Legacy leader, Marc Bobonic doesn’t want to say goodbye…
Marc Bobonic was introduced to Livingston when his mother Wini Maye Bobonic came under the care of Livingston Hospice in 1999, diagnosed with terminal breast cancer. After his mom passed, Marc said he felt “like a babe in the woods” and began attending Livingston’s grief classes. From there he made the step into our hospice volunteer program. Marc feels that the classes and volunteer program were supportive, useful and “kept me sane.”
Volunteering, although rewarding, was not easy for him. He recalls gathering courage standing outside of a dying patient’s home and says that “My brain didn’t want to go in, but my heart and feet led the way.”
One year Marc attended Livingston Hospice’s annual Light Up A Life celebration that remembers loved ones who have passed. As a musician himself with a strong technical background, Marc thought the sound system and music could be improved and offered to help. For the past fourteen years, Marc has been working with musicians and the Light Up team of volunteers to assist in delivering heartfelt and memorable evenings.
When asked about the inspiration for his joining the Livingston Legacy Society and including Livingston in his estate plans, Marc says, “My experience with Livingston Hospice makes me never want to say goodbye and lose ties.”
It is forward thinking, kind and compassionate people like Marc who are putting into place a sustainable foundation for Livingston’s mission.
