I want to leave here my condolences to all Mark's family, specially to his wife and children. This is probably the saddest news I received this year. I had the opportunity to work with Mark in one of our Timken projects last year. His calmness and tranquility to handle work tasks in such a fast pace environment was refreshing and inspiring. He had always a smile to share and he will be deeply missed by his friends. May God with His Grace bring the comfort your family will need during these difficult time.

I was very saddened to hear this news. Please know that Mark, you, and all of your family will be in my prayers. You may not remember me, but I got to know Mark well when we both worked at the Asheboro Plant (and our families relocated down there). I had a great group of friends from the plant and Mark was right there at the top. I loved running into him in the halls at Timken's world headquarters. We always shared a great laugh remembering our times down there. I will miss him dearly.

Please know that I am available if you need anything.
