Obituary for Ronald Tyree Marks, Jr

In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial donations be made to help with Mr. Mark's final expenses.

Ronald Tyree Marks, Jr., 23, son of Carolyn and Ronald T. Marks, Sr. was born June 30th, 1995 in Kansas City, Kansas. Family knew him best as “Moo Moo”, his friends called him “RJ”, but to everyone he encountered, he was a friend and a joy to be around. Ronald attended USD 500 public schools and graduated from Schlagle High School in the class of 2013. While attending Schlagle High School, he played Varsity basketball and was a leader in the percussion section of the marching band. Outside of school, he was a percussion leader with the local Gateway High Steppers drill team. He enjoyed movies and stand-up comedy, often imitating some of his favorite comedians in casual conversations with friends. From the time he was a young child, he enjoyed music and performing for others.

After high school, Ronald attended community college at KCKCC where he spent some time on the college basketball team and dedicated many hours to community service at the Farmer’s Market. He later became a member of the custodial team, working as an employee for KCKCC. Ronald attended Pleasant Green Baptist church as a child and accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior at a young age. As an adult, he attended New Bethel Church with his mother, Carolyn.

Ronald died on November 26th, 2018, and is preceded in death by his paternal grandmother, Barbara Marks. He will be lovingly remembered by his mother and father, Carolyn and Ronald T. Marks, Sr.; his sister, Enjoli (Ben) Avila; his brother, Derrick Sims, Jr.; his maternal grandmother, Beverly Pender; his maternal grandfather, Louis Dixon; his paternal grandfather, Ronald A. (Jerry) Marks; his daughter, Raelynn Marks; his nephew, Hosea Avila; his niece, Holland Avila; and a host of cousins, extended relatives, and close friends.
