Mark Daniel Schnell

Mark Daniel Schnell, 51, of Rochester passed away peacefully of natural causes on November 28, 2018 at Mayo Clinic Hospital, Saint Marys Campus.

Mark was born on August 17, 1967 in Rochester to Daniel and Diane Schnell. He graduated from Mayo High School in 1985. He attended University of Wisconsin Steven’s Point for two years. Upon returning to Rochester, he worked at IBM. In 1995, he met Deanna Gosse. They were married on March 31, 2007. In 1998, Mark began working for Gopher Distributing (later Northern Distributing) in Rochester. Mark “bled purple” and was a devoted MN Vikings fan. He loved spending time with family, camping, campfires, and was a true “jokester”, making many people laugh throughout his life. He will be truly missed.

He is survived by his wife, Deanna; two sons, Austin and Nicholas, all of Rochester; two step-daughters, Heather and Rebecca Evenson, both of Wabasha; his brothers, Jeff Schnell and Mike (Tracy) Schnell, both of Byron; and grandchildren, Rilynn, Mackenzie, Oaklyn, August, and Thomas.

May God’s word & the prayers of others provide you comfort at this time & each day to come, as we await the fulfillment of his promises!


 

Mark,


I sit here today still in total disbelief of your passing.  From our days at Kellogg and then graduating at Mayo (Class of 85'), thank you for bringing so much laughter into every day life.  You made friends with so many people because you simply loved life.  I found it fitting that you had a camp site at Jellystone in Warrens, WI.  "The happiest place on earth".  That was you.  Thank you for your high school friendship.  It was great to circle back around when our son's played football together at Century for a couple years.  May you forever Rest in Peace Mark and thank you for being you.  God Bless you and your family.  Peace my friend!

My condolences to the Schnell family.


It's been a long time since seeing Mark. His impression will be everlasting.


God Bless

Mark, a neighbor boy, we watched grow up.  Cuter than a bugs ear!  A smile you’d never forget.  He always remembered you, always had a kind word or two. He left us too young and will be missed.  Hopefully your good memories and good times that you did have with him will help you through your grief.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss! You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers! 

Jeff, Mike, and Tracy


My family and I extend are condolences to you and your children Abby. Jack, Rylie, and Payton and recognize the loss of your brother and uncle.  May you find peace.
