I extend our deepest sympathy to Mark's loving family. Mark and I were lifelong friends. We were classmates at Hardey Prep (1955-1959) which had only 8 students in our grade so we were very close. He and I loved baseball and attended Cubs games and watched Ernie Banks as kids. We then attended Loyola Academy (1960-1963) together. Mark was well-liked and admired by his peers. We enjoyed many laughs and fun times together. I knew and respected his Mom and Dad and, as high school teachers, they certainly endowed Mark with a love of learning and achievement. Mark was a wonderful man with a deep love for his family. He led a full life and worked hard to excel in his career. And so, dear Mark, rest well and keep watch over your family and friends.

Please accept my family's sincere condolences on the passing of your beloved Mark. He was truly a wonderful person. His work ethic and professionalism was only surpassed by his love and dedication for his beautiful family. I am so fortunate to have had Mark as a mentor and role model. He made a wonderful, life-long impression on me. I am forever grateful and will miss him. May God bless Mark and may a perpetual light shine upon him, Kathleen, and on the souls of all of the faithfully departed. Amen!

Mark had a fantastic laugh. When I was in my teens, he was the dad that was so approachable and easy to respect and appreciate. Julie and Mark-you have another angel on the wings. In my thoughts...
