I was one of Marks companions while we served in Australia. I always found Mark to be kind and humorous. I have thought of him often in the years since and looked back on those times with a smile. Some of my fondest mission memories came while serving with Mark. My condolences to his family and his children.

Mark and I worked for Ron Cox Builders together back in the day. Some of my favorite memories are from that time working with him. He was always funny and fun to be around. He had such a quick wit and always had me laughing. And Mark was as loyal as they come. He will be missed! Condolences to all his family.
