Steven L. Marcus, 63, of Ocala, Florida, loving husband of Pamella (Laipple), father of Scott Laipple (Kim Murphy) of Vineland, NJ and Reasa Marcus (Cameron Barlow) of Jacksonville, FL, grandfather to Nicole Vignola, Lauren Mills, and Charly Barlow, and great-grandfather to Logan and Olivia, died suddenly on March 27, 2021. Steve, predeceased by his parents Aubey and Marcia Marcus, is survived his siblings Susan Marcus of St. Petersburg, FL, Lynn Malloy of Hayward, CA, Jay Marcus (Jill) of Jacksonville, FL, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.

Steve was born in Philadelphia, PA and moved to Cherry Hill, NJ as a teenager.  He attended Cherry Hill West High School and then graduated from Villanova University, Class of 1979, where he was a member of the DTD fraternity.

After graduation he worked at Leidy’s Market in Blackwood Terrace, NJ, where he met Pam, his best friend and wife of 38 years.

Steve worked for the US Postal Service for 33 years, starting his career in Sewell, NJ as a rural carrier, then as a supervisor in Vineland and Swedesboro, NJ. He then relocated with his family to Jacksonville, Florida and finished his career as Postmaster of Keystone Heights, FL.  He retired in October 2019.

Throughout his life he was active in his community, coaching soccer in Mantua Township and Mullica Hill, serving as a Cubmaster, and volunteering as a fire fighter for Union Fire Company in Blackwood Terrace and Harmony Fire Company in Mullica Hill, NJ.  Steve served as a Fire Commissioner for the Harrison Township Fire District. He was active in the Citizens Emergency Response Team (CERT) in Clay and Marion Counties, FL.

He enjoyed retirement with his friends in Stone Creek, especially his time on the field with the Stone Creek softball league. His passions included traveling to places near and far, pursuing his love of scuba diving, but most of all he was happiest when spending time with his family.

Steve was known for his many activities, achievements and his career, but he was most loved for his Sunday omelets, margaritas, and gardening.

To honor his memory, donations can be made to Marion County CERT.  Checks can be made payable to MCSO (Marion County Sheriff’s Office) in memory of Steve. Please note to the left of the signature funds are to be deposited to the Stone Creek CERT account. Please send checks to: Marion County Sheriff’s Office, PO Box 1987, Ocala, FL 34478.

    It comes with great sadness to hear that Steve has passed. A friend and fellow employee at USPS, Steve worked hard and created a wonderful work place for employees. Some of the best things I remember about Steve was his smile, kind heart and commitment to family. Prayers and condolences to Pam and his family.
