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.
