"Stay close to the people who feel like sunshine".
To many people, Mark was like their sunshine, along with an occasional sighting of "the moon".
Mark was a loving husband of 31 years to Pam. He was great man loved by all who knew him. Mark loved to have a good time, joke and make others smile. His family was his everything, and that included puppies, grandpuppies and his friends too. He was always willing to lend a helping hand, or ear, if anyone needed it.
