1995 – 2014
LEWISTON — Marcus Christopher Bennett, 19, of Lewiston, went home to be with his Lord and to meet his father and twin on Sunday, Dec. 7, in Lewiston.
Marcus was blessed to have two sets of parents, April and Coley Barker of Lewiston and Jackie and David Bennett, who loved and nurtured him throughout his life. He was born in Norway on May 26, 1995.
An amazing young man, Marcus had many talents and aspirations. He loved art — a talent he inherited from his father, videography, photography and hanging with his best friends, Dale “Cannoli” Cannuli and Jeff “Fafa” Lamar.
He was a graduate of Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School in 2013 and attended the University of Maine at Augusta in 2013 and 2014, and looked forward to his many conversations with Percy Turner about his future plans. He also enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps, acing his ASVABs, and looked forward to attending the ROTC program in fall 2015.
Marcus loved times spent with his grammy, Kathy Bennett, taking walks, baking or spending time in the garden.
Family was very important to Marcus and he loved going fishing, camping and mining with them. One of his favorite memories was going to an MMA fight and the Five Finger Death Punch concert with his dad, Coley. He made sure to pass on to his little brother, Coley Jo, his knowledge and love of martial arts, knife collecting and having a general respect for others.
The world mourns the loss of this beautiful soul while Heaven celebrates its gain.
Marcus is survived by his mothers, April Barker and Jackie Dickman Bennett; his fathers, Coley Darius Barker and David Bennett; a sister, Brianna Green and husband, D’Ante, of Texas; a brother, Coley Josiah Barker; a niece, Aalaiyah; a nephew, Zachary Green; and grandparents, Gail Lussier of Mechanic Falls, Phyllis Barker of South Paris, Kathy Bennett of Bryant Pond and Ray and Ellen Lussier of South Paris.
He was predeceased by his biological father, Christopher Wells; his twin; and grandfathers, Richard Bennett and William Barker.
