I've known Mark since elementary school, he was truly a great person, very likeable, kind hearted, and a political sparring partner. Mark you will be missed. My condolences go out to his family, especially his children and Liz. RIP my old friend.

To the family, it is with the deepest sympathy I share in the lost of Mark. We were EHS 1980 classmates from middle to high school in Eustis. We even seen each other in Tallahassee a few times when our kids played soccer with the recreation league. Lewis Thurston
