Nora, I will always remember Mark as a kind person with much integrity. I worked with Mark during my first job with Outagamie County Human Services and will always have fond memories of that time. May God bless you and your family.

I also have a sad heart today. Mark was one of those people who always had time for you. He was a man who never showed the stress and strife he had in having to make difficult decisions as the Director of Health and Human Services. I will miss his kind demeanor and happy face.

Nora, I'm thinking about you a lot today. Your sole mate is at peace and is not suffering. Take care of yourself. I miss working with you as well. We will have to get together soon. My hugs and love are being sent.

Jay, Deanna, and boys -- Know that he is home... Let your memories bring you smiles, laughter, and a few "warm fuzzies" every now and then keeping him always in your hearts. You have lost an angel on earth, but have gained a guardian angel who can be with you any where, any day, and any time. Feel God's arms around you as He assures you all is well...

I am truly saddened.....Mark was my supervisor, mentor, and friend. His integrity and compassion were always in the forefront of his decisions. I will join the many others in missing his presence in this world. My heart and sympathies go out to Nora and his family.

He always left you feeling better. So glad I got to know him even if it was just alittle bit. It went a long way.

Two words come into mind when thinking of Mark... "Class Act." A Soft spoken,kind gentleman with a great sense of humor, and generosity beyond compare. It was an honor to know him, and everyone who has met him would agree.
