Mark was such a good guy always helping someone and smiling. I am proud he was my "cuz" cousin. The world is little less brighter without him. We will cherish all the memories. I know he is catching big salmon with Uncle Bob in heaven. We were all blessed to have him. We love you Mark.

Mark was a fun loving guy to hang out with. He was always laughing and being funny. I always enjoyed going to Mark’s house and watching NFL games on Sundays with all the gang.
R.I.P. Mark. You’ll never be forgotten.
