I will always remember Mark for being there for my when I had my accident at work on 7/6/98. He was the ONLY guy in the whole plant that was calm, cool and collected at that time. He made sure I was OK and stayed with me until Emergency Services took me away. He also looked in on me and my family as I recuperated. He always made me laugh and I knew I could count on him to look out for me as I was coming back from that day. Although I haven't seen him in quite some time, he comes up a lot when reminiscing about the good times we all used to have back in the day. That'll never change!

My condolences to the family. .
