Lori & girls, I am so sorry to hear about Mark's passing. While it is very sad, I can't help but to remember the great runs he & I had over the Sundstrand lunch hour "back in the day" & it makes me smile. I know it is hard to loose those so close to us & I pray that you will find comfort in the many memories your family has of Mark. I will pray for your family that the many joyous memories of Mark helps to provide some peace & comfort during this difficult time. Missing Mark ... Gary

I’m very sorry for your loss. I only knew Mark a short time, since he rejoined Primex last year. What struck me at first is how respectful and polite he was. It made me take note of my own behavior at times, and how I could do better. He and I shared an interest in Architecture, and we compared notes on our careers. For some reason I concluded he was several years younger than me (perhaps his approach to life), and it was only upon his passing that I realized we were contemporaries, having grown up just an hour away from each other our entire lives, maybe even crossing paths at some point without knowing it. The loss of his insight, humor, and wit has already been felt here at work. “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal ~ headstone in Ireland”.

Mark was an inspiration for his dedication, love and warmth to his family. I fondly remember him being in love with his wife when I would see them dancing at charity Alzheimer events. There was a genuineness he exhibited which was an inspiration on how other should enjoy life and openly share their lives.
