Mark was preceded in death by his father, Delroy George, two step - brothers, David and John.

Mark was born in St. Cloud, MN on December 14, 1955, and was confirmed at the Holy Cross Lutheran Church on May 3, 1970. Mark loved his family and was a remarkable husband, father, grandfather, son and brother. He married Sulinda on October 26, 1985 and in 1986 welcomed his daughter, Maegen, who was his pride and joy. His happiness grew with his family when he became a Grandpa to the beautiful Elizabeth, in October 2017.
He was passionate about fishing, camping, photography, travelling, and many other outdoor activities. He was an avid self-taught stock trader and enjoyed landscaping. In retirement he built a high quality stone wall, affectionately named, “The Great Wall of Mark.”
