Company: Department of Public Works, City of Laurel
Years of Service: 11
Comments: Marcus Colbert, 30, of Laurel passed away while working his route. Working for the Department of Public Works is a family affair for him and his family. He started working for the company in 2005 following in his father, Ralph Brent’s footsteps and his cousin, Norman hull as well. Colbert, according to his coworkers and family, “will be remembered for his infectious smile, his willingness to help everyone, and his strong work ethic—helping other crews finish their routes without being asked.” A devoted worker and energetic man that will surely be missed.
We will not forget you, Marcus Colbert.
