July 16, 1996 - September 03, 2021

We created this memorial to celebrate the life of Marcus Paul Kalei Segedin. The stories, comments, pictures, videos, and memories collected here will offer us great comfort. No gifts or flowers please - your additions to this Memorial are the greatest gift. Thank you.

Marcus was the little kid who made us remove spiders from our house rather than kill them, and who protected his little sister at the top of the playground slide.  He loved animals, especially his many cats.  He liked to draw fierce dragons, build with blocks, and make sand castles on the beach.  He later became adept at chess, and played classical piano.    In high school, he was the procrastinating student who somehow always...  see more

    Too young to remember
    When I saw a cloudy face
    Gushing warm and smiling
    Each word left a trace
    Who was blowing pretty sounds into my ears
    Tracing me with little tears of joy

    Later faces weren’t so loving
    I did what I...  more

    I grieve for your collective loss of a beautiful young man, a son, stepson, brother and friend. He left this planet far too soon, creating a chasm in his wake. Reading the posts about him brought me to tears, and I wish I had been able to talk to him...  more

    So much love for my sweet boy Marcus. Coaching has so many rewards, but it is a labor of love...but coaching Marcus and being a beacon for him was pure joy. There wasn't anything I would not do for him ~ he gave so much more than he received. Marcus...  more

    When I arrived at Kent Middle School in 6th grade, I was an awkward, lanky kid who liked to play Age of Empires. You were too, and we quickly bonded over our individual quirkiness, various hobbies, and of course our mutual love of a good debate. I was...  more

    Marcus, you were a second older brother to me growing up. Even though I was younger, you always would offer to include me when you and Anders would hangout. I remember all the family dinners we would have, and the pounds of pasta we would eat before...  more

    Marcus, I’ve been struggling the past couple of weeks with what to write. I can’t seem to get what’s in my head down on paper so instead of trying to find the right words, I figured sharing some of my memories of you would be best.

    I hadn’t...  more

    Hey Marcus, thinking back to Bacich, Kent and Redwood, I'm reminded why all the photos of us together were at the beginning or the end of MTB races. You were always so far ahead, I could never keep up on the trail! Even in college when I briefly visited...  more

    Marcus my brother. During our time growing up you were my best friend. Starting in kindergarten all the way through when we parted ways to go off to college it felt as though we were attached at the hip. I remember playing computer games when we were...  more

    Marcus, it seems like only yesterday that you, your mom, Nina, Anders, Leify and me were meeting AGAIN (it must have been a Tuesday!) at California Pizza Kitchen. You were like my third son. I loved how our families celebrated together the (many)...  more

    Marcus - I wonder if you know how much you were loved? I feel as if in reading the wonderful comments written to honor you here that I am getting to know the real you for the first time.

    Dearest Marcus,
    You were such a precious baby. We all adored you. As a toddler I remember you as an inquisitive active participant in nature at your Grandpa and my home. Your parents used to keep you in what they referred to as a “ zone” just to...  more
