    Very sad. I was acquainted with Marcus and he was a true gentleman and very much a professional. A devastating loss for family and friends and the aviation community.

    I knew him from back in the days of his being a defense lawyer on the other side of the court room. Plus his flying. I still remember his anti-Bernulli presentation.
