For some reason I Googled Mark’s name today and learned of this. I am so sad. He was a great guy and a good friend with whom I have been out of touch. We worked together on several projects and he even moved out to Boulder for a while. He will be missed. My condolences, Davis Templeton
Mark and I were friends during our years at IUP. We met in Kittanning and were housemates in Indiana. We’d not been in touch much for many years, but I spoke with him a few months ago. I’m so sorry for your loss.
While I had not stayed in direct contact with Mark, I kept up with him through friends. I am so saddened to learn he is gone. Such a man of God…he will be missed.
