Mark Milton Blubaugh, of Belleville, passed away Oct. 9, 2019 after enjoying a well-deserved ride on his cigar boat on an unseasonably warm fall day. He was a union pipefitter and had just completed nine consecutive 12-hour days on a project. Mark was born in Midland on July 28, 1958 and attended Bullock Creek Schools. He moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area in 1985 where he learned the pipefitting trade. He remained in Texas until the mid-1990s when he returned to Michigan. Mark enjoyed working on classic cars, boating, gardening and the outdoors in general. He will be remembered for his kind and generous spirit.
He is survived by his siblings, Norine Hodder, Dawn (Jim) Culver, Steven Blubaugh and Dwight (Mimi) Blubaugh; and uncles, Bob Blubaugh and David Ziemann. He was preceded in death by his parents, Milton and Amy (Ziemann) Blubaugh.
There will be a service for Mark on Saturday, Oct. 26, 2019 at 1 p.m. at Glad Tidings Church on Coleman Road with Pastor Aaron Zeiler officiating. Arrangements have been entrusted to Berry Funeral Home of Shepherd.
I'm deeply saddened to hear of Marks passing. He was such a kind, special man. There is no other like him. Sweetness. He texted me on his various jobs and always sent pictures of jobs, his classic cars, and boats. I will miss him forever. And his visits. May he rest in beautiful Heaven

I'm deeply saddened to hear of Marks passing. He was a great loyal friend that I will miss forever. We have many memories together, the Woodward dream cruise he would take me. Him sending me pictures of his cars and boats and his workplace wherever he was he would text me. He took care of my niece and her canaries. His heart was full of kindness and they just don't make people like this anymore and I'm shocked to hear of his passing and Sad, may you rest in peace my beautiful friend thanks for the memories!!!
