|Let the memory of mark be with us forever|
"Mark and I worked together from about 5-8 years ago. After we stopped working together we'd still occasionally hang out and go to shows.
We went to the Doobie Brothers at Last Fling and Mark talked about how that was one of the first bands he had seen back in the 70's. We saw Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt together. We'd also seen the Jayhawks and gone to the Tivoli to see the Freddy Jones Band. Mark had a wonderful enthusiasm and appreciation for music.
He went on a trip with me to Notre Dame to see my beloved Gonzaga Bulldogs play basketball.
He always had happy stories of growing up in Downers Grove and his parent's candy shop. He also shared warm memories of his friends from SIU.
We'd talk on the phone every couple of months, and he always asked about my wife and my daughters. He was a caring, kind person.
Thought of Mark today because I was thinking of going to Johnson's Door County Fish restaurant in Lombard. Mark always loved going there for the perch. I knew that he had moved down to Southern Illinois and began to wonder how he was doing. An internet search brought me to here.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Mark's family. Rest in peace my friend."
"Watched "The Song Remains the Same" over the past weekend. As always you were in our thoughts. Happy Birthday to Mark"
"Happy Birthday Mark, we miss you!"
"Our friendship goes back to high school, through collage, adulthood, to the present. We spent many great times together over the years, including Led Zeppelin in 1977, many concerts, barn parties, SIU, Chicago Blues... You were always a close friend, and will be missed deeply."
"Marky, Love You and Miss You."
"rest in peace, my dear brother"
Have a suggestion for us?
