  1. I remember Mark from Kendall School. He was in our multi-age class (k-1st) grade. He was a smart and very friendly boy. I was so sad to hear he passed away. He will be in my prayers.

  • What a wonderful young man Mark. It’s difficult to write this as my son Mike and Mark were very close friends in middle and early high school. Mark and Mike did a lot of paintball together and just had fun hanging out. Mike and I are very saddened to learn of Mark’s sudden passing. Our sincere condolences to Mark’s family. His star will shine brightly in the sky and he will be catching lots of big fish! Godspeed Mark!
