Mark: You’ve gotta find the silver lining
Me: I don’t see one
Mark: Then we’ll have to make one …
Mark a truly remarkable man that it is my honor to have known.

Mark was a gentle soul who cared about people – all people. He exemplified what it meant to be a caring person. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was simply a nice, giving person. I hadn’t seen him in several years; however, I will always remember his gentle, charitable nature. God bless Mark and his entire family.

Anyone who loved old cars loved Mark. It was a subject we always had time for and I know that somewhere, even now, he is at a great car show taking pictures. We’ll miss him but trust that the family will follow in his footsteps – let the car clubs be your extended family forever.

Every Tuesday afternoon at 3.30pm Mark would stop by my desk on his way to a meeting just to say “helloooo”. I will truly miss seeing him.
