Marquis A. Foreman

August 18, 1987 — December 4, 2023

Little Rock, Arkansas

Marquis Alexander Foreman, Jr., was born in Camden, Arkansas, on August 18, 1987. He was the eldest son of Tamara Jolly and Marquis Foreman, Sr. Marquis, was the proud big brother of his twin siblings, Brianna, and Bryson. Marquis, known as “Marc,” grew up in a family filled with an abundance of love.

As a child, Marc was a member of Victory Temple Church of God in Christ in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. He was a member of the Sunshine Band and VT Youth Choir, where he often was the lead singer. Marc grew up with a passion for music, dancing, and poetry. He was a 2005 graduate of Arkadelphia High School, where he excelled academically. He was also a member of the football team. After graduation, he attended Henderson State University, where he majored in Business Administration. He later relocated to Houston, Texas, where he used his business administration skills and obtained a management position. He later moved back to Hot Springs, Arkansas, where he held several positions in management.

Marc took extraordinary pride in his appearance and was well-groomed. He enjoyed going to the gym, writing poetry, and listening to music in his leisure time. It was common for Marc to brag about Iyanna. He was so proud of how hard she worked on her dancing and baking business. One of his favorite pastimes was playing video games with his son, Jayden, and brother, Bryson. He also cherished taking Kingston to Taekwondo and helping him perfect his moves. He often said that his greatest accomplishments in life were his children.

Marc was the proud father of three children. He met the love of his life, Mackenzi Davis, on April 19, 2022. They quickly grew a friendship that turned into love and were united in marriage on April 18, 2023, surrounded by friends and family. They enjoyed being geeks and weird together. He was the love of her life to the end. He was looking forward to those 50 years together. Marc loved hard and with his whole heart. His smile had the power to light rooms and melt hearts.

Marquis passed away from his earthly home on December 4, 2023, in Little Rock, Arkansas. His grandparents, Henry and Samella Murphy, and uncles, Kendall Murphy, and Bernard Bailey, preceded him in death.
