Mark always showed me compassion, kindness, and thoughtfulness. Our paths crossed infrequently, but every time we connected, I was touched by Mark's genuine spirit and his willingness to connect. I have been changed for the better because I knew Mark. My hugs and loving energy from afar go out to Mark's family.

I had the pleasure to work for Mark. He was such a kind hearted person. Aways taking the time to listen and respond to you. He became a friend and confident as talked about a common disease that can be so heartless. Such a great person to everyone. Thank you Mrs. Larson for giving us such a wonderful man who had such a kind heart and high standards. His voice would always brighten when he would talk of going to see you. This world will surely miss him. My prayers and thoughts are with you.

Deep condolences for your loss. He is remembered fondly by a great number of people.
We are so grieved to hear of the loss of your son, Mark. We remember meeting him so many years ago, and his kind spirit was so evident. We can only imagine the sadness and grief you are experiencing. May the Lord strengthen you in this tough time. With much love, Steve & Ingrid Ansell
Mark and I met while working at Dayton's department store in 1993 and have remained close friends ever since. We used to love to go dancing and out for breakfast on weekends. He and I were always in competition as to who would get the first Christmas card out for the season and he usually won.
We talked on the phone a lot and he was always cheerful, despite what he was battling. He always had such a positive attitude on life.
Mrs. Larson, I am so sorry for your loss. You had a wonderful son and I will truly miss him.
"Sometimes we have to say goodbye to our friends... So that one day we will say hello again."
Oh Marky. It has been so wonderful being your friend. You’re a wonderful, gentle man and it has truly been my pleasure.
Godspeed to you, and may your mother find peace, knowing how absolutely loved you were.
Mark has left us too soon. He made a positive impact directly on so many people, and indirectly on countless more who benefitted from the health services he put in place. I am blessed to have known him, I will remember him, and I miss him.
I won't know when Christmas is coming without Mark's card, now I need a calendar. Mark was always the most positive person I knew, even in the darkest of times. Even though our paths did not cross very often after high school, I will always remember those cherished moments. God be with you.
Mark was a truly remarkable human being who was honest, genuine, and one of the most caring persons I have ever known in my life. An amazing mentor to all who had the pleasure to know and work with him. He was there to encourage you when you felt defeated or give you a swift kick in the pants if needed. He invested a part of himself in every person he encountered. His smile and laugh brightened any situation. I will miss him dearly but am thankful our paths crossed in this life.
Rosemary, words cannot express the depth of your loss....I can only imagine. I am so grateful that you have enjoyed so many wonderful times and created countless warm and happy memories with your dear son. The pride you have as a mother is felt by those who know and love you, not the least of which was Mark. I know the emptiness and sadness you feel must be great, but not as great as the joy and peace you carry knowing Mark is in heaven, where he was met by the loving arms of Jesus. No more cancer. No more sickness. No more pain. He was so proud to call you “Mom.” May you experience peace that only He can give and His loving presence in your hours of need. Great is Thy Faithfulness.
Mark I’ll never forget your kindness and how you always spoke so well to others even if they didn’t always deserve it. The way a room lit up with your smile and how so many enjoyed your company. Heaven must have needed someone really special because they chose you and God only chooses the best❤️
Mark and I were co-workers for many years and together we forged a path forward for our company, often bucking the norm to accomplish our shared goal.
Mark was a kind hearted man, truly caring for all that he supervised or worked with, helping them elevate their abilities and progress in their careers.
He will be sorely missed, a giant among men
Mark was such an important part of my life. I will be forever grateful for the mentorship, support, and friendship that he showed me during our time working together. Mark was a joy to be around and cared for those in his charge with a passion. I offer my sincerest condolences to his family and friends and I want them to know I am grieving with them but that I take comfort in knowing that Mark's spirit will live on. Kelly Caudle
My deepest sympathies and condolences to family and friends of Mark. I met Mark through a mutual friend and he was truly one of the best people anyone could ever meet. I looked forward to receiving a card each year from Mark at Christmas - his was one of the first received and cherished every year. I will hold the memories I have with Mark very close to my heart. He will be missed - such an incredible man!
Rosemary. My thoughts and prayers. My heart goes out to you
My deepest sympathies to the family of Mark. My husband and I met Mark 20 years ago through a mutual friend. Mark was so kind and even when our mutual friend moved out of state and we did not see each other for several years Mark ALWAYS made sure to send us a Christmas card checking in to see how we were and giving us an update on his life. Mark will be missed by Gary and I.
Dearest RoseMary - my heart breaks with the news of Mark’s passing. What a beautiful child and soul. Prayers are being said for you and I will be in touch to listen to you and your grief stories with only compassion and love. ❤️
Prayers for peace, for happy memories, for love and comfort in this time of loss. We are forever grateful for our Memorial Day BBQ with you this year. Mark, may you soar with your dear Sister and Dad up in heaven. RoseMary, we look forward to sharing a hug and a smile with you again soon. Love, Nick & Murilo
Rest in peace, Mark. Sympathies to your mother and to the rest of your family.
