Everyone knows that Mark loved God, his family and his community...in that order. He helped make the town of Olive Branch what it is today. I am proud to have known him and am sad to see him go. You will be missed my friend.

I'm so sorry, Aldridge family. Mr. Mark was like a second dad for many years, leading MYF with dad. I'll always cherish the memories of his big smile & big hugs. He gave us many a laugh and it was always apparent how much he loved the Lord and loved his family. You guys are near & dear to all the Russoms and I pray God gives you all the peace that only He can during this time. I pray you find rest in knowing you'll meet again someday-what a hope we have in that! Love you guys much.

I am so sorry to hear of Mark's passing. He was such a joy to see when he came to Allen Scrap Metal in Mount Pleasant, Texas. Always laughing and having a good time. He would transport armored vehicles to our yard. He came in one day and loaded up my daughters red jeep and hauled it home with him. The last time I spoke with him he was still driving it! Your family will be in my prayers, as I fully understand what you are going through. May God put his arms around you and comfort you.

To Jan & family ,
As a life long Olive Brancher , I've known Mark & his brothers my entire life .... as many of us old timers do . One night I was out riding around the Sonic , I had 10 minutes to be home & as I crossed the rr tracks , my car stopped . Mark drove by , turned around , stopped and tried to fix car , when that didn't work , he pushed car aside , drove me home , explained to Mom why I was late and wouldn't take a dime for it ... from as long as I can remember.. He was and remained a GREAT MAN. He will be REMEMBERED .. and MISSED . Prayers 🙏

Mark was a great friend to many, he was truly a Jesus first and family above all else kind of man. He will be missed! A lot has changed in Olive Branch over the past 50 some odd years, but Mark never did. He was a great person, and nothing proves this more than to look at the family he's left for just a season until they see him again. Lord, wrap your loving arms of peace and comfort around Jan and the kids.

Jan & family, my sincerest condolences and deepest sympathies go out to y'all. Mark will sure be missed. And my MSU football will never be the same, he was my main "go to" guy when I questioned something !
Rest in peace Mark ❤❤
Much love Jan and the entire Aldridge Family
