Mark was one of the first people I met when I moved to Wilmington in 2002. I always enjoyed hanging out at his shop or at the Dub.He will be missed, RIP Buddy.

As a co-worker of Mark for about 14 years, I felt that he was a genuinely good guy. My condolence to the family.

Hey, Debbie; not sure you remember me. I was at Lake Forest Baptist for a few years. I remember you & Mark getting married while I was here in Wilmington. So sorry to hear about Mark; I know you loved him dearly.

Deb, we were so sorry read of Marks passing. Being friends with you and Mark back in the 80's, were some of our best and funniest memories.
Starting with the various bowling leagues, and teams we were members of were a blast!
I'll always remember the rides we took in the "Rust Bucket" to get to Carolina Beach, and Sand Dollar Island !
Who could forget the fishing trip we all took on the Winter Queen that hot summer day, when Mark, being an ex-Marine, was the one & only person to get sea sick !! lol
Rest in Peace our friend. Thanks for the memories.
With deepest Sympathy,
Gale & Dawn
