  • How long have you known Mark?almost 25 years!
  • Three words to describe Mark: passionate, smart, energetic
  • If Mark created a nickname for you, what is it and where did it come from?

    I think there may have been a few over the years, all from YL trips and events. Not sure he created it, but "stick boy" and later "stick" seemed to "stick" with him the most.

  • Funny memory with Mark:

    I'll never forget van trips with Mark at the wheel, barely paying attention to the road (before cell phones! the man loves a good story and tells it mostly with his hands!).. The most memorable had to be the trip back from a camp visit in Indiana where a divided highway merged and we were on the wrong side of the road and we were shouting "DOUBLE YELLOW LINES, DOUBLE YELLOW LINES" but he was mid story and didn't catch on until the last second as a truck was fast approaching!

  • How has Mark impacted your life?

    Much more than he probably knows. He has been a constant encouragement and an example of integrity and courage. He was a dear friend and mentor in Toledo and CT.

  • What do you think Mark’s legacy will be? What is his lasting imprint on the world?

    Many, many, many transformed lives due to his love for Jesus and willingness to be generous will all that God has given him. He led many to Jesus and many others have benefited from his example and faith. Mark's steady dependability and depth of friendship has brought calm to many people's storms over the years, including mine. He also brings laughter to any situation (appropriate or not ;-)).

  • Anything else you’d like to say to wish Mark Happy 50th Birthday!

    Love you brother! Miss you tons! Blessings to you on this milestone. You have been faithful and I know the Father is pleased with you!
