I have know Mark for over 30 years. He was the greatest guy. When my children were in grade school and had a project to do they would always call Uncle Mark. He was so talented and had so many great ideas for them. I think he liked doing it as much as they did. I always said he missed his calling in life and should havea been an art teacher. He was both great at art and love helping kids. He will be truly missed by my entire family. Kathy Stephan
I met Mark about seven years ago when I began taking care of his mother-in-law, Dot. He was one of the kindest men I ever met and he had hands of gold, and was happy to do work for anyone. He was very creative when people asked him to build something for them. He always went the extra mile. Dot often shared how much she loved him and about his generosity and kindness toward her. He deeply cared about ALL of his family members. His love for Phyllis was endearing!!! He genuinely cared for others!!! May he rest in GOD’S peace!🙏 My sincere condolences to his children and grandchildren, to you Phyllis, who he loved so much, and to all of his other family members. GOD BLESS! 🙏♥️
My Uncle Mark was truly an amazing great person. I’m glad to have had him for the last 5 years in my life. I will think of him everyday.

Mark was very unique to this world. We had such a kind heart. The very few people today have the 20 years I’ve been around them there’s not one bad memory he treated me like a son. Not only did I look at him as a father-in-law but as a father. Not only was he an excellent Carpenter he was an amazing artist. There’s so many things INot only was he an excellent Carpenter he was an amazing artist.He was the greatest grandfather a child and a have. Mark was truly amazing. He showed me that there is good people in this world truly good people and he was one of them. I will truly miss him more than words can express. I hope you’re on a train going straight to heaven Mark. God speed
