Obituary of Mark A. Hoard
Mark Allen Hoard, age 59, of Harker Heights, Texas passed away on Saturday, April 30, 2022. Mark was born July 30, 1962. A Celebration of Life service for Mark will be held Wednesday, May 18, 2022 @ 6:00 PM at Crawford Bowers, Killeen, Texas. On the evening of April 30, we lost our beloved Mark Hoard at age 59. Mark was born in Heidelberg, Germany to Joyce and Lloyd Hoard. Mark lived in Central Texas for most of his life. On May 3, 1980, he married the Love of His Life Leslie. From their marriage, they had one daughter, Shannon. They also have three grandchildren. He spent his free time with his family and he adored his grandchildren. His main priorities in life were to provide for and protect his family. Mark was a homebuilder in the Killeen & Harker Heights area. When he started building homes, he was one of the youngest homebuilders in the area. He loved the work, while also taking great pride in creating new homes for many families over the last thirty-five years. He cared for his subcontractors just as much as he cared for his home buyers. He retired from homebuilding in November 2021. Over the last 40 years Mark was an avid deer hunter forming many lifelong friendships through the sport, Harold Smart and Ken Ondreako to name a few. He brought many family members to hunt on his land-lease and enjoyed sharing that time with them. He accomplished a lifelong dream when he went on an African Safari in 2006. Mark leaves to cherish his memories: Wife Leslie Hoard; Daughter Shannon Grover & Son in Law Jeremy Grover; Three grandchildren: Lauren, Hunter, and Avery Grover; Sisters: Jeanette White (Karen), Jeannine Matthews, Pam Pena (John), Jerri Hoard (Patti), JoAnn Griffin (Jack), and Constance McAndrews (Bruce) and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends. A visitation for Mark will be held Wednesday, May 18, 2022 from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM at Crawford Bowers, Killeen, Texas. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at www.crawfordbowersfuneralhome.com for the Hoard family.
