He also participated in UIL for Geography, Decathlon Emerging Leaders & Entrepreneurs, and was recognized by Duke University TiP(Talent Identification Program). He volunteered at the Irving Public Library for several years and was an extraordinary gentleman. He took pleasure in his gift of creative writing and drawing. He enjoyed skateboarding, practicing martial arts, playing the bass guitar, and learning about the Japanese culture and language. Although he was soft spoken, Marquel’s words were powerful. He dreamed big and aimed high. Furthermore, he had a low tolerance for ordinary. The 18 years of his life on Earth can’t be summed up in a few words. It can be explained best by the many memories he made with all in whose path God allowed him to cross. Marquel departed this life on Tuesday, January 7, 2020.
