John Marcet Obituary

John Henry Marcet, 79, passed away at home Wednesday, March 1, 2023. Born on August 7, 1943, John grew into a man who loved God and served Him as a faithful member of the Church of Christ for many years. A favorite song of his was “I’m Going Home” by David Phelps. Married for 31 years to his loving wife Sheila, John treasured his family time. His grandchildren, who called him Pawpaw, were the light of his life.
