Mark was born june 6, 1988 in Leesville, Louisiana was the younger of 3 boys and one 1 girl. Mark had incredible heart growing up, he had an early fight with cancer when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor in the 3rd grade, after many years of St.Jude Visits and ChemoTherapy, the cancer went into remission and was able to graduate highschool in 2006! After a year of college he moved out to Indiana with our mom for the majority of his adult life who assisted him with most of his hospital and medical implications
Mark would often greet you, smiling at every turn, he made fast friends with people and was there as the first thing you wake up to, with good morning or what ya doing messages, always engaging, always involving, he made it his mission to connect not only with family and friends but just about anyone he could talk to, he dealt with many hospital visits and doctors appointment with such positivity and courage that i didnt have made you believe he wasn't even sick though you can see it on him, mark was experiencing early stages of Congestive Heart Failure and was found with fluid leaking into his lungs in 08 and then again in 2016 and dealt with it like a champ, after our mom passed away last year and with him dealing with seizures, on top of everything else, decided Arizona was the best move and to be reunited was all we could ask for after losing our mom
Mark received surgery in June and though told successful ultimately didn't take and thus his body giving out before his spirit ever did , he will always be remembered loved and missed but most importantly the fire that will light our dark and carry us through to the morning light.
He is survived by his Brothers Raymond, Najee, and sister Cassandra, Nieces Essences and Isabella and Nephew Raymond Jr. Before passing mark was involved in band for 6years where he learn to play clarinet and trumpet, part of the Lions Club summer camps, a loving uncle, brother, friend
