I knew Mark from our days working on the railroad. We became acquainted when forced to move to Alliance Nebraska. We were friends from then on. We were work partners paired up to work on locomotives. Mark was 1 of the most intelligent machinists I knew. An expert on rebuilding locomotive mechanical systems. As a person he loved life, in some ways, too much. He was thoughtful, kind, funny, loved the outdoors, fishing, hunting, boating, good food, sports, and Oldsmobile Cutlass. He loved his family. Always talked about his mother, dad, brothers and sisters, with a respect and admiration. I respected him for that. That in itself told me where Mark came from. He loved his wife, he loved his children. He spoke of pride and deep concern about the quality of character his kids were showing . Loving them so much that he found it hard to find ways of letting them know. He didn't talk describing his feelings. He was in thought. You could se it on his face. Contemplating right wrong or indifferent. I know his life was troubled. He found what he thought was easier ways. He struggled as a result and it could develop into more personal hardships than he wanted. It was a side that has contributed more than any of us wanted for him. I will miss my friend until we meet again. I believe through our heavenly father and his unconditional love. Mark now has a place for peace and harmony.
