MARCUS, Mitchell R.


of Hingham, MA, beloved husband, father, brother, and friend, passed away on March 31, 2019 at the age of 66 following a courageous battle with brain cancer. Mitch’s exuberance, positive attitude, sense of humor, and generosity touched the worlds of all who had the gift of knowing him. He lived his life as he wanted to be remembered, leading by example, and always saying that his glass wasn’t half full, but overflowing. His enthusiasm for living was infectious; an instant smile came to the faces of all whose paths he crossed. A lifelong Bostonian, Mitch’s love for the Celtics, Red Sox, and Patriots was both unwavering and contagious. To some, he was the “Commish,” always one to organize a poker game, sports pool, or share a joke.

He is survived by his wife Barbara, daughters Jillian and Leah and her husband Victor, as well as siblings Danny and Beth and her husband Paul, and countless others whom he held close to his heart.  Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019 at 10:30am at Congregation Sha’aray Shalom, 1112 Main Street, Hingham.
