Rest in peace Mark...a true gentleman, a great father, a hard worker, a comedian with an endless stash of corny were so many things but to us, you were Mark, Dawn's dad. I have had the pleasure of being in your circle since 1984. U loved my mom, loved Dawn, and treated me and Greg as if we were your own...selling your comic book collection so that we can go to Disney World two years in a row. Just an example of your generous nature. I didn't like you at first cause I thought you were trying to take over my father's spot but in hindsight, you were a better father to me and Greg than our own dad was/is and could ever be. I am so appreciative of everything you did for us, the love you always showed, whether we were deserving of it or not...the list is endless, as are the memories. May you rest in peace, now that you are no longer in pain. May you be surrounded by the love of God and the jokes of all the comedians. Til we see each other again. ❤️🙏😥

Truly sorry you guys going through this and since I didn’t get a chance to see Mark on this side I look forward to seeing him in the new world where he will enjoy good health! May Jehovah sustain you guys!

Dear Mark, I want to take this time to thank you for being a part of my life. You have helped me in more ways than you’ll ever know for the past 38 years. I cherish the happy moments we shared and thank you for being there for me in good times and bad.
We have a bright future to look forward to from God’s promise in isaiah 25:8 where “he will swallow up death forever.” That will be a blessed time to live. Thank you for your advice over the years.
See you in paradise. Greg

You will always be loved, and close to my heart always and forever. May you rest in peace dearest dad, and see you in paradise.

Love Your Daughter,
