Marc C. Humes

April 27, 1971 — June 8, 2020

Marc passed away peacefully at the age of 49 on Monday June 8, 2020.

He was born April 27, 1971, in Saint Joseph.

Marc was the son of Russell and Margo Humes.

He graduated from Lake Michigan Catholic in 1989, where he played football, wrestling and track. He was also a strong member of a fraternity where he occasionally attended Ferris State University. He was in the printing business for nearly 30 years, beloved by his coworkers at Walsworth Print Group, IPC and Bowne.

Marc enjoyed spending his time fishing, golfing and cooking. He enjoyed rooting for Notre Dame, the Detroit Lions, and the Chicago Cubs.

Above all, Marc loved spending time with his friends and family. No matter where he went, Marc never met a stranger. He spent his time making friends and expressing his love for his family, all while wearing a constant smile on his face.

One of the greatest family memories of Marc was his ability to reach out to any person he met. Whether a stranger or lifelong friend, Marc was interested in whatever you had to say. He had a constant desire to get to know people on a personal level to have a genuine and meaningful conversation with them.

Marc was preceded in death by his father, Russell Humes. He is survived by his mother, Margo Humes; his brother, Scott (Dana) Humes; his sister, Tami Gage; and his twin brother, Brian (Michelle) Humes. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews, Michael (Danielle) Humes, Tyler Humes (Alivia Payne), Nick Humes (Emily Mara), Justin Gage, Lanie Gage, Max Humes, Grace Humes and Jack Humes.

A celebration of life will be hosted in honor of Marc on Friday, June 12, 2020.

Please join from 5 to 7 p.m. at Secret Garden at the Harbor, 209 W. Main St., Benton Harbor. Casual attire is requested, and if you would like, Marc would love to see you in your favorite Lions, Cubs or Notre Dame gear.
