If this post is not allowed, I completely understand.
I am devasted beyond words and I’m just asking that community here share his story.
A go fund me is linked below, even $5 would help, or just share it, it would mean a lot to me and my family.

He was my brother, working hard as he had all his storied life, cutting logs for his family just before dinner and was tragically killed by error.
The tree he was cutting jammed his chiainsaw, he then used his tractor to put pressure on the very large tree to free the saw and kickback occurred at lightning speed, it’s suspected he never saw it coming.

He leaves behind two younger kids and a wife. Marc was a diesel mechanic in the army, refuse business owner that drove roll off trucks and rubbish trucks (for our father too), drove cross country tractor trailer, did scrap metal, farming, worked as a carnival tractor trailer driver and ride mechanic, (there wasn’t much he couldn’t fix) was an excellent welder, delivered newspapers even, the guy never stopped working and rarely took time off. (He had also been logging ever since he was very young)

Thank you, and god bless.

Oh man, there's just no words other than tragic and senseless. His family will look to you for help in whatever that may look like. Grieve together and heal together. My condolences.

I am always leery of cutting some trees as it is so dangerous. . . we burn a lot of wood in the winter.

I can’t thank this community enough for your warm thoughts and donations.

I play league and pick up basketball and going tonight was very hard, but I needed to try and heal my mind a little bit.
I got emotional after I finished and came back to read the level of support from all of you, and all I can say is bless you all from the top and bottom of my heart, it means so much to us all. ❤️
