Not sure what to say?

I am very saddened to hear of Marks passing , i have been dealing with Mark for years and enjoyed many conversations with him about golf , i only collect Australian Golf Memorabilia and he found many wonderful items for my collection , he was always generous and helpful and i am thankful for our relationship , i will miss him .

I knew something was wrong when Mark's ebay listing went dormant.. Mark was always willing to help and educate me in the field of golf
antiques. I feel like I knew Mark through my eBay purchases, emails
and phone calls.


Rest In Peace my friend,
Colin

Met Mark about 30 years ago here in Columbus. Was amazed at his love of golf history. Was fortunate enough to have Mark show me his extensive collection. His love of golf especially the Ryder Cup was outstanding.
Mark was a true gentleman. Thanks for being a great person.
God bless. You're in my thoughts and prayers.

I have no doubt his knowledge far exceeded golf because of his love of history. Every time I look at my extensive British Open(The Open) collection...

Mark was one of the classiest and most honorable men in the golf collecting world. I learned a lot from him and we became friends. We had a mutual respect for each other that he would consign some of his best items in my auction. He was always a joy to speak with and touched so many lives. He will be sorely missed.

When I was preparing my book about great golf collections, I contacted Mark to ask whether he would be interested in participating . Without a moments hesitation he immediately invited me to visit his home in Jupiter and shared his collection as well as providing an interview about how and why he was able to amass the finest collection of rare autographs of golf champions that extended back well over a century. He was very generous with his time and we quickly shared our passion for...
