I luckily was able to have met this crazy guy when my father George married his wonderful Mom RUTHIE,back in 1993. This new acquired family of Mark.Sharon.Diane,& Gary,& all the others tagged with them became a JOY to our huge family ,that I will not bore u with listing.
Big extended families are just the greatest & we were welcomed with open arms & hearts. They're were no exclusions. Mark wore his heart on his sleave,somemany precious times in my brain ,seeing his smile ,help,time craziness,are like movies running none stop.i guess the most precious were of times with his mom as she celebrated a birthday in the nursing home & he was on his knees looking in her sweet face ,embracing her with love ,hugs ,& the reality of her sadness. He was such a tender man. That's what I was so grateful for,nothing hauty about him ,just a pure,soft ,kind sprit. I am so blessed to have known him & call him family. Thanku Mark for who u were,kind,sweet,hard working,a LIL bit crazy cray,& full of LOVE,I'm glad I could call u family❤ Lynda

My memory is the projects that Mark did at our house, it wasn’t just the great job he always did, it was how he let Nate( when he was 4) to help him, he always had time for Nate on the projects and made him feel important

RIP Mark

Char, Jessi, Brandi, I a m so sorry for your loss. Mark will be missed. He was good man proven by the love of his two wonderful daughters. Always a warm smile and a strong handshake. I choose to remember him smiling and kidding around... Again, he will be missed.

I'm at a loss for words. I always had a special place in my heart for Mark. He was truly a caring, Wonderful, kind hearted friend that I was blessed to know. Some of the best times ever were spent with him. He was with me when I purchased my 1st Harley and rose by my side till I was safe on my own. I could go on and on. I'm going to miss you more then you realize. Watch over us all my friend. Until we meet again. God bless the family
