Marcus spent his early years in the home of his ancestors, in Muirkirk, MD. He and his family relocated to Laurel, MD in 1995. He was educated in the Prince George's and Anne Arundel County Public School Systems. He received his High School Diploma from Glen Burnie High School in 2008.

He was confirmed under the leadership by the late Reverend Dr. Bruce F. Haskins and rededicated his life under the leadership by Reverend Dr. B. Kevin Smalls. He served on the Jr. Usher Board. He also attended Church School, Vacation Bible School and church services as well. Marcus began walking at the age of 8 1/2 months, following his father's every footstep. As a toddler he was fascinated by playing with his family’s ears to soothe himself to sleep along with his pacifier. He always cried for his older sister Turkessa, whenever she would leave the house. He also loved to know his father's work schedule so that he could be mischievous at home. Whenever Marcus and his younger sister Chante' had their disagreements she would sit on him or give him a left hook. He loved Strawberries (Starburst candy). When his mom would pick him up from day care the first words out of his mouth were, "Mom what do you have for me?" When he learned how to use the telephone, he would call his cousin Risshard (Richard) every Saturday morning at 7:00 a.m. They always looked forward to seeing each other along with their cousin Justin. When he started elementary school, he met William (Will) Adams and they became best friends. He also became good friends with David Weems, Jr. They played football, went rolling skating and attended other activities together. As a youth and teenager, he played football and basketball for the Laurel Wild Cats and played football for the Laurel Hurricanes. He played offense and defense, but his favorite position was quarterback. Marcus also played little league baseball. Marcus was a devoted father of Kamari. The summer of 2017 they traveled to Disney World. He loved spending time with his family, was very helpful and attentive to his parents and sisters. He adored his nieces and nephews and always played with them and nurtured them. He would always encourage his niece Jurnee to do her best in school. He was a people person, always smiling and meeting new friends along the way. Marcus was always known to walk to his destinations. One of his favorite stops in his neighborhood was the Exxon gas station, which he later named "My Exxon." Marcus had a caring heart, i.e. when traveling with his mom on Rt. l in Beltsville, MD, he saw a homeless man and they stopped so that Marcus could give him a monetary gift. He would give the garbage men cold bottles of water on hot summer days and shovel snow in his neighborhood and the surrounding community. Marcus was affectionately known as Noo, Marty and Party Marty. He was a avid Dallas Cowboys fan. He loved music, especially Oldies but Goodies, Rap and R & B.
