  1. Crazy dude and we had some great times together back at MHS. Last time I saw him was when he was a DJ at KBGH. He dedicated a song by Leon Russell to me as I was driving out of town. Remembering it to this day. RIP pal!

  2. I worked with Mark way back in the day when we were wild and crazy kids playing radio on KBUY. He was funny, talented and a joy to work with – and always had a great smile. I am so very sorry to hear of his passing. My heartfelt condolences to Sondra and his family. Nancy Amburn ( Nancy Allen from radio days)

  3. Such great times with Mark walking to my house to shoot hoops, many times with lights on, as we continued well after dark. Also, what a fun summer at WTSU when Mark, Eddie, I were all there together. So many wonderful memories of a fun, funny, full of life, amazing friend. Now dazzle heaven with your signature megawatt smile!
    So many prayers for you, Sondra, and your family. May God be with you all.
