Mark was a good man and I was sadden to learn of his death. I knew Mark through the Chamber, meeting him first through Las Vegas Rotary, where we had both served as President, and then as a Charter Member of the Leadership Las Vegas program. Mark moved the Chamber ahead in his years as President and he was a real asset to our community. My prayers are with Sharon and the family and his many, many friends here.
