My Fellow Buccaneers and Buccaneer Alumni,
We have lost another member of the Blue Family.
Willie Marcks, a long time member and supporter of the Reading
Buccaneers and then the Alumni, serving in different capacities
along the way but always a example of the proper behavior and
character of a Reading Buccaneer, received his tap on the shoulder
to go and be with our Lord and Savior.
Rest in peace our Brother.
As Always: Part of the Crew - Part of the Ship
