Marc was born on December 21, 1952, to C.T. and Mary Alice McKasson in McAllen, Texas. He was the youngest of four children and dearly loved his two sisters, Judith and Nancy, and his brother, Stephen.

Marc was raised in McAllen and had great love and pride for his home state of Texas. He excelled at sports in his youth and played on multiple sports teams for McAllen High School, where he graduated in 1971.

Marc served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1972-1974 in the New England Mission, headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts. He treasured his time as a missionary and spoke fondly of it throughout his life.

Marc married Natalie Bradford in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple on April 22,1975, and together they have 5 children; Jennifer, Erin, Bradford, Daniel, and Scott; and 13 grandchildren. Marc was a loving father and grandfather, and his family meant the world to him.
