Mark recently started playing Frisbee golf which he loved. He got out there and played as much as he could whether it was sunny or snowing. He also loved to fish and drive his boat out on the water. Mark was that person who would do anything and everything for anyone in need. He could create, fix, or restore anything. He loved to BBQ and could make a mean pork butt out on the smoker, often drawing many neighbors by to let us know how amazing it smelled. Most of all, he loved his family and friends.

I have learned a lot from you while working together and you always looked out for me. You were like family and I've always enjoyed the brisket you cooked in the smoker.
You will be greatly missed but never forgotten
