Mark Daniels: DC Messenger... a positive force to those who knew him...

Mark Daniels
DC Bicycle Messenger
Alley Cat Racer
and friend to many passed away earlier this week

the news on the electronic grape vine is that Mark Daniels died of stomach cancer
from what I have heard Mark had been off the street for a few months and had been going through treatment

Mark Daniels died at the start of this week

post earlier this week
take a glance... a different photo and some comments worth reading

if I find any information out on funeral or memorial services I will certainly share

the DC Bicycle Messenger community is a family
the passing of Mark Daniels not only effects relatives by blood but also Mark's brothers and sisters on the bike

Peace to Mark and Peace to all who knew him...

Of course I spelled Mr. Daniels first name wrong in my last post... I guess it was Marc all along...
Here's a cut and paste of an email from the DC corn list with viewing and memorial service information.
I am sad to say I will not be able to attend. I know many will without me.

I stayed up late last night combing Kevin Dillard's galleries, as well as Gwadzilla's himself for photos of Marc. I found many. The most striking were shots of him racing in the finals at the NACC's out in Chicago last August. I remember Soda telling me there was probably room in the rental if I'd drop everything and come along...Wish I'd gone now.
Rest in Peace Marc. I will miss you every day I ride my bike in DC.
Thanks for the space Joel.
