Who ever said a little work will never kill you apparently didn’t know Mark.

The rest of the family will carry on his legacy with pride and honor.

Oh my, I am without words!!! Mark and I spent so much time together as kids in private art classes along with Megan...Those are times I will keep close to my heart. You will be so missed!!! My heart and wishes go to his whole family especially his 3 kids and wife.
I am just so sad with a hole in my heart that I will now fill with fond memories of my missed buddy!

Find this so odd. Mark got me my first job when I was 16. Was close with him in high school but we grew apart. Thoughts are with his friends and family.

I met Mark through a mutual friend, Kenn Crawford. We were helping Kenn edit his works and we bonded over our similarities in our editing styles. He was a great man, easy to laugh with, and will be greatly missed. My love goes to his family and friends in this time.
