Mark will indeed be missed by those of us in the ski lift industry and those of us in the amusement ride industry. I Too enjoyed the telling of stories (the one we could both share) weather it be of a ski lift or an amusement ride. I first met Mark at one of the Utah Tramway board meetings, we both found out that each of us had an amusement ride background and were working in the ski lift business. We would get together at the shows, the ASTM F-24 meetings, or the ANSI B77 meetings to reminisce about something or another. A good engineer, Mark was always willing to answer a question or offer an opinion if asked. Mark will be missed by all of us. A is said on the railroad, Green Signals on your next journey my friend.

Mark was such a great guy! We worked together at ARROW. And though the environment was often stressful, Mark always had a calm approach to every situation. He was the ultimate team player and always had a desire to help. I continued to hear from Mark from time to time, even after he left Utah. He will be missed! Blessings and peace to his family!

Working with Mark so many years ago on some difficult projects (Mark also has some monorails in his resume) Mark taught me a lot about grace under pressure. Mark was always a calming influence, and a great engineer.

We also enjoyed swapping car stories. Mark, the third generation Ford engineer, who had to park his little European car at the back of the lot. Mark always took on interesting projects and so had great stories.

We were both part of the mini Arrow baby boom. Over the years, we stayed in touch over various industry projects, and would catch up on what the kids were up to. I will miss those calls.

Hello Jane
Just read Wally’s news of Marks passing and remember our last RR together. I remember you left early and I was surprised he had health problems and yet seemed so cheerful and healthy.
I was always so surprised he remember my kids worked for Conan. I loved talking to him especially about roller coasters and the idea you were living in his childhood house. He stands out in my mind as the very nicest person I met in doing Round Robins. I had no idea he was not I good health until I learned of his machine.
I have been on my own now for 5 years since Ralph died and it is quite a journey you will be embarking on Jane. But what a caring wonderful man you spent so many years with . Mary Bleyaert

I am so saddened to hear of Mark’s passing. I stumbled upon his name in a Cornell University alumni book and through him, I found my way to a new life in Utah. Mark instantly became a great friend and he and Jane made me feel welcome in a new place. We worked together designing amusement rides, we skied, rode bikes, shared meals, and even commuted to work together.
Mark always treated others with kindness and gave people the benefit of a doubt. He loved exploring engineering challenges.
We reunited years later when I was in Detroit for a project where he was the inspector and again a few years ago when my son auditioned at U of Michigan. After years apart, Mark was as warm and welcoming as ever. He left a big impression on my son during our brief visit.
Mark was a special friend who I will miss a great deal.

Jane, Christine, Jenny

The world seems a little duller now without the spark Mark's intellectual curiosity, passion and sense of joy, but I know your memories will continue to be full of his love.

I share the loss that the entire ski industry feels in Mark's passing. He was always quick to share his knowledge in a friendly and unassuming manner. I will always cherish Mark's friendship. Blessings on your next journey.

I can't believe Mark will not be there when I call to tap his immense knowledge. I worked with him in his capacity with the State of Michigan (at which he created a professional and organized tramway department) as well as on other projects. He was always the voice of reason and reality with a sense of humor added in for good measure. We will all miss him both personally and professionally My condolences to his family and closest friends of which there are many - of that I am sure. Bon voyage Mark and may you sail away with great pleasure on whatever seas you find!

'Sad to hear of Mark's passing! We were good friends and engineer colleagues in the ski industry and members of the ANSI B77 Committee on tramway safety for a very long time. I always valued Mark's easy-going nature and friendliness. Thank you for being here Mark!

I will so miss Mark Doman.
As others have noted, Mark was a real friend to the ski industry and to the people in it. When Mark worked with ski areas he helped people learn good ways to manage, maintain, and operate their lifts.
His friendly ways went a long way to create trust and good will with those he encountered.
A loss to us all.
