Marc graduated from Clifton High School in 1982. He attended William Paterson College and later finished his Bachelor’s Degree at Indiana Tech University. He was in the process of pursuing his Graduate Degree in Theology at the University of Dallas. Marc started his career as a graphic designer for Reprotech, Inc. His career flourished as he contributed to the success of many companies, including, LP Thebault, Bowne & Co, Venture and Fiserv. His 19 years with Bowne & Co afforded he and his family the opportunity to live in other places, including Granger, IN and Southlake, TX. He then followed his passion for theology and helping those in need by leaving the corporate world and joining Catholic Charities of Fort Worth as the Director of Parish Relations and Social Ministries. He was employed there for 2 ½ years. When Marc put his mind to something, he gave 110%. Marc was best known for being first to step up and help others. He lit up every room he walked into. His spirit of adventure led him to be an explorer of food, hobbies and church/community activities. Marc had a gift for music, whether he was playing his guitar, singing or attending concerts of all genres of music. His other interests included the DFWBMW motorcycle club and Grace Garden. Faith played an important role in Marc’s life. He studied and achieved the role of Stephen Minister, and was in the process of becoming a Deacon in the Catholic church. He was also a Eucharistic minister and lector as well as involved in many other church committees. He was an amazing husband who put his wife first. He always made sure she was on board with his adventures and his thinking outside the box. He was born to be a father. He was deeply involved in his daughter’s lives from attending school musical concerts and dance recitals, girl scout father/daughter weekends and being on the “chain gang” when his daughters cheered for football. Marc is survived by his wife, Maryellen Dabal, and his daughters, Kim Dabal and Theresa Dabal. He is also survived by his mother, Gloria Klimaski Dabal of Port St. Lucie, FL and his older brother, Gregory Dabal, of Mendham, NJ.
