Drive, Lafayette on Thursday, August 26, 2010. Pastor Jeff Ables will officiate.
Markus spent his entire life in Crowley and had only recently moved to Lafayette. He was a great son, brother and uncle, loved by all and known for his compassion and charity. He was always grateful for the acts of kindness shown to him from others, and shared all he had with whoever was in need. All who knew him loved Markus and he will be greatly missed.
