His next move was to Wichita, KS, working various jobs until he joined the Hein Lawn Service where he worked for over 30 years until his health failed. Mark always enjoyed hunting and shooting with friends and traveling to enjoy the beautiful country and mountains. He enjoyed learning about anything from automobiles to marble, tools and bladesmithing. He loved the Lord and was a member of the Evangelical Friends Church from childhood. He sang in the choir in college and loved the old hymns which he could sing from memory. He enjoyed life and had much he still wanted to experience.

I had the distinct pleasure of knowing Mark for a very short time. We worked together and did many jobs together. I was taken immediately by his character and kind heart. We became instant friends. He and I traded stories and shared our hobbies with one another daily. He and I just clicked. He had a kind patience about him that I admired greatly. I am thankful that he is with our Lord now but will so greatly miss this wonderful man that I had the honor of calling my friend. My most heart felt sympathy goes out to his family in this time of loss. May Mark and all the souls of the faithfully departed through the power of God Rest In Peace!!
