Tammy, AJ, Heather, Cheryl and Family, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Mark was a wonderful man who was always smiling. I'm certain he is resting peacefully now.

AJ, Tammy, & Heather, I don't know where to start. Mark was an amazing person. I consider mark as my Uncle, he has always been there for the family even when things got hectic he would always come through. He always made smart comments, made you laugh when you were down and could turn the worst things possible into a joke and make you feel better about yourself. I will miss all the little things such as the sweet smell of his black & milds, or listening to Rush while he would act like his steering wheel was a drum set and just have the time of his life on it lol :). Even tho mark is not here with us physically he will always be in our hearts and walking along side of each and everyone of us. God blessed us with a gift (mark) and I couldn't be more happier knowing that the "gift" was part of our family. We will love and miss you mark, thank you for all the lessons you have shown us and thank you for being the kind hearted and loving man you were.

Tammy, Heather And A.J. I am so sorry for the loss of Mark. He was a great man and always fun to be around. I loved how he would always sing Barry Manilow songs he would have me cracking up. God works in mysterious ways, and even though it may seem hard to understand now...Mark is in a very great place and no longer in any pain. I know the past year has been very hard for all of you, and i just hope you guys can get some rest and think of the great times Mark has blessed you with. You all are in my prayers and i hope you all find peace in your hearts. I know it is very hard but you all need to look after one another and love each other because as you see life is too short, so cherish the people you still have while you can. I love you all very much and i hope you all climb over this obsticle and know that Mark is no longer suffering or hurting. RIP MARK we all love you!

Brittany Morin

As previous General Manager of AkzoNobel "Sikkens Wood Finishes", I want to personally express our deepest condolences to Tammi, A.J., Heather and Mark's entire family. We at AkzoNobel were privileged to have Mark as an employee. Mark's professionalism, character, and ambition for success led to Mark being promoted from an internal position to one of our external Technical Sales Representatives during his near seven year tenure with us. In this role, Mark's focus on relationships and his ability to solve problems enabled him to become one of our most valuable employees and one of our customers most trusted resources for help and knowledge. Mark will truly be missed by all of us at AkzoNobel and certainly will never be forgotten. We have all been blessed to have had Mark in our lives. With appreciation but much sadness, Gerry Koutavas

Daddy, I cant seem to say what i really want to say. I love you always. You will be with me everywhere I go. There's just so many things that seem so impossible without you. I will miss you walking me down the aisle, holding your grand babies, giving me the best advice (even when i thought you were wrong at the time hehe). Ill miss the smell of your Black & Milds, your air band performances, your sarcasm. I will miss every Holiday that you cant attend. I will wear a part of you near my heart always. I love you daddy and i will miss you always.

Heather (Your Daughter)

Dear Tammy, A.J, Heather, Cheryl, and Mrs. Uranis. Words can never say how sorry I am for your loss. We have truly lost a great Man. I have so many great memories of Mark. There are so many things that always will remind me of him, whether its Family, fishing, Rush, The Rockets, Three wheeling Shooting, or the Homemade fried chicken dinner (which he still owes me!!) The good ole days at the apartments in Wixom, wizards arcade, Canadian bar trips, I can go on and on. I will truely miss him, and surely will neverforget him. I have lost a GREAT friend, but then I have been fortunate for so many years. Thanks Mark!!!!


There are never words that can be said during a rough time as this. Just know that you are loved and will always be. Through thick and thin, I am here for you!

Sam Mc Ewen

I am so sorry Tammy, Linda, Cheryl, and kids. Tammy I rememeber the last time I saw you & Mark and how happy of a reunion it was. I was so happy for both of you and then I heard about the cancer from my mom and now this. What a shock and I am so sorry for all of you esp. the kids. God bless you all-Peggy

Peggy Armstrong (Boyle)

To the best man that's ever happened to me: I miss you already! I really wish you could be here but i know God has better plans for you up in Heaven. You will be with the people you love(your grandma, your father, bill becker). You will never leave my thoughts. You will always be in my heart. I Love You Always!


I'm really going to miss you dad. Thank you for everything you've done for me. I love you and always will. I'm going to do everything I can to take care of mom and sis. I hope to continue to make you proud. I know you will be watching down over me. I wont ever forget you. Don't be a stranger. I love you dad. You will always be in my heart. *Hold your fire. Keep it burning bright. Hold your flame til the dream ignites. A spirit with a vision is a dream...With a mission-Rush*


God looked around his garden and he found an empty place. He then looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn't go alone. For part of us went with you the day GOD took you home. R.I.P. my baby brother...........


Tammy,He giveth more Grace when the Burdens grow greater,He sendeth more Strength when the Labors increase; To added affliction He addeth His Mercy, To multiplied trails, His multiplied Peace. Gods grace is immeasurable,His mercy is inexhaustible,His peace is inexpressible. I Love You All....

Tammy, Heather, AJ and Cheryl, We are sorry to hear about your loss. Mark was such a special person in our lives. He brought much joy to the family. We will miss him very much. With all our love, RIP Mark.

Dear Tammy, I've only met you a few times by chance running into you & Mark but I always considered Mark as a good friend. I am so sadden to hear of his passing. We were room mates for a short while and I worked at WZARDS Arcade too. Hung out in Canada all the time, then headed to Bates Burgers before we went home. It was Mark who turned me onto RUSH and made me a fan ever since. All these years every time I hear RUSH I would always see Mark playing the "Air" Drums along with Neal Pert. Great memories. Love his Burgundy Monte Carlo. Mark was a great guy and he will be missed. I am so, so sorry for your loss. May God bless you in this difficult time.

Jeff Boike

Tammy & family, I'm so very sorry for your loss. Mark was one of the most loving, caring people I've ever known. He was loved by all who knew him and will be very sadly missed!!
