His career spanned many decades working at Buehner Company in Salt Lake and then retiring from Forterra in Caldwell after many years of service. Mark owned suits but he was most comfortable in his jeans and flannel shirts or t-shirts with a ball cap. He loved the outdoors and music. His father taught him to fish at an early age and they loved their outings together. He and his dad and daughter loved being on the water together. His guitar was always within close reach whether he was at home or in nature. He taught his daughter how to play. He loved nothing more than camping trips, hiking and fishing. He felt alive sitting in the sun, on the water and enjoying nature. His family and friends will always remember his songs and playing the guitar in his living room or around a campfire. He enjoyed the camaraderie of friends in Caldwell and the love of his dog who went everywhere with him. He loved visiting family both in Salt Lake City, Utah and beyond. He and his mother Kay enjoyed a trip to Louisiana where they experienced Mardi Gras, tours of the Atchafalaya Basin and the Tabasco Factory while visiting his sister and family. His home was splattered with notes of future plans for campouts and building things around his home. He was always learning new things, he had learned how to weld to repair his things as well as projects for friends. He often expressed that life was good.Funeral Home Bella Vida, Boise Idaho. A memorial will be held in Utah at a later date.
