Long Time Guilford teacher and coach Lee Marks will be laid to rest on Monday. He died last weekend at the age of 72.
Marks coached football and track at Guilford for 47 years before retiring. He spent most of his childhood in Rockford graduating from West High School in 1962. Marks touched a lot of young lives, but in an interview with Eyewitness news in 2014 Marks said those student-athletes touched his life even more.
“Each one I felt were champions,” said Marks. “It was such a great relationship with the young athletes that I had. It’s quite an honor to put a finger print on somebody’s life.”
