Mark C. Bouzard
Mark Carlson Bouzard passed away unexpectedly on April 6, 2008, at the age of 51. A loving and loved brother, son, father and friend, Mark will be deeply missed by all who knew him and appreciated his humor, intelligence and unique way of looking at the world. Mark was born on May 16th, 1956, at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, the second son of the late Col. (Ret) Walter C. Bouzard and Virginia Gault Bouzard. He grew up at military installations around the nation and world, including both coasts of the United States, Panama and Japan. Upon his father's final posting to Fort Sam Houston, Mark attended MacArthur High School in San Antonio, graduating in 1973. He attended Texas A&M and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental design in 1977, having completed his course of studies in three years. Mark worked in a variety of customer relations positions, including years spent with AAA, USAA, and most recently, with the Marriott Corporation. However, he was never defined by his work. Mark was an artist and poet, a creative soul with a brilliant mind. He displayed his art at various venues throughout San Antonio, and gifts of his artwork are among his family's most treasured possessions. Mark is survived by his son, Brendon Nicholas Bouzard of New York; his mother, Virginia Bouzard of San Antonio; brother, Walter C. Bouzard of Waverly, Iowa and his spouse, Ramona; brother, James C. Bouzard of Wimberley and his spouse, Gayle; sister, Lynn Alderman of Wimberley and her spouse, Brian; sister, Johanna Posey of Canyon Lake and her spouse, Steven. He is also survived by his good friend and ex-wife, Lynn Evans Bouzard, and her three children; Joseph A. Scooter Cooper, Chris Cooper and Elizabeth McCutcheon and their children. He also leaves behind nephews, Zane Gordon-Bouzard, Green Bouzard and Gabriel Bouzard. Mark was confirmed in the Roman Catholic tradition in recent years and held his faith with thanks and conviction. A Holy Rosary will be held Monday, April 14th, 7:00 P.M. at Sunset Northwest Funeral Home Chapel, 6321 Bandera Rd. A Mass of Burial will be held on Tuesday, April 15th, 10:00 A.M. at Prince of Peace Catholic Church, 7893 N. Grissom, with Rev. Msgr. Pat Cronin celebrant. Interment will follow at Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to a charity of one's choice. Sunset Northwest Funeral Home.

I had the privilege of meeting Mark during his training at our reservation center. He was relatively quiet and focused on his work, but every now and then, he would make a clever and insightful remark. He became a great asset to his team and a source of admiration and inspiration for his manager and peers. I will remember him fondly and miss his friendly 'hellos' in the break room and hallways.

My heartfelt condolences to his family and loved ones.

Mark was a much appreciated member of our Marriott family and we will be forever saddened by this incredible loss. Our deepest condolences go out to his family in their time of grief. Mark and I spoke on many occasions, and I was always impressed with his insight and creativity. No one of his caliber should ever have to depart us so soon. He will be dearly missed.

Our deepest thoughts and endless prayers are with you (my precious angel, LLB) and the Bouzard family. May your happy and positive memories of Mark bring you all plenty of comfort. I wish I have met and know Mark, however, I still feel his presence everywhere, especially his wonderful art.

All our love,

My heart and prayers go out to Brendon and the entire family. Mark was such a decent man and kind soul. He would cheerfully do all he could for a friend and ask for nothing more in return than a smile and thanks. I will always remember his wit, intelligence, and engaging style. He meant a lot to me as a friend, and I will miss him dearly. May the Lord rest his soul.

I first met Mark at our 6AM ACTS breakfasts. I had the opportunity of sitting next to him on a few occasions. I have a tendency to get excited...but because of his quiet deliberations, (though he was not aware of it)...he influenced me to think things through more thoroughly before speaking. My thoughts and prayers are with Mark's family and I pray for the repose of his soul.
