Mark was not only a coworker but also a true friend. He did so many great things at MCLB Albany. I will forever be greatful for what Mark did but mostly for the wonderful person he was. I will miss you my brother. Heaven has received an earthly treasure!

So sorry to hear of Marks passing. I have known Mark and his family many years. We were neighbors and great friends and worked with him at Ft Drum, NY in the 1980's and visited him when he transferred to Ft Gordan Ga. Rest in peace Doug Thomas Ft Lauderdale Fl
