    We were fiends from 1st grade, Holy Spirit through Shanley High School. God bless you.

    My heart is heavy to hear of Mark’s passing. Mark & I became friends at Shanley and have had some contact over the years. We spent a lot of time together in high school and I have very fond memories of the good times we had. My deepest sympathy to Max and all of Mark’s friends and family. Hugs, love and prayers.

    Having a precious memory…
    1974 on a train from Paris to Rome. Sitting on the floor in the corridor by the conductor’s berth because there were no seats available. Comfortably leaning up against our well used backpacks. Drinking cheap red wine out of a huge jug and eating delicious bread & cheese sandwiches bought from a vendor in Paris. Jim and Mark singing Seals&Crofts “Hummingbird” with the most beautiful harmonies.
    RIP Mark 😢 April 8 1954 – April 5 2021

    Mark was a fantastic vocalist. We played and recorded together during his time with “The Salt Creek Band”. His rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”was stellar. Rest in Pease over that rainbow Mark. Dave and Barb Hutcheson

    I was several years ahead of Mark at Shanley. Whenever I saw him he was always eager for a short visit. He was a kind and talented man. I recall his solo version of ‘Desperado’ as he played the guitar. It was well done. I will miss the short visits. Until we meet again Mark. Rest in peace.
