Vernon Marks (Lee), 73, of Bealeton, VA, passed from this life on Saturday, July 16, 2022, at Frederick Health Hospital in Frederick, MD.
Born on November 4, 1948, in Timberland, NC, he was the son of the late James Marks and Betty (Riggsbee) Marks.
Lee proudly served in the U.S. Navy from 1967 to 1973 out of Norfolk, VA, with two tours on the USS Columbus.
After his service in the Navy, he and his brothers established M&M Floors, Inc in Falls Church, VA as a premiere flooring contractor specializing in hardwood. He was the President and Owner until retirement and was very proud to see his son acquire the business and move it into the modern era.
When he wasn't spending time at his company or with his family, you could find Lee out on the Potomac River or Chesapeake Bay, where he felt most at home. He was an avid boater and fisherman, retiring to the Northern Neck of Virginia.
He is survived by loving wife, Pamela Marks; children Amy Connolly, Chris Marks and Lindsay Meadows; grandchildren McKenna Connolly, Brenden Connolly, Brittany Marks, Sydney Marks, Thomas Marks, Daren Meadows, Preston Meadows and Abigayle Meadows; siblings Judy Lucas and Gary Marks; son-in-law Michael Connolly, daughter-in-law Francie Marks, and son-in-law William “Hank” Meadows; sisters-in-law Patricia Moodie, Brenda Marks, and Margaret Marks; and brother-in-law Nelson Moodie Jr. He is also remembered fondly by numerous nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister Sarah Gilchrist, and brothers Tom, Chip, Frank, and Bob Marks.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in his name to Frederick Health Hospice 1 Frederick Health Way, Frederick, MD 21701, or the Alzheimer's Association.
A Celebration of Life will be planned for the near future and notification will be forthcoming.
