  • To friends and family I’ll say what you know, Mark was true, great and wonderful. Really don’t remember what part of grade school we became friends, but I know we spent lots of time together and then from age 16 up we would work together bagging groceries. Whenever we’ve met over the years it was always a great conversation, life’s changes, our kids, our work, our moms, Mark had the greatest respect and love for his mom and it always came thru even back as twelve year olds we might stretch a boundary but never one set by his mom, those you respected. Mark took that respect with him to his work everything somehow the caring and kindness for others was forever there. We send mark to gods hand a loyal servant.

    Seek peace in knowing he has graduated again to a place of joy no sickness and no sorrow. Childhood memories of him and his Mom. My mom wouldn’t let me go to their house. Marks mom had to promise almost swear an oath that she wouldn’t give me coffee. Lol loved them both dearly
    Prayers of peace strength and encouragement to all family and friends. One day he came up behind us girls jr high we were setting in a circle on the ground watching guys practice
    Mark cane up behind me and put his hands on my shoulders scared me to death I grabbed and slung him over and thru the air. Coach came running over asking what was going on. We were laughing hysterically and Mark was so polite and said something to the effect it was his fault he snuck up on me Great memories which I am sure u have loads of
