The late Joseph G. Marks Jr. of Wheatfield is being honored by Unyts as the organ donation hero of the month for October 2014.

The Buffalo-based nonprofit will also host a reception for loved ones honoring Marks. Photographs of Marks and his story are also being featured at the Donate Life Family Center, where Unyts provides workshops and support services for the families of donors.

Marks, a Niagara-Wheatfield High School graduate known to friends as "Big Joe," became an organ, eye and tissue donor upon his passing on July 1, 2012.
