So sorry for everyones loss. Still in disbelief that he passed away. Mark was always a really happy guy growing up. I remember when I stayed with linda and Steve awhile, he would always ask me if I wanted him to cook meals. Even back then he liked to cook. My love & prayers to everyone.

my dearest friend Marky,
We will always think of you everyday for the rest of our lives. I will never forget the good times that we've had, nor will we forget when Hoppy's leg got broke. We will never forget the moments that I am honored and privilaged to share with you. You will always be in our minds and our hearts, everyday to come. We will always love you! I miss you very much. Love, Shorty!
I am so sorry to hear the passing of Mark. I knew him for a short time period through Hoppy but I always had a blast when we hung around him and he always knew how to make people smile. He will be missed but never forgotten.

Aunt Linda, Angel and families, words can not express the sorrow and saddness I feel. I am sorry to have missed the last 20 years (since moving to PA) but I will always remember all the memories of us hang out and will never forget what a great cousin Marky was.
Marky please say HI to your dad and my dad and the rest of our family who are in Heaven with you.

My heart goes out to Angel and to Mark's family. Mark and I had so much fun at Village Inn! We worked the same schedule together for almost 5 years. The late closes during the week and the early, too early, Sunday mornings. Mark and my husband (Nick) also hung out alot, and always said that they were bro's. My husband sends his condolences and wishes that he could be here to pay his respects. (he is deployed on his 2nd overseas tour). If there is anything we can do to help please let me know. (269-5547) Mark was such a funny, sweet, and caring guy and he will be missed greatly! God be with you in helping you through this unimaginable loss.
love, Lynn and Nick Uzelac

To Mark's family and to the love of his life Angel, I am deeply sorry from the bottom of my heart for the large loss in your life. Words can not take away the pain that you are feeling. There is no way to get over the loss of Mark. Mark was a loving, kind man, a man that would do anything for anyone. Mark and I crossed pathes a few times in life and everytime we met he was the kindest person anyone would want to meet. Mark will live on in all the wonderful thoughts and memories of his family and friends. My prayers are with you at this horrible time in your lives.
-- Amber Grant
To the Family of Mark. I worked with him for over 7 years. He was a fun loving sweet hart. I and everyone else at VI will mess him deeply. Linda you raised a fine son.
