Mark loved life and lived it to the fullest. It was his nature to put others first and the true essence of his character was on full display when helping others in need. His contagious smile and laughter often elevated the mood of those around him. Whether it was a kind word, a helping hand, or a self-depreciating joke, Mark possessed a natural ability to put others at ease, finding levity and humor in almost any situation he encountered. He enjoyed his tow dogs, Beowulf and Corporal. He loved his family, his friends, his marines, his Firefighters/Paramedics, His CrossFit family, and his country. Most of all he loved and worshipped the love of his life, Angie, and their children, Chase and Emerson.
Mark’s friends and family are excited to celebrate his life on Nov. 17, 2018, at #HonorMark 5k. Please join us to honor this wonderful friend, brother, father, husband & hero.
