When I think back to our days in college I can see Mark with his razor sharp mind, his lit up eyes and invincible will. He had so much courage we all could just grab on and he would drag us behind. Those years are indelible in the minds of the group who gathered in the mid 70's at the University of Utah art department. It's now 40 years later and when I think of those days, Bangerter is right in the heart of the action. It was an amazing time.
I am so sorry for all of us in the loss of Mark. He will always be with me and, I am sure with many who knew him.
Deepest condolences to Mark's loved ones. I will always be grateful for the friendship and many great memories beginning as undergraduates together at the U of U Art Department. Loved his work, loved him. One of a kind. Blessings and Godspeed to you, dear Mark.
I first met Mark at a plein air festival in Escalante, Utah. Later we had the opportunity to discuss art and artists at Woody's tavern in Moab. Mark was generous in sharing his knowledge of art and life. He will be missed by all who knew him. My condolences to Jack and the rest of his family.
Mark was always so plesant and cordial. He was so talented in so many ways and inspired many. I am happy he was with his "boys". God bless his great family.
I'm sorry to hear of Marks' passing. I remember the fun times we had as our families would gather to celebrate birthdays for holidays. I hope he finds the peace he seemed to always be seeking.
I'm sorry to hear about Mark's passing. He was one one of my high school buddies and we saw each other a few times over the years since then. About five years ago we saw each other at an art festival in Escalante, Utah and had a good visit. He was a talented man and will be missed.
I'm saddened to hear of Mark's death. We shared the graduate studio when working toward an MFA and always enjoyed a good argument, as well as a good joke.
Mark and I painted together as undergraduates at the U. of U. His talent and zest for living still resonate among those of us who studied with him.
I remember painting with him up Immigration Canyon in below freezing weather. I recall Mark's comment on how unspreadable the frozen paint was. He thrived on challenges!
So sorry to hear of Mark. My condolences to the family. We had good times in Art school at the U of U and I know that Mark lived to make Art. He lives on in our memories.
great and wild times times in undergraduate school...rest now buddy....you etched a big path.
Sorry for your loss. Knew Mark when he was a teenager and then before he moved to Boise. Always really liked him and tremendous respect for him as a person and a talent.
