PSA announced November 22 that Paul Marcus, founding member of PSA Security Network and considered to be one of the founding fathers in the physical security system integration industry, died at 103 years old.
In a written statement, PSA President and CEO Bill Bozeman said, “[Marcus] served as a powerful guiding light to PSA Security Network during the beginning years of the company. His dedication to PSA and the security industry was exemplified by his service as the Chairman of the Board for PSA Security Network for many years and his ongoing commitment to moving the industry forward. His legacy has been carried forth by his children, Jeff Marcus and Neal Marcus, who have served on many security industry committees, including Jeff following his father’s path as chairman of the board for PSA.”
Bozeman called Marcus “hands-down one of the most respected gentleman in the history of our industry.” He continued, “Everyone remembered him for his kindness. His work paved a path forward for many people in our industry and PSA Security Network certainly would not be where we are today without his influence, intellect, and passion over the years.”
Outside of his work in the security industry, Marcus’ first love was the Jewish Community Center Ranch Camp of Denver. Donations may be made in his name by visiting www.jccdenver.org and clicking the donate link at the top of the page. The family requests that all donations be designated for the Ranch Camp when making a donation.
“Mr. Marcus was also known for his great sense of humor,” said Bozeman, “and would be pleased for the world to know that, even at 103 years old, he still had hair. I am fortunate enough to have enjoyed his humor and his friendship for many years and I know many of you did as well. He will be missed by many but his legacy no doubt lives on in the work we all do every day.”
