Mr. Marcus Keith Morris was born Oct. 4, 1969, to Mr. Jackie Robinson and the late Ms. Verrian Morris.

Marcus was a very hard worker. He was a friend to many. He was very motivational when you needed it. He knew just what to say to lift you up if you were down. He was one of a kind. Marcus truly will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

He joined Timothy Trumpet of Truth Church under the leadership of Pastor Eddie Perdue. Marcus and Pastor Perdue developed a strong bond with one another.
