Marcus and his wife of many years, Linda, attended Hickory Grove United Methodist Church with Bill and me for a long number of years.  Even though he spent many years in a wheel chair, it never stopped him from being involved in many activities, especially at church.  When our son was 9 or 10 years old, Marcus coached his church basketball team.  After he lost the use of his arms and hands, he learned to hold a paint brush between his teeth, and painted many ceramic items, including several Harding Rams, which he gave as gifts on occasion.  He had painted Coach Harris' win/loss record on one of the Rams, and personally delivered it to Coach Harris.  His wife, Linda, was such an encourager, and she never let Marcus give up or fail to stay busy.  She bought the kiln for Marcus so that he could do lots of painting, and see his accomplishment in painting.  We miss him!

My stepson, Scott Matthews, was coached by Marcus at Hickory Grove from his wheelchair.  He had the undying love and respect of each of his "boys".  My son was greatly impacted by his time with Marcus.  I'm sure all of them were.  There are too few men like he was, and he will live on in fond memories of all whose lives he touched.  Thank you, Marcus!

The last time I saw Marcus was at our 30th class reunion in the summer of '91.  He had donated two of the ceramic Harding Ram mascots which he had painted with a brush held in his teeth. 

There was a drawing for them and guess who was one of the lucky winners?  I still have it proudly sitting on my chester drawers.  It is something I will cherish until the day I die. 

Thanks again, Marcus, for the gifts God gave you and for sharing it with others.
