Mark worked the last 24 years for Answering Advantage based in Memphis, TN. He was an avid Philadelphia baseball and football fan. Go Phillies and Eagles.

We will all miss Mark. Nice, friendly, and funny are some of this attributes. After meeting his family I know where he got them. I always enjoyed the challenge of finding the perfect Christmas gift for him.
Wishing the best for his family,

Mark moved out to San Diego at 19 & lived with me. Years later he showed up in Memphis & again lived with me. Over all those years we played so many games of basketball, one-on-one, and he was a huge help in coaching my daughter's basketball and softball teams as well for many years. The most fun we had was playing wiffle ball. Each year each season culminated in our having our own World Series. We had so much fun together. What I remember, too, is that Mark never cheated or was a sore loser. He just enjoyed it all, two brothers playing.

What can a mother say regarding the loss of a son. Her baby boy. Such a delightful man. Always offering a laugh and a happy thought. Called to say I love you to Dad and I and when Dad passed he continued every day. He was a perfect mate for Sarah. He knew God had a plan and he faced that plan. Thank you Mark from the bottom of my heart. Love Mom

Dear Midge and family.

As for you and your family, I pray for comfort and courage in this difficult time.

May you keep in the deepest part of your soul the belief of all faiths that we will not be separated forever from those we love.

God bless you and Mark.

Love,

What a great big brother Mark was. Always there when I needed him. He was my partner in crime growing up. Of course as an adult he confessed to our parents everything (well almost everything) and it was a big joke when we would get together. He was such a devoted son. He was off every Thursday from work and he and then he and Sarah would come every week for lunch and a visit with Mom and Dad and then Mom and me. He would call every day to just say I love you. He lived his life his way and ended it his way, at home with those he loved. He will be missed - love you.

When my mother told me about her new boyfriend Mark I never thought a single person could make her as happy as she was. But he did. When i met him I never thought we could get along very well. But we did. And when We moved into his apartment I never thought I would get a second dad. But I did. My only regret is not being able to be there at the end.

The McNeal’s were our neighbors through most of the years my daughters were growing up. Such a lovely, happy family. Mark always had that beautiful smile on his face and could always make you laugh. Lost touch with him when my girls grew up but have thought of him many times through the years. God Bless You to the family and my condolences for the loss of such a lovely human being.
