Mark's infectious smile and laughter brought light to so many. From founding and growing his own successful business, he and Heidi purchased their dream home where they were able to share their love for nature and animals including caring for horses, dogs, chickens, and goats. Mark found peace among his family and the home he poured himself into. Few knew the pain he lived with as he worked to overcome professional and personal struggles over the past two years. Throughout all the tribulations Mark's kind spirit never wavered.
Words cannot express the sorrow we feel having lost such a beautiful soul. The place you held in this world will never be filled. You are greatly missed and forever in our hearts and minds. May you find peace and rest easy. We love and miss you dearly.
On behalf of the family, during this difficult time, we are humbly requesting, in lieu of flowers, that family and friends please donate to support Nick and Jake's college fund. Any amount you can give is greatly appreciated and will be put to assisting the boys' education. We cannot thank you enough for your kind words and support. We are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends. Thank you.
