Mark and I worked together for many years and I have only fond memories. Although, we had lost contact over the past few years, I would think of him often and I repeated his stories to many of my friends. Mark was a good man and I know that I and many others will miss him. The world is an emptier place without Mark. My sincerest condolences to the family , especially Louise

Mark my friend my boss You were a unique individual that has touched my life, I appreciate the friendship .patience and guidance that helped me become a better technician. Your ringtone on my phone for you was a dog barking which you thought was funny, the reason I picked that ringtone was because a dog is always happy to see and doesn't judge you. I was fortunate enough to have you as my boss at Spectrum and at STS nearly 25 years. I was glad years ago when I was able to help make arrangements for the Conway Family reunion in Summerville S.C and got to meet your wonderful family, play golf and eat. My friend the world is a less brighter place without you You will be missed but never forgotten. Rest in Peace

Aunt Louise,

Uncle Mark was an amazing uncle who I am lucky to have many memories of to cherish. I always knew I could count on him to provide us with a good joke or a story to lighten up the mood any room. He was nothing short of a perfect fit to the craziness we call the Rathsack family. I am so saddened and my heart hurts hearing this news. I love you always and hope you know your niece is only a text or phone call away. Thinking of you durinf this time. ❤️

Love your niece Jenni ❤️

I am sorry to hear that Mark passed away. I didn't know him well but had worked with him on numerous occasions over the years. If you were in a bad mood at the start of a conversation with Mark, you NEVER finished it that way. He was a hoot to talk to and could always make you smile. He was a great service manager and always made sure his customers were taken care of. He will be missed.

Louise, I am so very sorry for your loss. Mark was very dear to so many of us, especially those of us that had the pleasure of working along side him. He was very kind and understanding. He had an amazing sense of humor and so very funny. I can't believe he is gone. My heart is broken. There are few words that can ease the pain you and your family are feeling right now, but please know we are all praying for you. I know how very much he loved and adored you. I am so very sorry that he is gone.

Peace and love, your friend,

Hi Louise.

So sorry about your loss. Mark was a good man and I wish we could have caught that big Muskie that he wanted to cross off his bucket list. He sense of humor is what I will miss the most. Mark loved a good joke and he had many.

We had many good times that will always be with me. It’s so true that the good die young.
