  • To all of Mark’s loved ones he left behind:
    I was a classmate of Mark’s at Rockbridge and Logan, he was a dear friend. We had a lot of laughs and fun times together through our schooling years. I lost track of Mark after graduation but thought fondly of him from time to time. Keep him in your heart and don’t forget the good times you’ve shared. I will always remember him.

    • Thanks Debbie..I am his oldest daughter Stacy. Feel free to email me or call me if you have any stories about my Dad you would like to share. Many Blessings, Stacy

  • Dear Dad, Wish you were here so I could hug you goodbye. You left with no warning..just let out a sigh from the weight of this world…you leave me wondering why. Wish you were here so I could hug you goodbye…so I could see your smile one last time…so I could tell you I love you despite your foolishness and pride. Let the past float away like a prayer in the sky so God can heal your hurt inside. Wish you were here so I could see your smile one last time… so I could squeeze you so tigh…the kids are going to miss you and so am I. No more motorcycle rides or mountains to climb just Jesus to hold you till the end of time. Wish you were here so I could hug you goodbye…tell Grandma we love her and we’ll see you soon, when the Lord takes us home above the sun and the moon. Love you Daddy

  • Wishing the family of Mark Dennison our deepest sympathy from the Logan High School Class of 1973.

  • Sad to hear of Mark’s passing. We were very good friends through out our high school days and beyond. We kept in touch even after I joined the Air Force. Mark came to see me in VA a couple of times in the mid to late 90s when he was Truckin, then his route changed and we lost touch. Rest in peace Mark, we’ll miss you.

  • I was so sad to hear of Mark’s passing. My deepest sympathy to Mark’s family, especially his three beautiful daughters.

    I met Mark in 1984. I was a manager for USS Chemicals in Pensacola and hired him as a truck driver for the company. Mark was an excellent employee and soon became a good friend. He was considerate, funny and had his own way of thinking.

    Most important in his life were his children. He proudly introduced his daughters to me and spoke of them in a way only a father could do. I met his son when he was a small baby, but lost contact with the family when they moved.

    I will always remember Mark as a good friend and sad he couldn’t be with us longer.
