Mark Brett McCloud Obituary

Mark Brett McCloud, 44, of Woodland, CA, passed away December 3, 2015 as the result of illness. He was born July 7, 1971 in Oroville, the son of Roah and Ethel (Miller) McCloud. He attended Loma Rica schools and graduated from Marysville High School in 1989.

Mark graduated from the San Francisco College of Mortuary Science and was a mortician and funeral director until he suffered a debilitating stroke at the age of 28. Even after his stroke, Mark remained sharp and witty. His family and friends did, however, miss his exceptional singing voice. He was always very appreciative of friends that visited or wrote to him.

In his younger years, Mark enjoyed the outdoors and especially enjoyed camping at Ophir Claims in Plumas County with his family on many spring and summer weekends. He also enjoyed spending time at Collins Lake on hot summer evenings. As a young adult, he preferred the finer things in life. He spoke some German and traveled to Germany with his close friend, Richard. He lived in Palo Alto before settling in Ventura. After his stroke, he moved to Cottonwood Health Care Center in Woodland to be closer to family.

Mark is survived by his mother, Ethel, of Loma Rica and his brother, Roah, and family of Yuba City. He was preceded in death by his father Roah McCloud Sr. He also leaves beloved aunts, uncles and cousins.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by Green Valley Mortuary and Cemetery at 3004 Alexandrite Dr., Rescue, CA 95672. Viewing will be at the funeral home this Friday, December 11, 2015, at 1pm, and the service will follow at 2pm. There will be a Celebration of Life service at Loma Rica Community Church at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Loma Rica Community Church at 11234 Loma Rica Rd., Marysville, CA 95901.
