Marcus M. Burgess

Marcus Maurice Burgess, born Nov. 15, 1958, in Richmond, passed away suddenly on Monday, Sept. 14, 2009, at his home in Henrico County at age 50. Mr. Burgess formerly resided in Stafford County.

Survivors include two sons, Marc Jr. and Ricky, both of North Carolina; his stepmother, Marie Maurice Burgess, a sister, Shannon Williams, and a niece, Michaela Williams, all of Stafford; and numerous friends and other relatives. He was preceded in death by his parents, Will Burgess and Hazel Burgess.

Known for his love of all things Harley-Davidson, Mr. Burgess was employed by the city of Richmond for many years, but will forever be remembered for his role as loving and dedicated caregiver to his mother during her final years as she battled terminal cancer. He was loved so much and will be missed by many, but we are so happy to have our very own "Hell's Angel" watching over us from heaven.

Services will be private. The family wishes to express sincere thanks to Steve Peterson and Adrienne Young-Battle for their loving and caring support during this most difficult time.

In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may take the form of donations to Capital Hospice, 9300 Lee Highway, Suite 500, Fairfax, Va. 22031-1207.

Mullins and Thompson Funeral Services, Fredericksburg Chapel, is in charge of arrangements. Condolences may be sent to mullins thompsonfredericksburg .com.
