I have know and admired Mark ever since we went to Eugene Field where his dad was principle. We saw each other at FHS reunions and I'm sorry we did not stay in touch more. I wish the family all blessings during this difficult time.

Ann,
Sheri and I were saddened to our core upon hearing of Mark's passing. We are sorry for your loss and offer our thoughts and prayers to you and your family. My memories of Mark will always be positive as started in our younger landman days in Houston at Marathon. Mark was always a friend, always willing to share support. His character reflected thought tempered with heart and affection for those around him. He always reached out or picked up a phone to others in support of their needs and projects. He is missed, but my memories of Mark will always be fondly remembered.

Leslie and I are very saddened to hear about Mark's passing. He and I were close workmates with Sonat in Tyler in the early years of that office. Ann and the girls were also part of our lives in Tyler and in Sugar Land when we all moved down there. Mark was a great friend and excellent land man during our time together. We in Tyler are all saddened to hear that he has passed. We know Ann and the girls will have fond memories of Mark as a devoted husband, father and grandfather.
