Mark graduated from Upper Sandusky High School, and became a journeyman mold maker, certified by the State of Ohio, and was a credit to his profession. Mark and Gay were married in Columbus on April 20, 2002, and spent many happy years together, traveling, buying a new home, and spending time with the family. As everyone knows, Mark was a huge football fan, and loved the Buckeyes and the Browns, which he instilled in Melissa and Josh as they were growing up. Mark was a long-time member of St. Timothy Church. And throughout his many years of medical issues, Mark never lost his sense of humor or his smile.
