I never met Mark. I live in Nashville TN and we became internet friend several years ago. I think back in the "MySpace" days. He was my political buddy and we agreed on much. He was my pun buddy and joined in on so many threads trying to out do the next pun. Our particular running favorite of course was "make me a sammich." If you kept in touch on FB with Mark, you know all about the sammiches!! He had friends online that he never met, several of them, and not just me. I will miss his humor and I will miss him. My heartfelt condolences to all those whom Mark was close with. Rest in peace my friend.

I think of you and I see your kind eyes and sweet smile. I'm sad to have you leave us but you have left us all with special memories. I can still picture you as a handsome little 4 yr old walking around our house with your little hands in your pockets & trying to whistle. So cute!

When I think of Mark I remember how his smile and big personality would light up the whole room! I remember you as a little boy coming to stay with us for a few weeks during the summer months. You were so cute with your curly hair and engaging smile and antics! I was so happy to see you again after so many years apart at our family reunion in Port Edwards! It was so good to see your bright smile again and to get to talk a little with you and Lori. You passed from this life too early my dear cousin!

His absence will not go unoticed. Randy and I looked forward to seeing Marks wit and humor on Facebook. Our calls were never without Randy and Mark sharing laughs over a memory from years ago.

His humor never failed to make me smile or laugh out loud. We shared a love of dogs and interests in politics, music and all things sarcastic.

Godspead- friend, cousin, brother, partner.

I worked with Mark at Mercury Marine. Although I did not work with him on a daily basis, nor did I know him that well, I could see that Mark was a good and kind person with patience for all. He told me when I first met him about his illness...he was positive about it...I remember thinking that he must have a lot of strength as a person to be so calm. I wish I could have known Mark better, but the time I had, I am thankful for. Rest in Peace condolences to your family.

Another star shines bright in the heavenly skies above. Mark I will miss seeing all of your clever and witty posts on fb. Always put a smile on my face when I saw them. I will miss seeing you trotting through plt. 95 to attend the weekly toolbox meetings. What an awesome person always bringing a smile to who ever you were conversing with. My deepest sympathy to Mark's family. You're free now! RIP Mark

I have been friends with Mark online for probably 10 years. We shared the same political views and his humor was always a bright spot in my day. I’m going to miss his presence in my life. My prayers and peace for his companion and family. I know you will miss him. He was one of the good guys.

Mark was part of our online group of political scallywags, a voice of reason and intelligence when needed and the source of great laughter always. It isn’t an understatement to say that he touched the lives of hundreds of us every week for the last few years. We are friends who gravitate towards being family in that online space and the fact that his passing so shocked us is testament to his courage. Mark never complained about the rough road he was on— he complained about the health care system, deservedly. But he never complained about his pain. He was wise, witty and a wonderful man whose absence will always be felt. May your journey forward bring you the peace you deserve, friend.

Even though Mark was going through his own health problems, he took time to comfort others going through their own health crisis. It was amazing to see someone care so much about his fellow coworkers.

Mark will be missed by everyone he came in contact with. Mark can now rest in Heaven's peace. Mark can also dance with his Godmother, who loved him so much. Our family will have great memories of Mark as a young child growing up with cousins. We will always love you Mark. Your memories will go on forever. You can rest now in the glories of Heaven until we meet again.
