Krominga. He grew up in Forest City, Iowa. He graduated from Forest City High School
in May 2007. Marcus spent approximately 15 years working at River Bend Farms of
rural Forest City. On October 20, 2016 he welcomed his beautiful daughter Kyla Mae
Curry into this world. Kyla was the light of his life.
Marcus was a devoted father. Some of his favorite activities to do with Kyla were playing outdoors, watching movies, listening to music, rocking her to sleep and snuggling.
When he wasn’t spending time with Kyla, he enjoyed boating, snowmobiling, riding
motorcycles, hiking, farming, cats, basketball, and any outdoor activity. He liked
spending time with his family and friends. Family holidays and traditions were very
important to him. Marcus was a true Husker fan. He will be deeply missed by his
friends, family, and all who knew him.
