Mark Allan Daigle, Sr. joined his Lord on June 4th, 2021 while at home in Willis, Texas. Mark was born on May 28, 1962, in Baytown, Texas to Charles Louis Daigle and Annette Lemmon Daigle, who preceded him in death. After the family moved to Jefferson, Texas, a teenaged Mark wore many hats in the local community, including in the grocery store, the feed store, the Excelsior House Hotel, and Daigle Construction. Mark attended the University of Texas before starting a thriving and fulfilling career in homebuilding. He spent the majority of his homebuilding career with Tilson Homes, before starting M. Daigle Custom Homes, his own custom homebuilding business. He spent his entire life maintaining a passion for building homes for the communities that he lived in; for some time, he acted as Vice President of Codes and Standards of the Greater Houston Homebuilding Association. He had a stellar reputation in the homebuilding community for “doing things right” for his clients and turning their visions into reality. He took great pride in his craftsmanship, and it meant a lot to him to help people live in their dream homes. Mark was a man of strong faith and an active member in the Catholic community by way of his church, St. Joseph’s in New Waverly, Texas.

Mark is survived by his beloved wife, Josette Daigle, whom he married on April 17th, 1993. He is also survived by son Mark Allan Daigle, Jr. and daughter-in-law Ashly Michelle Daigle and granddaughter Madilyn Grace Daigle; daughter Amy Janell Itzel, along with son-in-law Brandon Michael Itzel and granddaughters Juliet Elise Itzel and Alison Kate Itzel; son Adam Lee Daigle and daughter-in-law Nadine Ona Daigle; sister Elizabeth Anne Dickson and family; brother Charles Louis Daigle, Jr. and family; and beloved pets Purl, Bounce, and Biscuit.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, June 10, 2021 from 5 – 7 p.m. at Cashner Funeral Home in Conroe, Texas followed by a traditional Rosary Service. Funeral mass will be held on Friday, June 11, 2021 at 11 a.m. at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in New Waverly, Texas. Mark will be laid to rest at the family plot on Saturday, June 12, 2021 at 1 p.m. in Oakwood Cemetery, Jefferson, Texas.

Mark’s family extends its gratitude to all the relatives, friends, and community who have come together and wrapped Mark and his family in loving care and support. Mark was truly humbled by the outpouring of support and expressed his gratitude as well.

God blessed me the day that I met Mark Daigle. Even though he could be a little rough around the edges, Mark was always true to his word, generous to a fault and he always had a word of encouragement. I will truly miss being able to call him to "solve the problems of the world". Prayers for peace and comfort for Josette and their family.

Mark was a wonderful man. We decided to build with him because of his integrity and the quality of his work. I will remember him and the example he set.

I knew Mark from High School, he was a couple years older than me however we all hung out together. Mark was involved in the community & his family was known & admired. He always had a smile on his face, laughing & loved life. I knew he was sure to go far in life & sure enough he did. My thoughts & prayers for his families & so many friends.
Godspeed Mark !

I had the privilege of meeting Mark and Josette a couple of years ago in Jefferson, Texas. Many know Mark through his excellence and personal detail in home construction. I know Mark through his excellence in forest stewardship of God’s natural resources placed in his care. Mark was a detailed planner and implemented a forest management plan that included timber production, wildlife habitat, water quality of natural creeks and aesthetics. His legacy will continue for many years through his conservation efforts in the forest community.
I and the staff at Muslow Forestry offer our deepest sympathies. May all family and friends be consoled and may our memories of Mark continue to be a source of joy and blessings.

Mark was one of my dearest friends in high school. We spent so much time together as classmates, teammates, junior historians, and just riding the streets of Jefferson and hanging out. We will forever be known for ending up in Coach Young's yard that fateful night. I will miss you my friend. Love you, brother. Rest easy.

Regrettably, we had only known Mark less than a year, working with him on a plan for our home at Texas Grand Ranch. During that time we had the benefit of his experience and knowledge as he and his team patiently put together something for us literally from the ground up. We were excited to become part of the "family" he had created in his business.

Everyone we came across who knew him spoke of his honesty, integrity and passion for getting things right. Building a home with him was "easy", as the button on his desk attested.

It is a testament to his character that he and his talented staff have done everything possible to assist his clients in continuing with their building plans after his passing.

It was a pleasure to meet and work with him. Our thoughts are with his family. His passing leaves a void in the hearts of so many.

Our regrets,
