Mark D. Havranek
July 15, 1962 ‒ August 20, 2016
Mark D. Havranek, age 54, of Marengo passed away Saturday morning August 20, 2016 at his home surrounded by his loving family.
Mark was born on Sunday July 15, 1962 to the late Joseph C. and Marian I Havranek in Columbus, Ohio. He was one of three children.
Mark was skilled in the carpentry field where he became self-employed as an Interior Finishing Carpenter. The center of Mark’s world was his son Cameron. Being self-employed allowed him to spend a lot of quality time with him. Mark did not miss any sporting event that Cameron was playing in. He would be in the stands cheering on his team. It didn’t matter if they won or loss, the important thing to him was that he was able to be there and support his son. Mark would look forward to coming home from work and practicing with Cameron, usually baseball. Most evenings you could find the two of them playing catch in the yard.
He had a love for music. Being a talented guitarist many memories were made by listening to Mark play his guitar. He furthered his musical talent by becoming a song writer and writing many of his own music.
In his spare time Mark enjoyed boating and golfing. Most of the time he just enjoyed relaxing with family and friends drinking a cold Budweiser in the evening or watching his beloved Cleveland Browns play. Most of all Mark enjoyed life and believed to live your life to the fullest.
Mark will be dearly missed by the love of his life Daphne Harris, son Cameron Havranek, sister Christy (Bruce) Madden, sister-in-law Linda Harris-Havranek, and nephews Matthew Havranek and Aaron Madden.
He was met at heaven’s gates by his parents and brother Joseph Havranek.
Family will greet friends at Dorothy’s Bar, 9 South Main Street, Marengo on Sunday August 28, 2016 beginning at 1:00pm
