I remember the first day i met marcus at amazon... i was having a bad day and he helped me. Ever since then we'd been close. Having lunch together hanging out he even considered me a close friend in the short time we were working there. Sadly he was terminated from amazon and i havent seen him in person since then however we kept in touch. I contacted him on christmas 2021 wishing him a merry Christmas when he broke the news to me that he was in the hospital. That was the last time i ever heard from him.after trying to get in touch for all this time I just found out what happened today and i'm heartbroken. He may have looked intimidating on the outside but he was such a good man on the inside. My heart goes out to the family. I'm going to miss you marcus.
