Mark was born a ramblin’ man and wherever he laid his hat was his home. He rambled all over this country for work and fun. He had seen and done things most of us only dream about. One of his big moments was driving an actual NASCAR race car at the KC speedway. No matter where his travels lead him he always returned to his beloved hometown of Eureka Springs, his family and many friends.
Mark was well known for his very unique laugh and the infamous train whistle. Both of which could be heard at any given moment as he paddled up and down the Kings river, his favorite place on earth! He had a love for all animals, but especially dogs.
