Mark Nebel
Nebel, Mark Roy

Mark Roy Nebel (born Jan 5, 1949) will keep a watch on us as he has joined the heavens on June 18, 2014 on the Isla De Ometepe, Nicaragua.

Before Mark graduated from Neenah High School in 1967, he had attended local Neenah schools as well as the Bembridge School, Isle of Wight, England. He went on to receive his degrees in Philosophy and Religion from Beloit College. Mark traveled widely - sailing schooners - to India - to the Philippines, before enlisting in the Marines Corps. Following an honorable discharge, Mark's most recent life's works included education, genetic research, medical equipment repair, research of personal curiosities. He spent his latest years researching his love of words (Lexicology and Etymology ) while living in Costa Rica and Nicaragua.

On his persistent journeys his kindness and giving touched many. He never forgot those that he met or shared time. His finest efforts were those given to his aging mother as he was always there for her in her time of need. Found in Mark's belongings a quote from Exodus, "And if your neighbor cries out to me, I will listen for I am compassionate."

Survivors include his twin sister, Mary Nebel, Menasha, WI, brother, Armin (Cindy) Nebel, Stevens Point, WI; brother, John Nebel, Menasha; sister, Jane Ann (Richard) Milheiser, Eau Claire, WI, along with several of his favorite nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by brothers, Steven and Tom and parents, Jane and Jack.

Donations can be made in Mark's memory to Wisconsin Nicaragua Partners (1209 Fremont Street, Stevens Point, WI 54481) for a library on the Isle De Ometepe, Nicaragua or to St. Thomas Church of Menasha, Wisconsin.

Wish I could have spent some time with him last time he was visiting Neenah.
He was warm and sensitive with a great smile.
