Moved to Oregon in 2006 and purchased 5 acres on the Salmon River. His intentions were to retire and fish his life away in leisure. He got bored quickly and realized the need for Firefighters and Medics in the Otis area. Marc has been with the fire department for 11 years now and loves every minute. He loves Christmas, really, really loves Christmas but realized that Lincoln City did not have an official Santa that kids could come and see. Most parents had to drive into the valley and spend a ridiculous amount of money for pictures. He paired up with The Christmas Light Guy on Holmes Rd. and his Santa persona was born. He has been making a winter wonderland on Holmes Rd ever since.
Hobbies would include gardening and making Halloween and Christmas props. Working for Pacific View Memorial is just another way of helping his community. Marc has found the staff at Pacific View Memorial to be warm, caring and devoted to their profession.
