Mark was a genuinely loyal person who demonstrated great patience and a positive attitude. He lived out his mission as a Christian by serving others with his many talents and abilities.

He had a quick wit about him in his teaching and interactions with those close to him. Mark had years of experience coaching kids in sports who looked up to him. He loved traditions and kept those with family and friends. Mark loved his children and encouraged them to work hard and be well-rounded individuals.
