"Mark and I met in 1969 at Red's Ball club off Witte Rd in shooting pool !! which we both enjoyed the game.  We played and practied together until we achieved a solid status to start playing downtown at the LeCue.  He was a great guy and good long time friend he will be truly missed."

"Mark I wanted to add this; that one year when I was too sick to go out for thanksgiving that you dropped your plans and spent the day with me-"and we had fun!" That was one one thanksgiving to remember,and you didn;t get to "embarass" me once more by telling the now famous "name on the piano " story ...we love and miss you so much-happy thanksgiving."

"Mark...You were more than a boss to me. You were a mentor, a father-figure and most of all, a friend. I loved your sense of humour...esp the Texas euphemisms. Your knowledge of science, quantum physics, cb radios, fishing, much stored in that head of yours. It was something to be admired! Your compassion and caring always touched me and I'm grateful for knowing you. I love you."

"The year was 1957 Mark was 5 and I was 7. The school bus had just droped Mark off I said "hey kid you want to play", Mark " I have to go home and ask my Mom". 10 min. later we were best friends for life. Not a month has gone by in the past 55 yrs. that we did not see or talk to one anouther. We had a strong bond and Loved each other as Brothers. I know you are with the Lord. Miss U David"

"I met Mark maybe 1 year ago through the CB radio.  A bunch of us would get together at Melba's Cafe on Saturday mornings and talk about radio stuff.  He was always so funny and a real joy to be around.  I have a picture of him dancing in the parking lot at one of our CB radio breakfast get togethers not long after his knee surgery.  What a goof ball.  We miss Doc Holiday."
