Mark A. Nasset

June 24, 1953 ‒ March 16, 2015

Ostrander, Ohio

Mark Nasset, 61, of Ostrander, OH went home to be with the Lord following a brief battle with cancer, Monday, March 16, 2015 surrounded by his family.

He was born June 24, 1953 in Toledo, Ohio to the late Marcus and Dorothy (Carley) Nasset and graduated from Start High School in Toledo in 1971. He later married his high-school sweet-heart, Deb Schroeder, on September 15, 1973. In 1975, he graduated from Bowling Green State University with a bachelor’s degree in education.

Mark and Deb are parents of Carrie and Anna, and the proud grandparents of two boys and a girl, children of Carrie and her husband, Paul. Mark is also survived by his older brother and sister; Mike of Florida and Martha of Toledo.

Mark taught drafting in Oberlin, Ohio and later worked for SSOE which took the family to several jobs across the country including the expansion of Honda’s Marysville Auto Plant and the construction of Honda’s East Liberty Auto Plant. This led to a career at Honda of America Manufacturing where he worked as a facilities engineer from 1992 until 2014 when he retired. After retirement, Mark worked as a contract engineer finishing up his involvement in the Honda Heritage Center which has just opened.

Mark was an active member of Delaware Grace Brethren Church in Delaware and lived out his faith as a humble servant and peacemaker in whatever setting he encountered. Teaching by example of his walk in the Lord through his actions and quiet nature, he affected all those around him.

Mark enjoyed spending time with his wife, especially fishing and enjoying the outdoors through kayaking, hiking, cross-country skiing, or biking in Ohio and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

A Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 AM, Saturday March 21, 2015 at Delaware Grace Brethren Church, 375 Hills Miller Road, Delaware, OH, with a visitation preceding the service from 10:00-11:00 AM.

The Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center of Delaware is honored to serve the Nasset family.

In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to Delaware Grace Brethren Church.

  • Anna,
    I am sorry for the loss of your father.
    It sounds as though you were able to be with him and that is your blessing.
    May the comfort of memories heal your hearts in this time of your sorrow.

  • Deb and family,
    Years ago we had the opportunity to cross paths at Delaware Grace Brethren. We are so sorry for your loss and wish you peace and warm memories. Hugs.

  • E’en for the dead I will not bind my soul to grief:
    Death cannot long divide,
    For is it not as though the rose that climbed my garden wall
    Has blossomed on the other side?
    Death does hide,
    But not devide;
    You are but on Christ’s other side!
    You are with Christ, and Christ with me;
    In Christ united still are we.
    “Streams in the Desert”

    In Christ united still are we. Our prayers and hearts are with you all.
    Mike and Lauri White

  • I will miss you Mr. Nasset. I always enjoyed seeing you outside enjoying your garden and lawn when I was growing up. You were always so nice to me and said hi to me every time we crossed paths.
    Sorry for your loss Mrs. Nasset.

  • Dear Carrie and Paul, Mrs. Nasset, and Anna,
    We having been thinking about and praying for all of you a lot recently. We wish we could be there to give hugs and support, but, despite our inability, we know the Lord is taking care of you and will continue to do so.
    Ryan and Erin Stern (friends of Paul and Carrie)

  • Dear Carrie and family,
    I was saddened to learn of your father’s passing. May you find comfort in your memories and strength for the days ahead in the promise of the risen Lord. You will remain in my thoughts and prayers.
    With sympathy,
    Jeanne Wasil

  • While I did not have the pleasure of meeting Mr. Nasset, I do have the honor of counting his daughter among my friends. If Anna is one bit like her father, his zeal for life, passion and unique ability to connect with and share sacred space with all sorts of people is already more than palpable. My condolences go out to the Nasset family and the larger communities touched by his spirit.
