Skip to comments.Lloyd Marcus, Unhyphenated American: The Complete Obituary
Posted on 09/11/2020 7:18:22 AM PDT by Kaslin
Suddenly stricken by a pulmonary embolism, Lloyd joined his Lord and Savior the day after he and his devoted wife, Mary Ann Milliken Parker Marcus, celebrated their 43rd wedding anniversary. In the previous week, the couple had returned from campaigning on the West Coast. Tests revealed no presence of Covid-19.
In addition to his beloved wife Mary, Lloyd leaves daughter, Lisa Maria Marcus (Roni) and son, Timothy Billy Parker (April), as well as granddaughter, Moire Parker.
Lloyd was preceded in death by his parents, Rev. Dr. Lloyd E. and Rodell (Miss Tillie) Jackson Marcus Jr., as well as his younger brother, Vernon Marcus.
Lloyd is survived by one sister, three brothers, five sisters-in-law, three brothers-in-law, three aunts as well as numerous nephews, nieces, cousins, and countless friends. Often those closest to Lloyd called him by the family nickname of Peanut, and they, with all those who loved Lloyd, will forever mourn the loss of his giant smile and warm wisdom that was always delivered with unconditional acceptance.
A recent Daytona Beach News-Journal article recounts how at 14, Lloyd's father took him to the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC, where they attended the historic Civil Rights rally highlighted by Martin Luther King. Jr.'s I Have a Dream speech. Father and son had lapel pins reading, Freedom Now. The inspired youngster declared, I'm not taking this button off until we are free. Exemplifying that determination and dedication, Lloyd saw his father break the color barrier in the Baltimore City Fire Department and be named Firefighter of the Year twice.

Rest in peace, Mr. Marcus.
A “sometimes” poster here on FR.
I hope his handle (lloydmarcus) is archived and placed in a suitable HoFame.
I could always find the time to read an article written by Lloyd Marcus.
RIP Lloyd Marcus
So sad. RIP Lloyd. Thoroughly enjoyed him at the Freeper convention/ National Tea Party years ago. He will be missed on FR.
Thank you for informing us of his passing. Enjoyed his posts. Prayers for all who loved him to be strong and sustained by the good memories.
Thanks for posting this. I always enjoyed his columns and appreciated his courage.
Very sad, we have lost a great American.
R.I.P. I always read Lloyd on American Thinker and always appreciated what he had to say.
I have met Lloyd Marcus at a Tea Party Express event at the Minnesota State Capitol. A happy warrior and a brother in Christ. See you at the Banquet Table, Lloyd.
He died a couple of weeks ago. Very sad - he had lots of a rare quantity - common sense.
He was a unique and dynamic artist and patriot.
How about Lloyd Marcus on the FR Memorial Wall, Jim and John?
We lost one of our great ones...prayers for his family and loved ones...
