Mark was a devoted husband, father and friend that touched many lives through his enthusiasm and love of life. Every job, school, team or organization that he was involved with became a part of him. He had a great ability to connect with people and shared his passion for life with everyone that he met. As a father of a daughter with Rett syndrome, Mark did everything he could to make her life better. It is in his honor that we gather his family and friends to celebrate a life well lead and to give to a cause that was close to Mark’s heart.
