Marcus’s humor and dance skills are lunchtime entertainment at the Clubhouse. He remembers well a successful career as an electronics specialist in the Navy, but since a car accident in 2001 left him in a coma for more than a month, he has trouble remembering small things, like to take big steps and how to get around the Clubhouse. Marcus’s membership at Side by Side is a benefit both to his parents who get a much needed break from care giving and to members and staff whose faces break into smiles as he walks (or dances) into a room.
