It is with much sadness that I read of Mark’s death. He was a high school and college friend of my son in Tuscaloosa. I’ll remember him fondly as I do the other two classmates of theirs who died much too young. My condolences to his family. God’s Peace, Carol Gatewood

Mark was an excellent advocate for his clients and he was fearless in court. I remember arguing opposite Mark up in Tacoma at the Washington Court of Appeals and Mark’s presentation was persuasive and passionate. He just loved to argue and he was very good at it! I remember it well because afterwards, we shared a meal and drink and quite a few laughs. I really appreciated Mark’s intellect and his fierce competitive nature. I’m really going to miss him.

I'd barely gotten a chance to know Mark, but I'll remember him for being incredibly friendly and helpful in the brief span we worked together; when I needed help with advice or legal research in trial, he'd jump in right away, thoughtfully, with what I needed. Even in a short amount of time, I can tell I missed out in not getting to know him more as a colleague and as a person. His energy and his laughter will be missed.

I never knew Mark as well as some others, but from the time I did know him he was one of the most genuinely friendliest guys I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Whether it was us rooting for opposite teams in the College Football Championship games, or our love for our respective football teams. It was always a pleasure to see his smiling face, and genuine personality. The world has lost a good man, may he never be forgotten. Godspeed brother. I will see you again.

This guy was one of a kind... Smart, funny, and genuine. So many memories swirl around my head and they all end in a smile. I'm so sad he won't be here with us to watch his beautiful daughter grow, but I do know that he will always watch over her with that same beautifully crooked smile. I love this guy. I'm so sad he's gone. My love and prayers are with his parents, his loved ones, and especially with precious Madi.... ❤️
