Dear Kathy, I cannot begin to express how deeply my sympathy runs for you, your boys and other family members. Such a tremendous loss, my heart is just breaking for you and yours. Mark has been one of my favorite people for over 50 years now, since grade school days at St. Thomas. He was always an angel in front of the nuns. But with their backs to the class—well, not so much. In high school he was a shining example of how to treat fellow classmates. So kind to everyone, no matter how popular or how “nerdy” they might have been considered by other classmates. He seemed to instinctively understand that every kid had feelings—and he would never dream of hurting them. Kind of a rarity in those fragile-ego teen years, I think. I also had the privilege of working with Mark in later years at Multi-Ad. He remained true to his inner core. He was kind to all, fun to be around and talk to, remained easy going—and continued to warm hearts with his never ending smile. And everyone there loved him for it. Mark's earthly presence will be missed by me, and his other former classmates and co-workers, and anyone else he crossed paths with I'm sure. He was a special person. Mark lived like he meant it—he was here. And I will remember his kind soul always.

I met Mark in the early 70's we probably had more fun than we should have. The thing I will always remember about Mark is the way he treated everyone around him. I have not seen Mark in sometime but think of him and good old days often. I am so sorry Kathy and family. Thoughts and Prayers to all.

Mark Firmand was one man that was an inspiration to me growing up. It was the way the guy handled himself and treated others. I believe it came from the way he was brought up . It is something many people that I know would be better people had they learned and practiced that, myself included. This has always stuck with me. It is something for me that takes work. Mark just had that naturally. I hate it when we lose the good guys. My condolences to his wife, Kathy, and his family.

I worked with Mark at Multi Ad several years ago. He always had a gentle, kind spirit about him. Very soft spoken and a fantastic smile. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. My prayers are with his family at this time. I am sure he is standing next to Our Lord smiling down on all of us. He will be dearly missed by many.

I am so sorry to hear this. Mark was one of those special people who touched everyone he encountered. Always happy, smiling & never negative. I will forever remember his kind, gentle words and how he always smiled.
God be with you in this time of pain. Praying He replaces the pain with wonderful memories in a quick time frame.
The entire Schmitt family sends their love.
