I will always remember our times together fishing and golfing. Mark loved being outdoors and on the water. My condolences to the family. My he rest in peace.
I will always remember talking and sharing stories of our cars, motorcycles, and engineering careers with “Uncle” Mark. A lot of good times on the water fishing and taking lessons on the golf course! Our hearts go out to the family.
You always treated me like your daughter. I could come and get advise from you for anything and you would never judge me. We have so many memories that we will cherish forever. You will always be in our hearts forever!
We luv you so much!
“uncle” Mark will be very much missed in my family. I will always remember his fishing stories and his laugh.
