I had the privilege of working with Mark on several United Way videos...he always knew how to capture the image we were wanting to portray. He was VERY good at what he did and you could always tell he enjoyed his work. My prayers are with his family and co-workers...your loss is heavens gain! Chris Pulsipher (Muskegon, MI)

Dear Debbie and family, I just heard about Mark's death today after mass and am so sorry for your loss. I have many fun memories of Mark from the couple of years we coached together at St. James. He always tried to get the girls to give their best with a firm tone and a smile on his face. Even when we lost time after time, he had encouragement for the girls. He had Shelby with him and I had Leanna and both those girls are nearly grown, how quickly time passes and when someone as young and full of life as Mark leaves us here on earth how precious every moment becomes.

My thought and prayers are with all of you during these days, I have many wonderful memories of your husband and father that make me smile.

Mark was the kind of guy who always had a funny story to share, he loved his family, friends, life, and his job - how rare is that? To know Mark was definitely my honor, to be able to call him my friend was one of God's blessings in my life. I will never, ever forget him, or you Debbie. My prayers are with you.

We were out of town and I just heard the schocking news about Mark. We worked together for probably 25 years at Messner and RC. He was always so great to work with and so understanding of talent. I'll always remember the time we tried to fix your porch roof and got chased off by an angry momma squirrel. Two grown men cowering behind a car afraid of a small squirrel.

Tee and I will keep you and the kids in our prayers. We pray God will give you his peace and comfort in this difficult time.

Debra and family,
Mark was a classmate of mine and I have met you at one of our reunions. I know he will be missed. It is always so hard to lose someone so young. May God get you through this time of sadness and fill your heart with the wonderful memories.

Debbie and family,
I am so sorry for your loss and my thoughts, love and prayers go out to you and your family. I had the privilege of working with Mark for nearly 10 years at RC Productions. Mark was funny, kind, talented and always smiling. I remember shooting the "Icee... It's Cool!" campaign with Mark and we shared so many laughs. He was an amazing man and his kindness touched many and I know he will be greatly missed!
