During our weekend ventures, into God's wilderness, Mark, I, and several other friends would go dirt bike riding. We would ride all day and sit around the campfire, under the stars, solve the world's problems, discuss religion, politics, and any other subject that would snap and fly from the campfire. We learned more about the Mormon faith, from Mark, than all of us could muster about the Christian faith during those conversations....and believe me we tried. As I type this, I can see the Mormon Bible Mark gave me back in the early 80s, sitting on the shelf, just over my left shoulder. I received it from Mark during one of those weekend theology classes, out in the California desert. I will miss him and always remember him as a GREAT friend, trusted colleage, and a family man to be emulated. May God's grace bring peace to his family and frineds during this troubling time. Respectfully, Jim Eden. Sept 22, 2012.

Pam,I just learned about this. I am so sorry for your loss, but I know without a doubt that you and Mark will be reunited and your love for one another will never dim. I love you Pam. I have such incredibly fond memories of my time on the farm with you and your family working and playing on the farm in Harrisville and in Idaho. I will be in touch, but wanted to send this to let you know my thoughts and prayers are with you.Kyle

Well to Pam and Family, it's a difficult time when we loose someone we love so sudden, but your right Pam at least he did'nt suffer. My prayer's and thought's are with your family both sides. I'm very sorry for the loss but i have alot of fun memories from the time you meant Mark to him coming over to my Mom's and helping out here and there. Also alot of us know how intelligente Mark was but he also had a heart of gold. I'll never forget what he said to me in a very shakey but soft and tender voice the day i burried my Son. We all know he is among alot of wonderful people at this moment, but we will sure miss him, his stories and his smile. He was a wonderful Man, Father,Grandfather and Brother. the list goes on. Sincerly,and with all our love, Teddy and Debbie

Pam - My heart goes out to you, the boys and the grandkids. Mark was a great guy who would help anyone that was interested in learning his many talents. Be it work or hobby he excelled to the top, but he didn’t stop at the top, he was eager to teach his talents to those who wanted to learn what he had to offer. He could run a triax, do a 4 point roll, find the rod and reel at the bottom of Bear Lake, shoot whatever cowboy stage was set and write the manual for boom operators. He was a true friend, great instructor and a very nice guy. Things just will not be the same without him.

Mark was a religous man and well liked here at udot. I knew him from when he started and moved to several different jobs. He would always say hello to all he passed in the hallways. I liked talking to him about RC flying as I am a member of the Ute R C club here in salt lake. mark is a great man and will be sorely missed by all. Sorry for your loss. Del.

He always had a smile and friendly greeting for me every time i showed up and i feel very fortunate for the time i spent with him. Thank you so very much for your friendship we will miss you.

I'm sad to see Mark leave us. Mark, and I were Friday flying buddies at the NURCAC site. Mark was always a gentleman, and a friend. I hope time will ease the pain of you're loss. Mark will always be remembered for his warm smile, and his friendliness. He was a true Gentleman that we all respected very much.

Mark, I'm going to miss you so much! I've worked by your side for the past 17 years and you never let me down. You were a dream employee for a boss. I'm not sure how I'm going to manage without you. You were the epitome of excellence in everything you did, whether it was your job or one of your many hobbies. I always felt like you had my back. My prayers are with Pam, the boys and the grand-kids. You are going to be missed so much by everyone who was lucky enough to get to know you. To know you was to love you! Save a place for me on the other side. We still have a lot to talk about!

Pam although I haven't met you, I want you to know that as kids Mark spent time with us and my one memory of him was his SMILE! I know he's with family and I hope you fine peace.

What i met mark it was during a scuba training event at bear lake, I remember how precise he was in his diving skills. He was always so aware of others I was very impressed. We went thru dive instructor school together, it was nice to have someone like him to study with and practice skills together. I literally trusted Mark with my life and never felt he would let me down. I will mis his infectious laugh and his child like curiosity. Thanks for being there Mark, and thanks Pam for sharing him with me.Randy
