    He was such a proud father and truly an important staple in the recent years of my life. He and Barb raised the man that I love today, his son, Brett.. and I am forever thankful to have had the opportunity to know & love him as the doting father he was. His love & light will live through his family, as they carry on his memory in celebration of his beautiful life. We love you, Mark.

    Mark and I spent a lot of time together growing up as teens and young men when outdoor life was a big part of that. He and his family were a second home for me and his friendship hasn’t been and won’t be forgotten even through the years and miles that separated us. Life will take twists but memories remain. Those are great! Rest In Peace and thank you for being you.
