March 17, 1952 – December 14, 2012

Mark Allan BENZON, 60, of St. Cloud, Minnesota. Mark was born and raised in Cincinnati graduating from Aiken H.S. in 1970. He settled in Minnesota, specifically St. Cloud for the last three.

Mark had many friends and family, all whom he loved dearly. He loved to laugh and reminisce. He enjoyed fishing, talking with people, listening to music and reading. His was not an easy life. The disease of alcoholism plagued him for years and it ultimately took his life. He will be missed by many and remembered with affection. May he finally be at Peace.

His mother and father, Stan and Bergie, and wife Cecilia preceded Mark in death. Surviving are his daughter Christal Eve; sister Lexi Glossi (Tom) of Ft. Collins, CO; brother Mike Benzon (Shelia) of Buckner, MO; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Mark's ashes will be interred in Ft. Collins, CO next to his beloved mother following a simple, family graveside memorial in the spring.

If desired, memorials may be directed to Hospice of Cincinnati.
