AZ star athlete who committed suicide planned to reunite with Filipino mom

TEMPE, Ariz. – Loved ones gathered Sunday to remember Marcus Wheeler Jr., the Fil-Am star athlete who committed suicide by shooting himself on his high school campus last week. His father reveals that his son was supposed to see his mother in the Philippines for the first time since he was a baby. But that big reunion this summer will never take place.

    Its sad Marcus is gone he wasn’t able to meet his mom maria Clemer.the last time we chat was last april9 he said he miss and love his mom so much. I’m talking in behalf of Marcus mom I’m asking for your help to please send Marcus ashes to his mom here in the Phils. All the family of Marcus is waiting so we can give him a simple ceremony at the church as we follow Filipino culture and be buried after the ceremony..

    We do appreciate so much..thank you
