To the family of Mark. Words cannot express the grief you are going thru right now. My wife Angie and I met Mark who helped us find our new home in Centerville. We met with Mark a few times and he had taken us thru our first walk thru of our new home. Such a hardworking and genuine guy. We are so shocked and saddened by his untimely passing. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of you during

I am very sorry to read of the loss of Mark. I was a teacher of one of his children.

Mark will never be forgotten. I know I'll always look over at the house expecting to see that grin on his face and waiting for a comment what ever it might be. I won't see him now but I know he will be there. See you again someday.

I remember Mark and 2 of his buddies bought me as "a slave" in slave auction during Freshman Initiation of my high school career in Seymour.

It is still unbelievable that Mark is gone. He will be truly missed - I was so looking forward to having Mark as my President of the South East Regional Board of REALTOR in a couple of years. Mark really cared about our industry, he only wanted the best for our profession and the same for the buyers and sellers. I will always think of Mark as one of the good guys in a white hat on my team. May

I was so shocked and saddened upon hearing of Mark's passing. I only knew him for a short time as a fellow member of the Southeast Iowa Regional Board of Realtors. Mark was such a great guy and so easy to work with. He will be sorely missed by everyone in our regional board.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family and close friends.
