Mr. Marcel Gerod Burns Jr.

December 17, 1994 ~ December 3, 2021 (age 26)


With many mixed emotions and understandable broken hearts, the Majestic Funeral Home Family joins with family of Mr. Marcel Gerod Burns Jr., as they prepare to say “Until We Reunite."  Mr. Burns transitioned from this life on Friday, December 3, 2021. 

Marcel’s family has reserved Saturday and Sunday as the days to celebrate his life. Commencing on Saturday, December 11, 2021 from 5pm to 7pm in the main chapel on the campus of Majestic Funeral Establishment in Riegelwood, NC. Family and friends may gather to reminisce on lasting memories while visiting with Marcel. The events will climax on Sunday, December 12, 2021 at 12noon, with a Triumphant Farewell Celebration at Emsley A. Laney High School old Gymnasium in Wilmington, NC. Following the services in the Gymnasium, the Majestic Servants of Service will escort Mr. Burns’ delicate vessel along with his adored family to Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery in Riegelwood, NC for committal rites. As difficult as it will be for his devoted family to dismiss from this earthly resting place without Marcel, all will find solace knowing his is in that land where there is a tree and its leaves are good for the healing of all infirmities. There, he will no longer wear the earthly apparel but instead, he is wearing Golden Slippers a Gold Crown and a Long White Robe.
