  • We will be having a wake in his honor at Bucks Bar and Grill Saturday June 20th 8 pm in the banquet room. Uncle Mark enjoyed going to Bucks and I know he will be happy knowing we will be celebrating his life there. I invite all family and friends to come share memories and stories. Even though I miss him so much already I feel comfort in enjoying life because I know that’s what he would want us all to do. I’m so lucky I had the best uncle ever who always made me feel special.

  • MARK WILL BE MISSED DEEPLY BY ME. NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW THE GOOD AND BAD TIMES WE BOTH HAVE SHARED TOGETHER. THE LAST TIME MARK AND I WAS TOGETHER, WE BOTH HAD A BLAST WHILE WATCHING FOREIGHNER, JOURNEY AND NIGHT RANGER IN CONCERT IN COLUMBUS, OHIO…WE ATE AT THE DUBLIN MONTGOMERY RIBS PLACE, AND THE FOOD WAS SOOOO GODD IT BASICALLY MELTED IN OUR MOUTHS. I REMEMBER REMINDING MARK ABOUT THAT ON THE PHONE A COUPLE WEEKS BEFORE HE PASSED AWAY.
