    Marc and I were friends for almost 55 years. We shared a lot of laughs through the years and I’m going to miss our bull sessions. I was so proud of all he accomplished at Purdue, getting his Master’s degree! Such a kind hearted soul! He’d call just to see how things were going and his concern was genuine. I’m so glad God saw fit to have my path cross with his. A truer friend would be hard to come by. True friendship is a journey without an end, I’ll never forget you buddy! RIP Condolences to his family and friends.

    So sorry to read of Marc’s passing. Marc helped get me into high power rocketry, which led me to starting a rocketry club here in Lafayette. If I ever had any questions he was always there to help, and he was very smart but managed to explain things in a way I could understand. I will miss him.

    I was fortunate enough to have Marc as an instructor during one of my classes at Purdue University. Marc was a fantastic teacher who always kept class interesting and lively. The time spent in laboratory sessions with Marc left an impression on me and I look back on them as some of the most memorable I had at Purdue. He was truly an awesome instructor and an ever better person.

    Marc and I met since 2014. He is a friendly and experienced man who is willingly sharing his knowledge and tricks with his young friends. He is a such great mentor as well. So sorry to hear Marc’s passing, and I will always remember his jokes, smiles, and winks. I will never have such a great colleague like Marc anymore. Rest In Peace.

    My prayer to Marc’s family.
