So many wonderful, some hilarious, memories of a great friend. Godspeed Mark! My thoughts and prayers are with Nancy and her family.

Our prayers go out to Mark's family and friends at this time. We have not seen him in some time but we will always remember what a wonderful person he was. God Bless

From an early age, I am left with a lot of great memories of Mark and things we did. Cherished. We send our sympathies to Nancy and family and share a little of your grief.

I worked very closely with Mark in Accounting for several years, including travelling with him on audits. He was a great guy. He loved his family, often speaking of his wife and children. He loved babysitting the grandchildren. I also remember he had fond memories of attending Notre Dame games with his sons. Mark you will be missed. A great guy. My condolences to the family.
