Mark was a plumber for local 50 and most recently was an operator for D-K Enterprises Landfill. He served our country in the US Army during the Vietnam War. One of his proudest moments was taking the last “Honor Flight” out of Toledo to visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, DC. He enjoyed hunting and was the king of goofy one liners.
