Church member, Lipscomb grad cared for ‘poor, downtrodden’
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports:
FORT THOMAS – Kyle Vath was having lunch with Marcus Ewing in Nashville several years ago when Ewing told Vath he wanted him to meet some of his friends.
Before leaving the restaurant, Ewing bought a bunch of hamburgers to take with them.
“His friends were homeless people by the river,” said Vath, who attended Central Church of Christ in Cincinnati with Ewing since they were kids. “He knew every one of their names and stories. His selflessness was amazing.”
Ewing, an alumnus of Highlands High School and the University of Cincinnati, was killed in a traffic accident Friday in New York. He was 27.
Ewing was riding his bike Friday in Harlem when a driver opened his car door and knocked Ewing in front of a moving truck, according to a New York City police spokesman. Ewing died instantly.

FeedbackDear Mrs Ewing and all the Ewing family,
You do not know me, nor I you. But I happened to learn about Marcus being killed today. I just want you to know I care and you all are in our prayers. On Feb. 15,2007 our son-in-law, more like a son was killed by a drunk driver.The law seemed so uncaring about what happened to him. From what I read about Marcus lived what Christianity is. Not just a religion or something we preach, but something we live. Believe me as a preacher of the gospel for over 50 years, Marcus had it right. It is not what we say but what we do. I was converted from denominationalism and like Marcus, I do care. I share your sadness. Yet, you can be comforted that Marcus was the kind of person he was in life. May God bless and comfort you all as only He can. In Christian love for the Masters cause. Donald G. KlineDon KlineNovember, 6 2010
