Mark was a good guy.  I remember one afternoon after school at LJI, in front of the Episcopal Church, some nut case from the high school was jacked up on something and wanted to fight any and every 6th, 7th or 8th grader that walked by.  A pretty big crowd gathered around him, and everybody stood back, but Mark stood up to him and told him that what he was doing wasn't right.  So the guy knocked Mark around a bit.  (Seems like he beat up on somebody else, too.) 

In great schoolyard justice, Mark's brother/step-brother/cousin (I can't remember that or his name) later found the nut case and pounded him.

I was always impressed that Mark had the guts and sense of right to stand up to that guy.  I'm sad the hear that Mark has passed.

Peace to you, Mark.
