I wish I would have known him a little better than I did. I'm sure he had some great storys to tell. Nothing better than hearing some of the old stories from a old Gladesman. I will remember you forever. RIP

You know if the Cops find out that it was a Mugging,there just might be a Security Law suit there.JMO

Quoted from Miami Herald:

On the night of Oct. 21, 2008, Marquis went to the Florida City Wal-Mart and suffered injuries that led to his death. Something happened to him in the parking lot. ''We don't know if he was mugged or run over or if he fell,'' Nancy Marquis said.

With six broken ribs and a head injury, Marquis refused medical care and drove himself home. He was rushed to a hospital, where he remained in the intensive-care unit until his death.

''Doctors said his injuries looked like those of someone who might have been mugged, but he still had his wallet in his pocket,'' his widow said. She said Florida City police told her they were still investigating.
