I worked with Mark at Lutheran Hospital from 1979 until he retired. I always looked forward to talking with Mark and admired his work ethic. When he fell off the ladder while on vacation, the coworkers sent me up to check on him because we seemed to get along so well. He will be missed by many and I know that he loved his family with all his heart.
