I first met Mark and Ted in Pontiac, Illinois. a few weeks before the opening of the Pontiac Car Museum. We had all arrived to help Tim and Penny Dye get the museum ready
Mark and I hit it off right away as well as Ted. All being big Pontiac fans the 3 of us had alot to talk about and a lot of fun doing just that.
I will never forget Marks quiet demeanor and his forever grin, like the cat that just caught the canary.
Mark and Ted and I would see each other at POCI conventions and at Pontiac shows, and although it may have been months or a year since we had seen each other, we would just pick up where we left off and continue our friendship. I will miss Mark so very much.
I think about how much his family must miss him and how much Ted will miss him. It just breaks my heart.
In loving memory,
Bob Wolf

Mark has always been one of my best friends. We have so many memories playing as kids. We were always together & I loved him like a brother instead of a cousin. Thanks for all the wonderful memories! We will be together again someday and I look forward to seeing you again! You were the best friend, father, husband & son. I will always love you & miss you! RIP Cuz!

I will always cherish the day I met Mark and realized he and his family are my family. There is no way I can express my feelings that day. I laughed, cried and was thrilled. The days following were filled with meeting Stevie, Greg and their families. Sharing my family with them was wonderful and I will never forget the wonderful times we shared together. The time was entirely to short but I feel blessed to have had it.

Mark was a good father, husband, grandfather and nephew.
Mark always had a smile on his face would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.
RIP nephew until we meet again.
Love you Uncle Gary
