Mark recently started playing Frisbee golf which he loved. He got out there and played as much as he could whether it was sunny or snowing. He also loved to fish and drive his boat out on the water. Mark was that person who would do anything and everything for anyone in need. He could create, fix, or restore anything. He loved to BBQ and could make a mean pork butt out on the smoker, often drawing many neighbors by to let us know how amazing it smelled. Most of all, he loved his family and friends. Family always came first to Mark. The love he showed us all will be so very missed. He leaves behind the gift of sight.
