Mark will be lovingly remembered for his kind and gentle spirit, integrity and love of laughter. He was an avid tennis fan who loved not only to play but also to inspire and coach younger players. Mark was a compassionate listener and advisor with a love of learning that never ceased.
As our family gathered to remember him we discovered Mark’s Mission Statement for his life, written in his own words:
To Honor God in everything I say or do.
To Love others in word and deed.
Sew the fruit of the spirit which is Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self Control.
Actively Love Merrie, Kyle and Katie.
Actively Love my family and friends.
Spend significant amounts of quality time with my family and friends.
Develop my skills to become a person that makes a lasting impact on those I teach.
Teach in the classroom, and out of the classroom.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in his honor are suggested to the Mattoon High School Tennis Activity Fund, 2521 Walnut Avenue, Mattoon, IL 61938.
