Obituary Condolences

Mark Edward Gordon, AKA "Fumark", passed away on Monday, January 21, 2008 in his home with family and friends by his side. He was 39 years old.

Mark sculpted a unique world; a world of film, music, art, literature, and soft cheesy foods. He was nothing if not wide ranging in his passions. Blade Runner and the Fountain stood beside Rumble in the Bronx and Monty Python and the Holy Grail. In his home one could as easily hear Porcupine Tree, Peter Gabriel, or Abba. Mark was an avid collector whose vast accumulations included the finest genre literature, Manga Comics, Gundam Robots, fine art, pop art; from Steven King to Frank Miller, from Klimpt to Dr. Seuss, he loved it all. But Mark was more than his plethora of interests and an encyclopedic repository of arcane knowledge. He was first and foremost, a man of extraordinary intellect, compassion, and character. Mark's toughness and compassion was an inspiration to all of those who came into his circle, but to be true to Mark, we must recall that his greatest love was reserved for his wife Victoria, his son Josh, and his family and innumerable friends.

He is survived by his wife Victoria, his son Josh, and his parents Jeanne and Charles Gordon of Centralia, Washington. He is also survived by his sister Melissa Lowrey, her husband Mike, their children Nick, Alyson, and Samantha of Tumwater, Washington, and his sister Ashley Gordon and her son Brayden of Lawton, Oklahoma. He is additionally survived by his father-in-law Richard Johnson and mother-in-law Alma Johnson, brother-in-law Mike "MJ" Johnson and sister-in-laws Shari and Jenny Johnson, nephews Ben, Mikey, Nate and precious little Cayden.

Viewing will be on Friday, January 25th at 11:00 AM at Oakwood Chapel, 3301 Paul Sweet Road in Santa Cruz. A Celebration of Life will begin at 2:00 PM.
