I worked with Mark at Kokomo Housing Authority, he was an employee but more importantly he was my friend! We had lots of laughs together, some tears, some long talks about anything and everything. Above all else he loved his family so very much! I will miss his quick smile and his great sense of humor! A wonderful man who will be missed! Rest In Peace Mark! Hugs and prayers to all the family

Every night when I would sleep over at Mamaw and Papaw’s house, I’d spend some time with Papaw in his room. I’d sit in his chair with him and watch whatever boxing show was on. Even though boxing made no sense to me, I’d just sit there with him and watch it because he loved it, and I loved him.
