Love ya ,my friend. You’ll be sadly missed. R.I.P Mark

  • I am deeply sorry for your loss. Mark was a very good friend and co-worker whom I knew for many years. Mark always had a smile on his face and could cheer you up on your worst day (that was the one thing I remember most, his smile and making me laugh when I met him – Karen). I will always remember the fun we had; the good and the maybe sometimes not so good. He will be missed. Dan and Karen Cocherl

  • I knew Mark back in the day at JVS and for a short time after graduation. He was a great friend back then and we had a lot of fun hanging out, going to the park to play frisbee and partying. He was kind and funny then and it sounds as if he never lost those qualities as the years passed. My deepest condolences to Mark’s family. So sad that he passed so young.
