Mark Schwenning

December 5, 1958 — October 3, 2021

Mark J. Schwenning, age 62, of Hilliard, Ohio passed away Sun Oct 3, 2021, at Kobacker House. Mark was born on Dec 5, 1958, in Perrysburg Ohio, and was raised in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. He is preceded in death by his father Richard Schwenning. Surviving family members include his devoted wife Gay Schwenning, mother Evelyn, and step-father Harry Phipps, daughter Melissa (Shawn “Norm”) Thomas and their children Jensyn, Jackson, Jostyn, Zandria, and Harley of Bucyrus, Ohio son Joshua Schwenning of Upper Sandusky, Ohio, step-son Sean (Holly) Strane and their children Madison and Sullivan of Hilliard, Ohio step-daughter Megan Lancione and her children Jorja Rehm and Jack Rehm of Hilliard, Ohio, step-son Michael Strane of Hilliard, Ohio,  brothers David (Jean) Schwenning of Bucyrus, Ohio, Donald (Valerie) Schwenning of Upper Sandusky, Ohio, Thomas (Nataliya) Schwenning of Crestline, Ohio, Timothy (Ronda) Schwenning of Palmetto, Georgia, and Matthew (Mary Anne) Schwenning of Carey, Ohio, as well as many nieces, nephews, and family friends.

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.
