  • Mrac was alway good for a good laugh. Enjoyed the time he worked for us on his nights off from driving bus to deliver pizza to the people of Benton City. He would alway watch for my Uncle when he had the Benton City route and made sure he made it home safe from the market. He was definitely a people person. He will be missed by so many people.

  • To Marc’s family – I’m so sorry for your loss. I knew Marc through his father Al, working at DOE, FB, Richland and Marc bowled with us periodically in the DOE Bowling League in Richland. I meant to attend his service on Sunday but somehow missed the notice other than the death notice. I didn’t realize he “stuck it out in the Reserves” and retired. That is great news! I recall he was very patriotic.

    I would love to come down to Richland for Marc viewing but I made a commitment several years ago to not destroy the great memories I have of a person prior to their passing. Marc’s smile and gentle voice is still in my mind and will be for years to come. Lots of fun times in the Air Guard with him over the years. Sorry for your loss and will be praying for you and family.
