Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

Marcus Alexander Gordon, age 28, left this earth on Thursday, August 10, 2017 with his sense of humor to bring laughter to the Angels, and the Lord. The son of Jammilynn (Boggs) Clouse &  Mark Clouse, Marcus was born on July 29, 1989 in Grand Rapids.

Marcus will be deeply missed by his parents, Jammi & Mark Clouse, his sister and brother-in-law, Miranda & Cody Anderson, niece Sophie, grandparents Jim & Katie Boggs, Janet & Lester McCaul, and Ron & Linda Clouse, aunts and uncles Jim & Paula Boggs, Julie & Carl Brown, Jessica Boggs, Shannon Boggs, Kelly & James Wilcox, Scott & Rhonda Lasby, Brian & Angie Clouse, Heather McCaul, and Andrew McCaul. As well as many more beloved extended family members and friends, as Marcus touched so many lives.

“So I command the enjoyment of life, because there is nothing better for a person under the sun than to eat, drink, and be glad” – Ecclesiastes 8:15 sums up what Marcus held in his heart.

Marcus’ love of life was infectious. Quite the prankster since early childhood, he had an amazing sense of humor and wit about himself. His life was lived with laughter, joy, and song. Marcus attended school in the Lakewood Public School district. He sang in the school chorus, and prior to that, he enjoyed playing his violin. Music had always been one of his passions. Marcus was also passionate about debate, and more recently, environmental issues. He went to Lansing, with Citizens’ Climate Lobby to lobby for legislation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change.

A memorial service to celebrate Marcus’ life will be held at the home of Russ and Vanessa Palmitier on Sunday, September 3, 2017 at 2pm (2823 Lee Rd., Saranac, MI 48881).

Marcus was preceded in death by his Great-grandparents, as well as s few admired great-uncles, and a great-aunt.
