Mark was a 1992 graduate of Holy Savior Menard Central High School. He led a very active life and had an eclectic array of jobs. He experienced life to the fullest, always helping anyone in need. Mark was known as a “go-to guy” for any odd job from landscaping, building bicycles, handyman, mechanic, to selling watermelons! He had a great sense of humor and loved to make others laugh. He had a big heart which made an impact on everyone he knew. Even with all the challenges he dealt with in his short life, he always took life in stride. He always referred to his “dad” Pat was his best friend. Mark will forever be missed by those who loved and knew him.
