Killed by gun April 11, 2001 at age 22

Marcus worked as a computer tech. He loved to sing (rap). He entered contests in which he won first place. His favorite pastimes were football and basketball. He played football for Jefferson High School. Marcus was named Byrd One by everyone who knew him. He was outgoing and known by so many. He was well liked and respected by Officer Brooks of the Newton St. Police Department. Marcus worked from the time he was 12 years old to his passing. We miss him very much. He meant so much to his family and friends. Thanks for caring.
