AFRO-AMERICAN MUSIC INSTITUTE CELEBRATES 31 YEARS
Francis Bruce Marion, my dad, made the final transition to the other side yesterday. He left this world, May 23rd suddenly and unexpectedly. He will be deeply missed, loved and remembered by so many!
He made his mark in this life of a person who gave without hesitation or asking of anything in return. He lived to help and heal others. He carried a pure heart of gold and his caring nature was something he couldn't hide! It gave him wonderful joy to provide for others.
His love of Jazz was also known throughout Pittsburgh! He took great pleasure in taping shows of his jazz buddies and always had a camera to capture great musical moments in life! He gave copies of the recordings out without ever asking for anything in return.
He was a loving partner, brother, uncle, father and grandfather. His love was known throughout his family and friends as pure, honest and genuine. His jovial personality made him a friend to everyone he met! He was a kind soul who loved and enjoyed life!
He had the hands of a healer and was a Chiropractor for many years. He graduated from Life Chiropractic College in 1980 and practiced in Georgia until his retirement in 1985. His healing hands continued to provide great relief for friends and family many years after his retirement.
We, his family are at a great loss. Losing a wonderful man and father is a hard reality. He was taken from us much to soon at the young age of 64. Forever in our hearts and minds he will stay! We are at peace knowing he has been reunited with his parents and beloved sister in the afterlife. With his sudden death, we were not prepared for expenses to cover a proper final service for him. We are asking for any donations to help with the cost for his funeral services. Any amount would be greatly appreciated.
I want to make it known what this money will be spent on. As those who knew my dad know that to him money wasn't important in life. Life to him was about love and kindness. He proved you can give love, time and attention without the need of money! We live in a world that requires it so the funds dontated will be for his cremation and services. We will have a longtime pastor friend of my dads to speak about the wonderful life my dad shared on this world with us!
The memorial announcements will be shared soon for all his friends and family to join in celebration of his life and love for all!
I would like to add info as well for anyone who would like to make a donation through Paypal. This option is a way to avoid extra fees for the funds donated.
