David Marcus, the Bakersfield native who fought successfully multiple times against cancer, has died.

His family posted a message on his Facebook page on Friday morning confirming that Marcus had passed away.

The post said in part, "It's with a heavy heart that we must share that Bakersfield's beloved David Marcus has peacefully gone to be with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ."

The news comes a day after a crowd sourcing campaign raised enough money to get Marcus a star outside Bakersfield's Fox Theater.

Kevin MCarthy responded to a previous message from the POTUS last week, saying how he's heartbroken behind David's passing.

David's sister tells 23ABC that the family plans to have a memorial service next Saturday July 6 at 10 a.m. at Valley Bible Fellowship.
