I have enjoyed working with Mark during his years at the OFCC.
He was always professional and cheerful when he answered the phone or welcomed staff and clients into the office. I always looked forward to the holiday potlucks when Mark would break out his tuxedo! My condolences to the family on your loss. May memories of Mark and the love of family surround you and give you strength in the days ahead.

I am yet another colleague from OFCC whose life was touched by Mark. We had lively and engaging discussions about the troubles of the world and how we were going to solve them. It was a joy and a pleasure for me to visit with him, even though I was typically only at the office one day a week. Mark reminded me that our lives touch others and we bear a responsibility to make those touches count for more than just our time on this earth. The memories collected here signify that Mark did just that, and did so in excellent fashion. He will be missed by all whose life he touched!

I enjoyed working with Mark, he was so professional. He was always so helpful and kind. When the sun was shining, Mark and I would sing “Sunshine on my shoulder makes me happy”. It always brightened my day. Rest In Peace. My thoughts and prayers are with Mary and family. I hope you know he had a big impact to all who called OFCC or entered our doors. He will be missed by so many!

I was blessed to be able to work with Mark before leaving OFCC in 2015. Mark was the first person seen when arriving at the office. I can remember having some light conversations with him anytime I walked past his desk. He will be missed by all. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I worked with Mark at OFCC before my retirement. We shared many stories and had great conversations. Especially on Tuesdays when we would discuss the Antique Roadshow from the night before.

My heart truly goes out to you in this time of sorrow. Someone so uniquely special and dear to you will never be forgotten.

My memories will always be of seeing a warm smile, kind words and welcoming manner. He will be missed but will live on in all the minds, memories, and stories of those who had the pleasure of knowing him.

I'm saddened to hear of Mark's passing. Mark and I worked together several years ago as he was one of the first people I got to know after gaining employment with the State of Ohio. Mark was a kind and caring person and always displayed professionalism. I enjoyed talking with him about his family and interests and was always impressed with his genuineness and enthusiasm. He will certainly be missed and I am thankful I had the pleasure to work with him and get to know him as a person even if for a short period of time.

My sincere condolences to Mark's family and loved ones.
