The kind of person who would give the shirt off his own back if it helped another, Mark was never concerned with the idea of being owed anything back. He was also kind and always willing to lend an ear to anyone. Fully focused, Mark was always attentive to who was speaking to him and would always give share his thoughts in hopes of helping. His advice was always wise, loving, thoughtful and most importantly selfless.
