Marcus Anthony Comeaux
Marcus Anthony Comeaux, 63 of Port Bolivar, Texas, went to be with his heavenly father on March 30, 2020. He was sent to this earth on November 25, 1956, at Saint Mary’s Hospital in Galveston, Texas to proud parents Leroy Anthony Comeaux and Beverly Bonita Blume Comeaux.
He is survived by his loving wife of forty-one years, Talisa Adam Comeaux; sons, William Comeaux and his wife, Haley; and Blake Comeaux; grandchildren, Evan and Lennon Comeaux and Ethan and Emma Smith; siblings, Joe, Nancy, Curtis, Malcolm, Gregory, Tommy and Charlotte; father-in-law, Rudy Adam Sr.; and numerous in-laws, nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Leroy and Beverly; grandparents, George “Bill” and Esther Blume, Delino and Celeste Comeaux; and nephew, Timmy Macon.
Marcus fell in love with Talisa when they were both young and she was always the love of his life. There was no one else for him. They were married in 1978 and he was blessed with fatherhood in 1979 and then again in 1982. After a long wait, he first became a grandfather in 2011. He was THE most loving husband, father, and grandfather. There is no other like him. His pride and joy were his grandkids, they are his legacy. He was involved in everything his kids and grandkids did.
He was a lifelong resident of Port Bolivar and didn’t want to be anywhere else. He was a simple person that was happy with the simple things. He loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, shrimping, and gardening. Marcus had time for everyone. He would drop everything he was doing to help anyone that asked. He was a second dad to some, a second brother and uncle to many, and a second grandfather to others. He was a faithful and dedicated man of God. He had no doubts about his savior Jesus Christ and was not scared of leaving this earthly place. His fear was leaving his family behind. Marcus was a Deacon at the Church of Christ of the Bolivar Peninsula. He was a commercial fisherman for many years and a mechanic for Galveston County Road & Bridge. He was a man of many talents. Many relied on him for his kind heart and knowledge. He loved all his family and friends and was loved by all. He would do anything for them and his community. Marcus was a hero to all.
A family graveside service will be held at the Port Bolivar Community Cemetery, with Jerry Nelson Jr. officiating. Pallbearers will be, Evan Comeaux, Ethan Smith, Joe Comeaux, Curtis Comeaux, Malcolm Comeaux, Gregory Comeaux, Tommy Comeaux, Delino Comeaux, Rickey Adam, Ryne Adam, Bobby Bouse and Billy Petree.

Our thoughts and prayers for the Comeaux family. We know Marcus was a good man and will always be watching down to protect you.
It is true, there was no one like Marcus. It didn't matter who you were, he was always interested in you and made you feel welcome. Even though I live about 300 miles away, my family would come down almost every summer in the 60's and 70's and spend a couple of weeks with our family the Comeauxs, and Marcus was always there to welcome us. He made me feel like a best friend instead of just a cousin and I know he made just about everybody feel that way. I remember in the 70's when before he and Talisa were married, they were always with each other and seemed so perfect together. And it turns out they were. In the late 80's, when I brought my new wife Sherry down to Bolivar, we went to Aunt Beverly and Uncle Leroy's house. We sat down at the kitchen table and he was the first to sit down with us and wanted to know all about Sherry, He made her feel very welcomed into the family and was truly interested in her as a person, not just my wife. You hear about people being "larger than life"---Marcus filled that bill perfectly. Once you met him you never forgot him. Even though I hadn't seen him in a couple of decades, I feel like I'd just seen him. I know he's with Jesus now, and with his family who are in Heaven. We are the poorer for his absence but he will always be with us in our hearts. Love you, Marcus.

I remember he was never a bully. Marcus took up for the picked on he made you laugh and feel important. From the comments on here seemed he live his life. Unchanged he was beloved by many.
I have been good friends with Nancy for years, we worked together for 25. Through the years I have heard and seen the closeness of your family. Together you will make it through, know that you have so many people praying for you right now including my husband Paul and I.
