Mark was a beloved son, brother, nephew, husband, father, musician, teacher, and performer. Coming
home from the final rehersal of “The Music Man” the musical at the high school in the district in which
he was music director and was directing the play, he was struck head on by a drunk driver, and died instantly—Less than a mile from his home where his wife and two little girls (8& 10 yrs old) were waiting for him. It’s almost 20 years since that crash and we still love him and miss him every day.
