Killed by gun July 2, 1998, at age 28

Marc Ralph Fitzsimmons, whose first name, Marc, means war-like one and whose second name, Ralph, means swift wolf, counsel wolf – a brave advisor, was my oldest and only son.

Marc will always be remembered by his family as a person who loved God, family, friend, and neighbor. He was a vibrant and spirited individual who was always eager to learn and was a model son, a gifted individual, and a genuine friend. He was an avid student of metaphysics. May Marc always serve as a beacon to let God’s light shine through.

Marc always reminded me that there are three sets of mental fetters we must give up if we want to truly be free: judging, comparing, and needing to know why.
