He was born on September 27, 1966 in Mobile, Alabama to Monroe, Jr. and Judy Gildersleeve. As an army brat, throughout his youth and teenage years, he traveled the world with his family, living in Darmstadt, Germany; Kaiserslautern, Germany; Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany; Fort Hood, Texas; Fort Knox and Fort Campbell, Kentucky. He attended college at the University of Maryland at Munich, and the University of Alabama on a tennis scholarship. He later graduated with his Bachelor’s degree from Austin Peay State University. He lived in Clarksville, Tennessee for most of his adult life and served with the United States Postal Service located in Nashville, Tennessee for over 27 years.
Marchese was probably one of the most kind and loving people you could ever meet. He will be deeply missed. He loved spending time with his family, taking pictures, and going to concerts with his friends. Marchese enjoyed cooking new recipes, playing video games, and trying out new electronics with his nieces and nephews.
He is survived by his parents Monroe, Jr. and Judy Gildersleeve; sister Monrita Tate (Ralph) and brother Marcus Gildersleeve, Sr.; nieces and nephews: Mariah Hughes, Tyler Hughes, Jaylin Gildersleeve, Myla Gildersleeve, Marcus Gildersleeve, Jr., and Jalea Gildersleeve; and devoted companion, Cassandra Nelson. He also leaves behind friends and coworkers who cared about him dearly.
