Alexander E. Marks, Cocalico senior, musician, dies at 17
Alexander Evan Marks, 17, of Reamstown, passed from this life on Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2013, after a two-year battle with depression.
Born in West Reading, he was a Cocalico High School senior and an intern with Clair Global, Lititz. Music was Alexander’s passion and playing the drums with his band, "The Pause," brought him the most joy in this life. He also enjoyed fishing in Canada, card and video games and watching movies with his family. Alexander expressed his faith in Jesus Christ through his participation in St. Paul’s Band of Brothers, Praise Team, and sharing God’s love with his smile and compassion. Surviving are his parents: The Reverend Kirk R. and Deborah A. (Lockwood) Marks, Reamstown; sisters: Emily, Philadelphia, and Margaret, at home; paternal grandparents: Arlan R. and Raedell M. (Ammerell) Marks, Temple; maternal grandfather: Arthur Lockwood, Kutztown and aunts, uncles and cousins. He will also be lovingly missed by his church family, fellow band members and many friends.
A service in celebration of Alexander’s life was held from his church home, St. Paul’s Evangelical Congregational Church, Reamstown, Oct. 14 with The Rev. Jeffrey Byerly officiating.
Contributions in Alexander’s memory may be made to the Memorial Fund of St. Paul’s E. C. Church, P. O. Box 275, Reamstown, PA, 17567.
Good Funeral Home & Cremation Centre, Reamstown, is humbled to be chosen to assist and support The Marks Family through this tragic loss. For online condolences, visit goodfuneral.com.
