Dear David and Jim, I am thankful for the long life of your dad. Not only did he deliver thousands of children but he was always attentive to his family's, friends' and patients' needs. He delivered my two healthy children, Matthew and Kara. Thank you, Doctor. Growing up in the neighborhood, I will always remember his smile and his love of Pecan Pie. Rest in Peace. Marcia

Dear David,Jim & Family, We were blessed to have the wonderful parents we had. Your Dad healed our bodies and mine the houses. Your Dad always recognized me when he was walking at TC. And would always ask about my brother John and his family. His mind was so sharp. God was truly good to all of us. Happy memories are the best.

I am so sorry to hear of Dr. Marks' passing. I am 73 years old and when I lived in East Chicago as a child he was my doctor. I really liked him. He would always haul out this box of plaster figures and I could take my pick. When I saw his picture in the paper this past summer in celebration of his upcoming 103rd birthday, I recognized him before I even saw his name and it had been over 63 years since I last saw him. Again, my sincere condolences to all your family.

Dr Marks was one great doctor. I think of him quite often. Due to him, I'm a cancer survivor but most important he is now at peace with God. He had a long good life at doing what he loved the most. Thank you for my life and my daughter.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
