Mark was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He had numerous callings and served as a Bishop for several years in Evans.. He grew up in Winston-Salem and earned the rank of Eagle Scout. At the age of 19 he went on a church mission to Chile SA for 2 years and later graduated from Brigham Young University with a BS in marketing and finance. Mark and Mary met while attending BYU and were married in the Washington, D.C. Temple, Kensington, MD, on June 7, 1984. They had 5 wonderful sons, 2 North Carolinians and 3 New Yorkers. He was very proud of his boys. He worked for Hallmark Cards then Johnson and Johnson as a salesman before going into business for himself while living in the Rochester NY area. He then bought and managed several multi-family properties in the Augusta, GA area. When the boys started leaving home, Mark caught a travel bug. It began with a cruise with Mary, Rob and Andrew then he and Mary were cruising whenever he wanted to get away. He loved both the Caribbean and Bahamas but he especially loved going to Cozumel. He would drive a rental jeep around the Island— always stopping at a little friendly family run lunch place (with no electricity). It was his favorite quick trip so he loved it when he took Rob / Staci and David / Eleana there. He later went onto more exciting adventures traveling with his best friend Chuck Borup to China, Israel, Jordan, Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, Switzerland, Portugal, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and Peru sleeping in hostels, a tent in the desert, or small hotels. He had such a love for South America, that, after he and Chuck went, he made several trips with Mary and other family members. Highlights were visiting Machu Picchu in Peru, SA with David and Eleana and taking Andrew to Argentina on a father son trip. Mark had an adventurous spirit, was generous to his family, loved to cook, worked hard, and had a knack for picking funny, quirky gifts which would make us laugh. The family will greet friends at a memorial service on Tuesday evening March 14th from 5:15-5:45 pm followed by a "Celebration of Life" service at 6pm at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at 835 North Belair Road, Evans, Ga 30809.
