Chuck Marquis, ’64, 1946-2018



Marquis, Charles Albert

Oct. 12, 1946 - April 12, 2018


My dear husband Charlie Marquis passed away in his sleep on April 12, 2018 after a long battle with congestive heart failure and COPD made more difficult from exposure to Agent Orange.


He is survived by his brother, Bob Marquis (wife Debbie); niece, Michelle Marquis Paz (husband Jon); son, Matt Marquis (wife Denice); and daughters, Christen and Amy; three grandchildren; and his beloved dachshund, Ziggy; and many friends, especially Ralph Williams who served with him in Viet Nam.


It has been an honor to be married to the former "Head of the Pig Committee", (Wild Game Feed) go easy my love! Petra Gilbert Marquis.

I knew him as Charlie, Alpha Beta early 70’s was the place we began our friendship, I have thought about him often throughout the years. Our paths crossed again one day in the early 80’s it was fantastic to see him again. I truly loved him ! he was a wonderful friend and boss . My heart aches for Bobby to loose his brother, the sorrow is so deep for his children and grand children who will not have his beautiful smile in their life any longer . You will be forever missed but never forgotten . Good bye my dearest friend

I remember Charlie (never new him as "Chuck") I believe beginning with our junior high years at Nicolas. Charlie and I had a few classes together, but otherwise traveled in different circles at SHHS. I have to say that I was sufficiently impressed by him whenever our paths did cross that I was truly saddened to learn of his passing. From his obit I learned that we shared a birthday and both served in Viet Nam - likely at app. the same time. Looking back now, I wish I had known him better. Rest in peace, Charlie. You and your family will be remembered in my prayers.

I remember Chuck plain as day, when he stood with his buddies down at McDonald’s on Euclid near Orangethorpe, 1961. He was a handsome guy. We weren’t friends, but I remember, and it doesn’t seem that long ago. -- Paul Saevig, ‘67
