Mark Lawrence Gehring of Willis, TX, was born March 2, 1957 in Story City, Iowa and passed away November 17, 2016 in Conroe, Texas during heart surgery. His most memorable qualities are his humility, his huge and tender heart, his desire to protect, and his deep wish to make the world a better place. His legacy and call to his survivors is a willingness to challenge what seems to be true, to doubt our own assumptions, and to extend tender kindness to all people.

Mark was preceded in death by his parents Lawrence and Shirley Boyle Gehring; a teenaged niece, Jonna; aunts and uncles, Jack VanSickel, Edith (Leo Bryant), Grace (Tom Meighan), Ethel (Dale Grimes), and Bob (Lorraine (Boyle). Mark is survived by three siblings, Mary (Con Rees), Russell (Gina, Sandy), Joan Kuhl; nieces and nephews: Nathan Willhite (Tyfani), Stephan (Brandi), Ruschelle (Jeff), Joe (Annie) Kuhl, Ben Kuhl; aunts and uncles Jerry (Marilyn) Gehring, Joy VanSickel, Norma Gehring, Janet Luise (Tom Hickey); and many cousins.

The family wants to recognize Conroe Regional staff for their kindness and quality care and The Ark, his local family and spiritual community. A celebration of his life will be held November 27, 2016 at 1:00 pm at The Ark, 450 Humble Tank Rd, Conroe, TX 77304. Any memorials may be sent to The Ark.
