Mark and I used to go have lunches together, and he always had a joke (some good....most not so much lol), but telling them always put a smile on his face. R.I.P. Mark.

I am so sorry to hear of Mark's passing. I worked with Mark at Payless Cashways. Together we ran the plumbing department and were known as the MD team. Mark was so thoughtful, kind and willing to help a friend.
