Mark made all who knew him feel loved and important. He always had a kind word to say and constantly looked for the best in everyone. He met his sweetheart, Robbi Tree, while attending Brigham Young University.

Together they celebrated 35 amazing years together.

He spent over 30 years working as a mechanical engineer, primarily in Utah and Colorado. Mark was dedicated to his faith and served faithfully in numerous church assignments.
