Mark was a great friend of mine for over 45 years. We had some great times together over those years. A lot of those great times were shared with others that will surely miss him as much as I will. Rest in peace my friend.

Mark was the best friend one could ever hope to have. Lots of great, fun memories. Mark's love of Bud Lite helped me retire early. You will be missed by all that were fortunate to have known you. Rest in peace my old friend.
