Rest In Peace Markus D. Manley

As I write this, I am seeing his smile; the one-of-a-kind glowing smile of Markus D. Manley.

To me he was a peer, a resourceful mover and shaker throughout the Long Beach creative community, a kind warm person and all-around good guy. Notice of his passing was shocking and unbelievable. Reading his Facebook wall was both heart-breaking and heartwarming. Markus was truly loved, respected, and endeared by so many people.

I am so happy to see so many articles written about him. This gives people everywhere who are far removed an opportunity to learn about his story and his impact. I have learned more about Markus in reading them. I’ve shared a few below.

My sincerest condolences go out to his entire family and friends. Markus will be missed, celebrated, and treasured forever.

As of this writing, donations are still being accepted to help Markus’ family pay for medical and memorial costs. Go Fund Me Campaign-Memorial Costs for Markus D. Manley
