Mark was one of the first people I met in college. We lived across the hall from each other freshman year, and Mark was so much fun to be around. He was a great friend, and I will cherish all those good times we had.

We spent many of great times sking,camping,hiking and rock climbing in Wisconsin. I moved to Colorado and Mark did also. We stayed in contact and shared many good times.

Mark was a wonderful friend to all who knew him. He fought hard but God had other plans as he must have needed a very special angel in heaven. God bless the Dore family and may you rest in peace sweet Mark.

Goodbye my dear friend
We’ve been friends since we were four
I’ll miss you so much
Here’s to you, Mark Dore

You were funny and kind and very brave
But the moments of laughter are the ones to be saved

I know I am with thousands whose lives you have touched
We will mourn and then smile when we remember such

Our birthdays we shared, just one day apart
Mine won’t be the same;
missing a piece of my heart

I met Mark through all of his brothers that worked at the Chicago Board of Trade. At the time I worked for Matt, with Neil and also knew Mike. Years later I moved to Denver. I was walking through a trade show and ran into Mark. We instantly rekindled our friendship. We were both searching for opportunities in alternative energy. Mark was very generous with his time and talents, and we worked together to find education and opportunities. I will always remember his smile and laugh. I am very grateful to have been able to spend time with Mark.
