Mark graduated from Ben L. Smith High School and was a veteran of the USAF. He worked at the Columbia Airport before he had to retire on disability. He had a deep respect and love for airplanes. He also loved to read, horses, and spending time at the beach. He had a beautiful voice and as a young man, he sang with a local quartet in Greensboro.

Mark, you are missed terribly, but it makes it easier to know you’re with God and your voice has joined the Heavenly Choir.
