MARK YOU WERE A GREAT FRIEND,THERE WERE MEMORIES AND GOODTIMES SPEND WITH YOU AND YOUR SISTER. EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE IN HEAVEN, YOU'RE NEVER FAR AWAY.. MY GOD ALWAYS BLESS YOUR WIFE AND CHILDREN..FOR THEY HAVE LOST THE GREATEST LOVE...YOU.....
It has been 4 months and it stil seems like yesterday you were taken from my best friend in the entire world and Susan, I pray time helps heal them in mind and spirit. I know with everything you guys went through in life to be together and be happy, you will certainly be watching over them from now on and be standing there waiting when the time comes to be together again. I'm so glad you were a part of my life for a time and even more glad that you brought so much joy to Tammy and gave her so many happy memories the last few years. We love you and have you constantly on our minds and in our hearts.
I didn't know mark as well as many who have posted did, but I did get to meet him several times and he always seemed like a great guy. Even more so the way that Tammy talks about him you could really tell that he was a great husband. Tammy, it's somewhat difficult for me to tell you out-loud because I really don't know what to say but I want you to know that if there is anything I can do for you, just let me know.
My thoughts and prayers got to Mark and his family, I never knew Mark for very long but he was always a hard working funny guy here at the cable company, he always brightened up a dull moment with his banter...we always had a laugh and joke together and that is what i will always remember him for.
Well ( BIG TEX ) thats what we use to call him, I'll be seeing you sometime. buddy...
Prayers to the Santorii family...may God wrap his arms around you all and bring you comfort during this difficult time!! Mark, thank you for your service, RIP!
I remember him he was a great guy on the jfk. although we will never understand why great ppl we love are taken so soon you can know that he is at peace for all eternity. rip my friend
I was the Maintenance Officer aboard the JFK during Desert Shield and Desert Storm and remember Mark very well, extremely hard working and totally dedicated. "My thoughts and prayers go out to Tammy and the entire Santorii family." Jeff & Marta Wisler
You my sweet "wombmate" will NEVER be forgotten! April will forevermore be bittersweet. No one could make me laugh like you did, nor understand me like you did... You always had a piece of me and I always had a piece of you wherever we may have wandered... I'm not sure how I will ever forgive myself for not returning your last call - if I had known it would have been the last time I would have ever heard your voice again, I'm sure I would have been more diligent about returning the call.... No one will ever know the bond we shared - kinda like being an Aggie - From the outside looking in, it can't be understood - from the inside looking out - it can't be explained! I love you Mark with a love no one could ever understand. I always knew what I had in you, I just never imagined you being gone... I'm glad the last 6 months we were in contact as much as we were. Especially this last month - our birth month. Many nights you were the last person I talked to before I went to bed and for that I'm thankful. Thank you for stopping by to visit on your way up to Heaven and letting me know you're ok - I appreciate that! Bob would say, I've always told you what to do from the time we were brought into this world - why should I stop now? So, Mark Anthony - you go and find Mom, Mamaw, Papaw, Aunt MaryNell and Uncle Danny - and you give them all big ol' Texas hugs and kisses and tell them that all of us left here on this ol' nasty earth love them and miss them like crazy.... Get everything ready for us when it's our turn to join you! Rafter MT - cowboy up - Gig 'em - WHOOP!
I am so very sorry to read about the loss of your father. May wonderful memories somehow fill that void.
Tammy & Susan, I am so sorry for your loss. Mark was one of the funniest and fun man. Everytime I saw you two at the softball fields or anywhere all i could do was laugh. My girls loved him bcuz he was so funny and made them feel comfortable. I will miss him and him pickin on me. If you two need ANYTHING please call me.
Love You both, Lisa Sims and family
Tammy and Susan, I am so sorry for your loss. Your entire family are in my thoughts and prayers.
I'm sad to hear the news about Mark i served with Mark in the Navy he's a friend and a shipmate he will be deeply missed. May god bless the Santori family and look after them. RIP MARK!!
To express our deep sympathy to you on your loss. We thank Mark for serving our country in the U.S. Navy during Desert Storm. Because of you & other young men & women we have our freedom in this great country. May God's Speed Be With This Sailor & His Family.
Mark, I have not talked to you much since after high school, but you always had a place in my heart, because of the time we shared together. You will never be forgotten. May goad be with your family and friends during this time.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Mark, I love you with all my heart and though I don't understand the reason you where taken from us so early I do believe that God has a plan for all of us. Every day you told me that I was the best thing that ever happened to you but in my eyes it was the other way around . I will miss your beautiful smile and loud wonderful laugh and I know that heaven is a more joyous place with you there. I am not sure what I will do without you but I do know that with you watching over Susan, Dillon and Me only good things can come to us. I love you with all my heart and miss you more than I can ever explain. One day I will be by your side again. I love you my sweet Mark. Rest in Peace.
I'm sorry to here about your loss of Mark, or as I remember him as Santorii. I had served with him on the JFK during Desert Storm. I worked in the Cats. I remember him always having a smile on his face. May Gob bless and comfort you all during this difficult time! Farewell shipmate!
to Ressie, Patsy and Tammy, I am so sorry to hear of your loss, my hearts and prayers pour out to you and your family. You know where to find me if you ever need anything.
deepest condolences, Michelle Sowles and family
Mark was so kind and accepting when this city girl landed in Iola. We tried to be sweethearts, but made much better friends. His love for his family was so strong and tender- what an example to the world. When I feel a "cool breeze" I will forever be reminded of my good friend Mark.
We are thinking and praying for you guys. Love you dearly Kelly.
our thoughts and prayers are with you through this sadness. lord god bless this family we will miss you mark.
michael glaspie and family kelly,madie,and gage
I'll miss You, see ya later Gumby!
Right from the start Mark always made me feel like part of the family. I use to look forward to his trips to Texas knowing he would make sure to find a place to park his "rig" and stay with us a few days. I knew I had to have plenty of Blue Bell ice cream on hand along with a trip or two to Shipleys donuts :) There was always so much to laugh at when Mark and Scott were together and I will miss those special times. No one gave a better bear hug than Mark. We will love you forever in our hearts.
As a member of the J.F.Kennedy crew who served with him,I send my deepest condolences to the family of a great shipmate. Farewell and following seas. God Bless your family and love ones shipmate. ABEC Jeff Humphreys Ret. (Jax,Fl)
so sorry to hear of your sudden and tragic loss. My thoughts and prayers are with Tammy,Susan and the rest of the family and friends who have lost such a good man way too soon.
My heart breaks for Tammy, Susan and family. I enjoyed the times we spent at the horse shows. Mark was very sweet and supportive of Tammys passion to ride . My thoughts and prayers go out to all the family.
Even though none of us were ready for him to leave so soon, I know that God had a plan for my Uncle Mark. Heaven will be such a warmer place with his teddy bear hugs and the way he use to sing "Desperado" so loud and joyful. I wish I could be there for my family at this time, but I know they are strong enough to overcome this tragedy. Aunt Tammy, you and Susan and the rest of the family will be in my prayers every single night. I know we can get through this, all with God and each other. Uncle Mark, you're going to make an amazing angel.
You will always be the smiling laugh I ran to as a little girl in school. I love you Uncle Mark.
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Praying for you all to find comfort and peace.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Turn to God during this time...he has a plan. Much love.
Our prayers are with you Dillon, Tammy and Susie. Mark, you were our first son-in-law and we thank you for Dillon. May the angels in heaven welcome you with open arms.
Our prayers are with you Dillon, Tammy and Susie. We thank you Mark for Dillon and may the angels in heaven welcome you with open arms.
I met Mark when stationed at Whiting Field in Milton, FL. where he worked maintenance for the crash & salvage dept. He was such a great guy-always smiling, joking around (i can remember that laugh-priceless) and he just had a happy-go-lucky personality....he also married my best friend. Tammy i was with you guys in the very beginning and although life has taken us in different directions- you and mark have always had a place in my heart and my heart breaks for you my friend...God knows it does. I wish there was something I could do or say to magically get you through this horrible time. Know that you, Susan and the family are ever in my thoughts and prayers! God be with you and comfort you...Love Kelley
My heart aches for Tammy,Susan and The Rest of The Family. You are all in my prayers. Just keep in mind that Mark has done something now that we have yet to do, He has gotten to see the face of Jesus. And we can all be there with him someday. What may seem like eternity to us is only seconds to him! I ask that God Take The Pain From Your Hearts and Comfort You Through These Hard Days. R.I.P Mark:
My Heart Is Breaking For The Santorii Family! Just Know That Mark Has Done What We Have Yet To Do, He Has Seen The Face Of Jesus! And We Will All Be In The Same Place One Day! Always Know That He Is Here In Spirit and In Heaven Awaiting The Arrival Of His Loved Ones. What Seem's Like Eternity To Us Is Seconds To Him!
My thoughts and prayers go to Mark's family. I only remember Mark meeting him when I was a kid. I am Jan Vinson's cousin Lynne DeMarcay Lane. My family sends their thoughts and prayers.
Mark you will be missed, I love you and I will miss you knowing the world is without such a great guy breaks my heart. You found love with Tammy and built such a beautiful life, it will all go forward for Tammy and Susan but you will be missed everyday. We will never forget. I will miss your facebook posts and spending holidays together. Tammy's mom said something the other day that plays over and over in my head, God doesn't make mistakes I am quite sure you are the only one that could fill that angel spot on his list. RIP my cousin RIP, we will make sure Tammy and Susan are alright.
Tammy, our thoughts are with you and the family. Our condolences for your loss of a wonderful husband, father and man. We are happy that we had the privilege of meeting Mark on our last trip to Las Vegas. If there is any that we can do to help you, please let us know.
Tammy, there are no words to express how very sorry I am. I pray that God will hold you and the kids in his hands and comfort you during this sad time...
Blessed be Mark, may we meet again!
Mark, THANK YOU for being a wonderful husband to my daughter, and a great father to my granddaughter. We have had a lot of fun and good times together. Not too many mother-in-laws get to race her son-in-law in an Indy car. I forgot who did the fastest speed, but, I'll never forget all the memories we have shared over the years. Rest in peace and be assured that I will watch over Tammy, and Susie until I meet you again in heaven. I love you dearly.
I feel so lucky to have met you. The world truly lost a great man, but Heaven gained a wonderful angel! My thoughts and prayers go out to Tammy, Susan, Jo and the rest of Marks friends and family. Mark will forever be missed.
Words can not describe what I am feeling, but I am so very thankful to have known you nearly all my life and grateful for what you have given me, our son Dillon and a friendship that I cherish. I shall miss your laugh most of all. My prayers and thoughts to Tammy, Susan and Dillon, truly the loves of your life. Rest assured that we are all committed to taking care of them certainly not as well as you did or could have, but to the best of our ability. Goodbye for now....
RIP MARK! GOD SPEED! MY PRAYERS GO OUT TO YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS MAY GOD GIVE THEM PEACE & STRENGTH!
Rest in peace our friend. Dennis and Tricia Gallagher
REST IN PEACE MARK! GOD SPEED! You will be greatly missed by all who new you. My prayers are with you Dillon.

Your light will forever shine. Condolences to the Entire Santorii family. Mark was very genuine. Glad to have called you FRIEND.
Oh little brother....I miss you already.
Words can't describe my feelings, the "What if's..." or the "Why didn't I do this or do that's" during these past few months.
I feel as if I may have taken my little brother for granted at times. Now he is not here for me to apoligize for that.
Our last words to each other was "I love you" and for that I am grateful.
Mark grew up to be his own man with little help or guidance. He would say exactly what was on his mind at the time, like it or not. I respected him for that.
I wish he was visiting me right now, laying down on our couch, but he is gone forever. But never will be forgotten.
I love you little brother.
To Tammy,Susan,Ressie,Patsy,and Ted,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you always. Mark will be sadly missed.
We love you,
Angela, Nick and Joey Piscitelli
