I have known Mark ever since I was old enough to ride motorcycles. If i could use couple words to describe him it would be full throttle. I always thought he had the coolest ideas and I always look up to him. We were suppose to go fishing last summer but he had to take his new boat apart to make it better, that was Mark. My thoughts are with the his family.
Til we meet again on the other side, and what a glorious day that will be, my dear friend! It was an honor and privileged to be involved with Mark's care the last few months of his life. He was there to help me through some difficult transitions and I'm so glad I could be there for him. My heart-felt gratitude for Mark and his family, Bev, Linda, and Scott, for allowing me to be a part of that very bittersweet process. Lots of good memories...I'll miss him terribly. He'll always have a special place in my heart.
Love and Light, Evelyn
My earliest memories of growing up in Edwall were with Mark. Oh how much fun we had, and trouble we got into!! I can't believe he is gone. I am blessed to have known Mark and spent many days hunting, fishing and spending time with a good friend and a great man. Until I see you again, happy hunting my friend.
For our loss is Heavens gain. There are no great words to say other than we will miss you my friend. I had the pleasure of many hunting seasons with Mark, Pete and Deral in Spokane and last year in Oklahoma. Mark was an exceptional hunter and I don't know anyone who enjoyed the scouting and planning like Mark did. I have so many funny memories of our experiences and of a great man named Mark. May the family and friends in Reardon have strength during this difficult time.
Mark was without question my best friend. Our friendship started in the 7th grade and we shared 37 years of adventure. Mark was wild at heart and could turn any event into a potentially dangerous and exciting experience. I will miss my buddy and all the hunting, fishing, and excitement but the memories will last forever. Thanks Mark for touching my life and always being my friend. Pete
