Mark was a wonderful friend who I met at the gym many years ago , we had such great conversations & many laughs .
I took care of Bailey keeping her beautiful & with her passing Mark asked me to find him a puppy & then there was Kyah , another precious dog who he loved dearly.
Unfortunately I’m only finding out of his passing on 7/11 although I will visit him & bring him flowers as he rests in peace .
I will miss his smile & laugh although never forget him .

We met Mark as a younger man, in fact he worked for me. Through him we met the whole family.
So sad to hear that Mark has passed at such a young age. We just wanted to pass along that we have many fond memories of him and the family.

I knew and worked for Mark and his late wife Cindie Deane for 8 years. They were a great team and they loved each other dearly. I admired them and their partnership. I hope that they are together in the next life in pure bliss that they are reunited in spirit.
