worked at both the College Park & Silver Spring locations.

As a child Marc's first interest was music.
Marc's mom remembers Marc's diligent practicing
of the drums much to the neighbors... delight!?!

Although, as he grew older he
grew into quite the accomplished musician.
Over the years, Marc played in a number of bands including:
Authorized Personnel Only, The Lost Frogs, Ghost of Thom,
and Brave New World. He would also play at various
'open mic' nites, including an evening he had an chance
to sit in with local great John Previti.

His passion for music carried him to a number
of different cities all over the United States,
seeing a variety of bands, and an incredible amount of music.
These are merely a few of the bands and experiences
Marc had the opportunity to enjoy:

the Grateful Dead, King Crimson, Medeski Martin & Wood,
Phish, Pink Floyd, Jane's Addiction, Frank Zappa...
not to mention, all the great musicians
seen at the New Orleans Jazz Fests he attended.

Marc enjoyed music, but made time for sports as well!
He enjoyed playing "street" hockey, riding his bike, playing tennis,
skiing, Frisbee golf, and even played softball for a local league.

Although he claimed his football team to be the Raider's,
he was a Skin's fan too! He was also an avid Capitals and Orioles
fan attending games often. Once, while visiting his sister
Caren in St. Louis, he had the opportunity to see
Mark McGuire hit two of his 'record-breaking' homeruns!

Sadly, on March 14th, 1999 Marc was found in his home
dead of pneumonia. He was 31.

There is much to be said of a person that is able
to touch as many people as Marc did in his short life.
Those of us who were fortunate enough to be able to share
in his many and varied life's experiences will always
cherish those memories.

Marc was fortunate, in that he was able to experience
many special moments in his life. We are fortunate,
in that we were able to be part of it. All of these
different experiences helped to shape the person
we knew and loved our beloved son, brother, and friend...
