Mark was one of my dearest friends. He, Edd and I all became fast friends about 15 years ago at a Crossings Singles event. He always had the biggest and brightest smile on his face and arms open for a big hug when I saw him. He was one of a kind for sure! Conversations with Mark often left one inspired or aggravated but always wanting more. He was always looking to spice things up at gatherings with his ornery behavior and loved juicy gossip. Mark challenged all of us to think a little deeper with probing questions and an eager listening ear. He had a big heart full of love for others, and an infectious laugh. He was sort of like our very own larger version of Yoda..."The Grand Master of the Jedi Council, Yoda has trained Jedi for over 800 years. He is wise and powerful in the ways of the Force, though his small size causes many to underestimate him. Yoda prefers meditation and reflection, spending much time pondering the mysteries of the Force." I'm going to miss Mark more than words can express but I know he's waiting in heaven for us and bragging about how he got to go there first! ❤ Love you dear friend! G

I knew Mark for a short time when we both worked together at Valtech. He was wicked smart, funny, and a good friend. He will be missed. He has a good soul.

OH Dear Mark! You were such a fun friend in Focus 20 at Southcoast Community Church back in '89 while you were living in So CA! We shared so many, many laughs. You left your friends and family much too early. It was a priviledge to call you friend. I know you and the angels will have many laughs. Their gain, our loss. Til heaven my friend!!!
