    Mark was my father. He was a part of my every fiber and I never realized it until he was gone. It’s been almost a year since he left us. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about him and remember. Gone too soon. <3 xoxo

    We knew Mark through our daughter’s friendship from kindergarten to present. Mark had a beautiful soul shared often in the form of a huge hug, a kind word and a smile for everyone he encountered. My daughter loved him…we loved him too. Becki, Allie, Tyler and Christian – we love you all.

    Mark always greeted me with a bear hug laughing, “Hi, sis.” His stories about driving the highways of Kansas City in his giant truck filled with concrete kept us in touch with his daily life. He relished all kinds of music and dance and had an innate sense of rhythm that he passed to his three children, Allie, Tyler, and Christian. Mark’s love of his family, the kids, meant the world to him. And his mom, who is one of the gentlest people and spent holidays with us the last 20+ years, and he had a special bond. We loved Mark and will miss him deeply. He was a truly nice person and a brave soul. Rest in peace, Mark.

    Mark was our brother-in-law. He was Uncle Mark to our kids and a great Dad to his own. There was never a better one! We live far away and so we didn’t get to spend a lot of time with Mark over the years. But every minute you spent with him, his kindness and decency and his love for his children would draw you to him like a warm fire softly glowing on a cold winter day. We hope that Mark has gone on to a better place. We will miss him very, very much.
