October 30, 1944 ‒ September 30, 2014

Marion, Ohio

Mark passed away on September 30th of 2014 at Riverside Hospital in Columbus,OH after  short illness.

He was born in Marion, OH on October 30, 1944. His parents Charles M. and Mary G. (Krisher) Ziegler preceded him in death. Three brothers Charles,Tim, and Evan all of California and a sister Suzanne Sornson of Las Vegas survive.

A “Friend of the Class of ‘62” He went to Washington and Baker for grades 1-9 but didn’t attend Harding. His parents moved the family to San Diego in August,1959 and he had been there most of the time. Two years of active duty with the Army and six months in L.A. were exceptions. He had finally gotten to move back to Marion where he purchased a home a few years ago.

Mark said,” A bachelor of Arts from San Diego State and a zillion years in commercial art had been most of his life since high school…..but my fondest memories are still of my close relatives, friends, and classmates of the Marion Years.”

Mark’s remains will be buried at Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery. No Service or calling hours.

  • Mark was special, he always asked about my family and was interested in whatever I was doing. We had lots of good chats which I will miss. I am happy that he returned to his “Marion”. We will miss seeing him at our class breakfast.

    • I am so sorry for your loss. Mark was a
      faithful friend to me and I am shocked to learn he is gone. His greatest desire was to be with God in heaven and always told me you can`t imagine how much God loves you. He loved Ohio and I`m so glad he got to move back there.

  • Mark was a very nice person who only wanted happiness and contentment for himself and everyone he came in contact with. I will always remember the time we spent together. I’m glad he was able to return to Ohio. He is missed by all who knew him. I know I do.

  • For over forty years mark and I kept a cross country friendship by phone and slomail. Through out our passing lives Mark was always remembering his great time in Marion and how he missed seasons, real grass and the people he grew up with. We got together spring 2013, first time since late 70s. Now I am especially glad that we were able to connect. None of us ever have enough friends. It’s hard to lose one. Mark will be missed.
