In Rememberance, Marc Kaplan
It is with sadness that we share the news of the passing of Marc Kaplan. For many, Marc was “the voice” of our Holiday Happiness and Tree Lighting shows of the past several years. His enthusiasm and love of performance meant that each skater and group would be cheered, and he could always make a crowd smile.
Our older skaters may know him best as “Elena’s dad” – ready with a joke, a pun, or a supportive word for a job well done. It made early mornings, late evenings and hard practices a little bit easier.
Marc was also a member of our Board, sharing his time and talent behind the scenes. We are so lucky to have had his thoughtfulness, his creativity and his unending positivity. He could always be counted upon to find the good in every skater’s performance and in every tough decision we had to make.
Our hearts are with his wife Susan, his daughter Elena, and all of his family and friends.
Rest easily, Marc, and thank you!
