Blessed with many gifts, Mark was a musician, a gifted singer, a master of wood craft, a brilliant teacher, a star chef, a florist with flair and our handyman. He cared for the earth, loved the great outdoors, a good book and was always up to date on the news. He was a gentle soul, who could lift your spirits with a smile and a kind word. He was a courageous stroke survivor, the strongest man we’ve known. He was unfailingly there for his family who were the center of his universe and a willing hand to his friends when needed. His many kindnesses will never be forgotten by those who were touched by his caring and he will be missed by all who knew him. We are forever grateful and will always celebrate how much better we are for having known him. Blessed by his love, today and for always.
