Marcus Simmons Day

On January 21, 2023, Smile Like Marcus hosted a festival named Marcus Simmons Day at the Killeen Special Events Center. Marcus Simmons Day was an incredible event that inspired hundreds of community members.

Marcus Simmons was an extraordinary man who passed away in May 2009 from Sickle Cell complications. Marcus served in the Air Force, was a bus driver for Copperas Cove ISD, and was a family man who loved the community. Marcus was born on January 20th; therefore, the day after his birthday, we decided to host Marcus Simmons Day on January 21, 2023.
