Not sure what to say?

Mark was a great photographer and Dillsburg staple. He will be greatly missed. Thoughts and prayers to the entire family.

A recent friend to Mark of nearly 20 years. We sat nearly every Sunday at the Dillsburg VFW for the weekly drawing. And the past several years playing Bingo at the Legion. Curt and Shirley at the same table more times than not. Covid did not allow our Sunday or Wednesday get together for the past year. The conversations we had will not be forgotten. Funny or serious.
Mark was a wealth of knowledge. It didn't matter when his pager went off announcing a Fire Company ID, he would tell you...

Years ago Mark rescued me in a snowstorm. I had to abandon my car and when the storm settled down my husband arranged for Mark to pick me up and drive me back to my car. Forever grateful for that. RIP Mark. Thank you for all you have done in your lifetime.

He was a wonderful person, he barely knew us as new members of Dillsburg and signed us into the vfw, and he filmed an accident we witnessed, super nice man

I have served Mark, over the years, as a cashier, in many Dillsburg stores, he was always pleasant and wonderful to talk to. I will certainly miss his photography and seeing him around, doing what he loved. The citizens of Dillsburg lost a great guy. My heart aches with your family.

Mark was an awesome person who would go out of his way to help others. His love for photography was a passion that provided so many people with cherished memories. There was never a moment that Mark wasn't without a camera around his neck Mark will always remain in the hearts of my family for being a special friend. RIP Mark!!
Stacey, you are in my thoughts and prayers ❤

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Our deepest sympathy to Stacey & the family. May you always cherish the many memories of Mark. RIP Mark. You will truly be missed.

Rest in peace Mark. You're contributions to the communities you served and belonged to will be missed.
