Marc passed peacefully to the next plateau in his spiritual life on July 8 at home in San Francisco. Born in Santa Clara, Cuba, he arrived in Florida during the turmoil of Castro's regime. In 1979, Marc moved to San Francisco and lost his heart to the city.

Over the years, Marc befriended many people, and if one's worth is measured by the love one leaves behind, he truly was "the richest man in town." Marc loved country music and spent most of his free time boot scootin' and dancing with the Gold Rush team. However, his first love was clogging.

Marc is survived by his mother and father, Zeida and Pedro; sister and brother-in-law, Zeida and Manuel; his friend of 25 years, Ric; his cat, Troy; and many, many friends who will miss his love and beautiful smile.[1]
