Mark and I met at Floyd Junior College in 1977 and two country boys who liked guns and hunting hit it off. His demeanor has never changed since those days.
He, Jeff Brown and I all became good friends and kept in touch over the following years. In 1988 when I started Cave Spring Bottling Company, Mark brought his engineering skills and Jeff brought his welding skills and we built a plant that gave many people the chance to drink the wonderful water from Cave Spring.
Occasional phone calls or a drive down Worthington road on the way back from Atlanta we’re how we kept up for years. So, about this time last year Jeff got us both in the phone and insisted we get together for dinner in Rome...and we did. 20 years had gone by and our evening was just like it had been back in the day. We agreed to get together again soon and did in February at our farm in Cave Spring and had a great time. We planned for more gatherings this year but life kept getting in the way.
My thoughts to all who read this is to not let life get in the way of sharing special times with the ones you love and try to make more opportunities to spend with dear friends.
I have told many people about Mark hunting deer with a long barrel 44 magnum pistol instead of a long barrel gun...because he could hit a deer at 100 yards with a pistol!
He was a man of many skills but more than that he was a true and amazing friend.

You were always like a second father figure to me growing up. Spending a majority of my early childhood years with you, Pam and Kellie. You always treated me the same as you did Kellie. You are loved and will be missed by many. Love you big, Tator!
