    I worked with Mark in the back in the 90’s at Mid America Shirt Printers. Mark was such a kind person with a great sense of humor, I enjoyed working with him. I know he will be missed.

    I worked with Mark about 10 years ago at a local sports marketing firm. He was a really nice guy and was always quick with a joke and a smile. I enjoyed getting to know him and send my condolences to his friends and family.

    The Park Rodge Chicagoland contingent knee him as Burla, a great friend and host on our pilgrim ages to Husker nation. Ave arque Vale. As the mayor said to Ditro in The last Hurrah, “How do you thank a.guy for a.million laughs.”

    I knew Mark from our high school days in Park Ridge. We tried to connect a few years ago, but Mark caught the flu! He was always fun to be around and will be missed! He was one of the “boys!”

    I was deeply saddened to read of Mark’s passing. Mark and I were terrific friends for many years. I got to experience YES with Mark, his love for that band was contagious. We went to many other live shows together and Mark would always give me a history lesson on the musicians! Mark had some of the best of friends and on the “boys weekends” he always found a way to include me in some of the FUN! I miss Mark. RIP Mang!

    So sorry to hear about Mark’s passing. I worked with him at Electronic Media One. I remember him fondly. I missed the announcement because I lost my mother the very same day. I will pray for you all.

    We became friends with Mark in the journalism department at Creighton University. We were reacquainted when our son John was in Shane’s class at Maplewood Preschool and years later at Roncalli High School.

    We’re so sorry to hear of Mark’s death. Mark was so positive and outgoing. He was always ready to discuss Creighton basketball. It was a pleasure to be around him. Our condolences to Shane and Chris.
