crossed over on a desert night, March 3, 2011 in Cave Creek, Arizona. Mark died after a long battle and will be deeply missed. He was 54 years old. As creative as he was mechanically adept, he could take scrap metal and weld it into functional art. Mark loved mountain biking, flying, sailing, and playing his guitar. A wry lyricist who could make up a song about the day's events on the spot, he will be remembered most for his quick wit and innate sweetness. He is survived by his partner, Michele DeLacey; mother, Sherri Chessen; father, Robert Fink bine; siblings Terri Arnold, Steven Finkbine,Tracy Atwell, Jody Zarkos, Kristin Atwell, their spouses, children, and many, many adored friends. Mark is preceded in death by his beloved girl, "Eighty" and is surely reunited with her in the sky. A memorial service will be held Saturday, March 19th, 11am at the Franciscan Renewal Center, 5808 E Lincoln Drive, Scottsdale, 85253. The service will be held outdoors at the Altar Ramada followed by an open house hosted by Mark's mother at the home of Kristin Atwell and Dennis Ford in Scottsdale. A gathering hosted by his father will be held that same day at 4pm at Los Olivos North, 15544 North Pima Road, Scottsdale, 85260. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Southern Arizona Children's Advocacy Center, www.soazadvocacy.org.
