My deepest condolences to Marks family and friends. I went to school from 1-12grade. After graduation I joined the Arm and lost touch with him. He was a wonderful person. Gentlemen and a scholar. He will be missed.

My deepest sympathy to all of Mark's family. During our high school career, he was a good friend. We certainly had fun performing in our senior class play together. May you find comfort in all the happy memories together. God bless!

My heart goes out to Mark's family. Mark was so special. He was one of our young men at Spargursville CCCU when my husband Rex Fannin pastored there in the 70's & 80's. He was loved by many including us. I know Louise & Dick were there to welcome him home.
