Mark was born to Elizabeth Sosa-Flores on May 18th, 1981 and was born with the effects of FASD as well as with a heart defect and underwent surgery within 3 days of being born. Regardless of his struggles, Mark fought hard for his life. At the age of 2, Mark was taken into foster care by Gary and Jeanine Brown. At the age of 12, Mark was fully adopted into the Brown family and continued to flourish. Despite his many heart and lung surgeries, Mark was able to get into competitive bowling for the Special Olympics. His hobbies included drawing, making gourmet popcorn, playing Mario on Nintendo Wii, and watching the occasional film at the movie theatres. Mark Davis was known for his affinity to smile, make friends, and crack jokes. He loved working at the Mount Roberts Tramway, taking orders at the 9th Street Cafe, and working alongside his friends and family at Alaskan Dames Consignment Shop. Mark had many friends, teachers, and caregivers who truly made his life a joy. He is survived by his parents Jeanine and Gary Brown, his mother Elizabeth Sosa-Flores and stepfather Manuel Flores and his siblings Lisa K. Ibias, Craig Brown, April Hotchkiss, Amielsa Sosa Flores, Mariella Sosa, Elvia Koolen, as well as many nieces and nephews. His brother Mike Brown preceded him in death.
