Marcus Scott Badgett

February 9, 1970 — August 31, 2022

Marcus Scott Badgett peacefully returned to his heavenly home on August 31,
2022. His love for his family and his belief in God provided comfort as he
transitioned from this world.
Marcus was born on February 9, 1970, to Lendsey Badgett (Sandra) and
Maylene Badgett.
Marcus graduated in 1988 from Elizabeth High School in Elizabeth, New
Jersey. After graduation, he attended the University of Maryland, College
Park where he was a stellar student-athlete. He proudly wore the number 88
as he stormed the field as a fierce and strategic wide receiver. During that
time, Marcus was awarded the distinguished title of the Most Valuable Player
as a Maryland Terrapin.
For many years, Marcus was the supervisor at a housing development in Las
Vegas where he secured safe housing for many in the community.
Marcus loved his family, and he never met a stranger. His heart was genuine,
and he would seek to speak life into everyone he met. Marcus would
give someone the "shirt from his back." We know that he touched
everyone that he met.
Marcus dedicated his life to his family and church in Las Vegas, Nevada. He
was preceded in death by his beloved wife Elissa Cheng-Badgett. Marcus and
Elissa shares three beautiful children Victoria, Brittany, and Quincy. Marcus
dedicated his life to providing for his children. He loved them with all that was
within him. He was proud of the amazing people they are growing up to be.
Marcus encouraged his children to strive to reach their goals and to be
grateful for each day.
Marcus leaves to cherish his memory three brothers, Rickey Badgett (Marva),
Timothy Badgett (Asia) and Ronald Dove (Aliya). He also leaves two Uncles,
five aunts, several beloved cousins, and other cherished family members
and friends. Marcus also shared his life with a special friend, Darla.
