I am so sorry to hear about Marcus! He was so helpful to me when I was taking care of my son, Randy Cagle. If I needed his help he was always there no matter what! Randy and I both loved and appreciated him so much! He will be greatly missed! My deepest sympathy for all his family and friends.

I am so sorry for your loss! Marcus was a great person who was loved by many people! When I took care of my son, Randy Cagle, before he passed away in 2013 I knew I could call on Marcus to come and help me anytime I called him. I will miss him very much and again my deepest sympathy!

I haven't seen Marcus in quite a few years, in fact, probably since he was in his early 20's, but his obituary is so like the young man I remember! I can't even imagine the pain his family is going through. Prayers for comfort for them and to Marcus, Rest In Peace and how I wish I'd seen you more!
