Fatheree, Mark R. - Akron  
Mark R. Fatheree Mark R. Fatheree lived out a full bucket list of joy and excitement before he passed away on May 1, 2016 after bravely battling an extensive illness. He was born and raised in Akron, Ohio, before moving to the Chicagoland area, where he lived for the past 11 years. Mark was an avid fisherman, golfer, bowler, and national champion of always being the warmest presence in every room he entered. As a chef, his plates were always made with love. Though not as famous as David Bowie or Prince, the void he leaves behind will be felt just as profoundly by Mark Fatheree fans everywhere. His love for Las Vegas, The Entertainment Capitol of the World, was a perfect fit for his personality as a consummate host and entertainer. He and his wife Lisa enjoyed culinary adventures together and shared the joys of true love with everyone around them. Mark is survived by his soul-mate Lisa; his loving parents, Donald Sr. and Annabelle Fatheree; brothers, Donald Jr. (Kandy) Fatheree, David (Chrissy) Fatheree; sister, Pamela Dain; along with many nieces and nephews. "Moke" is also survived by his in-laws, friends and hundreds of other people who were lucky enough to be filled with joy through conversation and his beaming smile and laughter. A celebration of Mark's beautiful life will take place at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 6, 2016 at Schermesser Funeral Home, 600 E. Turkeyfoot Lake Road, Akron, Ohio 44319. Family and friends may call from 3 p.m. until the time of service at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, his family asks that donations be made in Mark's name to a charity of their choice or to Eversight, 6700 Euclid Ave. Suite 101, Cleveland, Ohio 44103 http://eversightvision.org/online-contribution.htm .
