The Marina Chamber of Commerce Mourns The Loss Of An Esteemed Community Member.
Marcel Antoine Nader, 36, of Junction City, KS, formerly of Marina, California, left his earthly vessel March 25, 2020. A private burial at Highland Cemetery of Junction City is to take place on April 6th 2020.
He was born on April 4, 1983, in Beirut, Lebanon to Antoine and Nada (Chouairy) Nader. Marcel, who grew up in Bourj Hamoud, Beirut, Lebanon, married Angie on October 12, 2005 in Nicosia, Cyprus.
Marcel was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2006 on his 23rd birthday and began treatment. His family left Lebanon July 22 2006 during the war in Lebanon and immigrated as a refugee to San Jose, California.
Marcel worked in the locksmithing industry throughout his health issues. He moved his family to Marina, California and purchased the local locksmith shop, renaming it Techno Lock Marina. His local small business supported its community by providing 10 volunteer hours a week to local nonprofits. The volunteer work included a seat on the board of the Marina Chamber of Commerce as well as assisting local youth through the Restorative Justice Partners, Inc.
He proudly became a citizen of the United States of America on November 15th 2018.
Marcel was a family man who always put his family’s needs ahead of his own. When his family had a desire, he worked miracles for them. He will be dearly missed.
