Madison singer, songwriter, friend to many and devoted family man Marques Bovre passed away Monday morning. His two-year journey with a cancerous brain tumor was handled with courage, intelligence, wonder, humor, respect and irreverence; the same kinds of things his songs explored and revealed in life.

His wife, Tracy, asks for some time -- an undefined amount of time -- to process the current and the next series of moments for herself and her family.

"Marques passed away early this morning (around 1:15)," she writes. "I don't know anything yet about details of what the next steps will be, and will try to keep you posted. Right now, I am trying to keep things quiet and family oriented in regards to visitors. Thank you to everyone for the support and kindness that have been shown to us."
