I had the honor of meeting and caring for Father Mark long after we had both left Kaukauna but recognizing we had so many common friends and acquaintances made us quick friends. His presence suggested he was caring for me not me for him. An amazing man with a profound influence. God bless him and his family

Dear Uncle Mark, I have attempted to model my life after you. I want to be just like you. You are a wonderful person and I have known it since I was just a young boy. I always admired you and looked up to you. You are surely going to be greeted by God with open arms into the kingdom of heaven. No one I know is a better man than you. I love you so much and I wish I could be there for you right now. Kaylah and I will always have you in our thoughts and prayers and I know you will be looking out for us up in heaven. I will always have you in my heart like I always have. I will continue to model my life after you and I will cherish the memories I have of you. I love you Uncle Mark and I know you love me. Say hi to my grandpa for me and please check up on me from time to time. I will dedicate my life to making you proud and remember no one is a better man than you. I will hold close the letters you wrote me and read them often. I love you Uncle Mark. I will see you when I get there. I love you very much. Love Always, Adam and Kaylah.

Jerry and Adele left a message on July 15, 2017:
Farewell Peace , my heart . Let the time for parting be sweet . Let it not be a death , but completeness . Let love melt into memory And pain into song . Let the flight through the sky end In the folding of the wings over the nest . Let the last touch of your hands Be gentle like the flower of the night . Stand still , oh beautiful end , for a moment And say your last words in silence . I bow to you and hold up my lamp To light you on your way . - Rabindranath Tagore

Dear Father Mark: to say you will be missed does not even touch it! Mike enjoyed growing up with you at St Josphs and then the years of getting to reunite with you at Bughs lake. You were a true friend and inspiration and we are all better for your presence. Meeting Pat and getting to know her was a compliment to you. God bless you and know you will be missed and mentioned often. Deepest sympathy.
Kate and Jim Drmolka left a message on July 15, 2017:
Mgr. Mark was a favorite when he served us at St. Paul's in Plainfield. I will never forget when we went to Good Friday service in Fort Myer 2 years ago and he surprised us by coming behind us and saying what are Plainfield, WI. parishioners doing here.? Please pray for us. "Give it some thought. " . Love him forever.
Jack and Mary Stephani left a message on July 15, 2017:
Jack and I are sad to hear of Father Marks passing. We got to know him and Pat and listen to his sermons while spending winters in Florida. The breakfasts after mass with the Clintonville group in North Fort Myers are very special memories for us. A wonderful man. So glad that we got to spend time with him. Prayers to the Schommer family.
Benjamin & Weston Kain left a message on July 14, 2017:
My Great Uncle Mark was the kindest man I've ever met. Some of my fondest memories as a child include sitting on his lap and listening to his stories about the Packers. I'm grateful that Mark was able to meet his great, great Nephew, my son, Weston, before he passed. I will miss him dearly, and so will the rest of the family. RIP Uncle Mark.
