 HONORING A LIFE WORTH REMEMBERING

Marcus Tafari Samuel Downer (23)

 July 14, 1992 - July 26, 2015

 

Marcus was a joy at birth and throughout his life. At the age of 2, he was reading fluently. He started Pre-K 3 at St. Katherine’s Catholic School and later graduated from St. Pius X Catholic School in June 2006. Marcus auditioned at Baltimore School for the Arts and was accepted in the Theatre Department. He graduated from School for the Arts on June 10, 2010. Marcus had a passion for acting and did it with fidelity.

Marcus performed in many performances under the tutelage of Kenyatta Hardison, a Music teacher at Cardinal Shehan School where Marcus was once a student.

Most people who Marcus interacted with loved his warm personality and he had an infectious smile like a ray of sunshine. My brain is like a video, constantly going back and forth through his childhood days of him becoming a man. Great memories, but a sad ending to a promising future.

Marcus life was taken suddenly on July 26, 2015
