Mark James Cavil

Roscoe, IL - (April 13, 1956 - January 5, 2019)

Mark James Cavil, 62, passed away unexpectedly on January 5, 2019 at University Hospital in Madison, WI after a brief illness.

Mark was born in Green Bay, WI to James and Janice (Manders) Cavil. Mark met his wife, Joan, carpooling home from UW-Stout and they wed in 1977. Mark graduated from UW-Stout in 1978 with a Bachelors Degree in Industrial Technology and later earned an Associates Degree in Electronics from Waukesha County Technical College.

Fives Giddings & Lewis in Fond du Lac, WI employed Mark for over 30 years in all aspects of manufacturing technology. Mark and Joan moved to Roscoe, IL in 2018. He was most recently employed by Collins Aerospace where both of his children also work. Mark and Joan enjoyed daily contact with their children and grandchildren...a dream come true for all of them.

Mark was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and son. He had a passion for family and friends. Mark had a curious mind and was known as "Mr. Fix It." He created wonderful memories as he watched movies with family, played marbles and card games, swam with his granddaughters, and traveled on vacations near and far. Mark hugged with immense love and lived his love by lending a hand on countless projects.

Mark will be forever remembered by his best friend and wife of 41 years, Joan (Macco); their children, Luke (Melissa) Cavil and Sara (Keith) Dexter; and grandchildren, Remi and Hailey Dexter. He is survived by his parents, James and Janice Cavil, sisters, Durann (Don) Onorato, and Barb (Brian) Kufalk; brother, Jeff (Sue) Cavil; and many sisters and brothers in-law; over 30 nieces and nephews; dear friends; and his dog, Coco.

A Celebration of Mark's Life will be held on Saturday, January 19th at Cross and Crown Lutheran Church, 7404 Elevator Road, Roscoe, IL. Visitation will be held from 9:30-11:30 am followed by a Memorial Service. The family is very grateful to the University Hospital staff for their compassionate care over the course of Mark's short illness. A memorial fund has been established at Cross and Crown Lutheran Church in Mark's honor.
