Although not close, Mark and I were friends throughout our time at Custer. I don't recall but we probably met in Mr. Brye's Spanish class.  . Both of us perceived a call to ordained ministry.   Mark and I were both Episcopal and both intended to attend seminary at Nashotah House in Delafield.  Mark went a differant route and obtained a PhD. in Spanish. He had a real facility for languages.  It was a sad day when I learned that he had died.  Many years later (1996-2002) I served as the assistant at St. Alban's, Sussex.  Mark's father is a member of St. Alban's.  We spoke of Mark often.  Rest in peace my friend, a good and faithful servant..

I have never known a guy with a more positive personality, and a smile that covered more of his face -- plus he had a great laugh.  He also liked to play tricks on people -- we were partners in several.   But I also knew that if I needed something, Mark was the "go-to" guy.  Very smart, enthusiastic and fun -- but he was short. (I had to find one short-coming in the guy -- because otherwise he was the greatest.)  Fond memories live on!

What I remember most about Mark was he loved Spanish and was short. We went to school together from elementary school to high school. Through elementary and middle school we were the two smallest guys in our class. Finally I grew in high school and he didn’t. He loved Spanish so much that while we rode home on the bus together he spoke it to me to have somebody to practice on even though I did not understand it. He called me Guillermo, the closest he could come to William in Spanish. Fond memories of a great guy – rest in peace.
