Mardell, better known as “Stale Bread” attended school in Queen Annes County. He worked various jobs as a handyman. Mardell was loved by many developed a bond with almost everyone he came in contact with. He always kept a smile on his face. He enjoyed laughing, backflips and dancing. You would often catch him watching his favorite football team, “The Dallas Cowboys.” Mardell was an enjoyable person to be around. His children held a special place in his heart. Mardell loved his father and would do anything to lend his father a helping hand. He also loved hanging with his brother, Martaevous, and his one special cousin, Artez, who was always a comfort to Mardell. These two had a bond that some may not understand. When you saw one, you would see the other. Mardell always had the biggest smile. He loved eating and wouldn’t turn away any food. He ate his plate and anybody else’s plate.
