DeDe EcklWhat a shock to hear of Mark's passing. I worked with Mark for many years at EDS/HP. When I started at EDS I would have to wake Mark up in the middle of the night if the jobs he was responsible for didn't run correctly. He always had a great sense of humor and was always patient with the Computer Operators while we were learning our job. Mark was such a pleasant person to work with. He will be sorely missed.
Steve ShipleyI'm so shocked and saddened by the news of the loss of such a wonderful man. I worked with Mark for many years at EDS, and always looked forward to seeing Mark's smiling face; he managed to brighten everyone's day.
Faith ClarkI want to extend my heartfelt sympathies to all of Mark’s family. I worked with Mark for many years, over multiple projects for HP/EDS. He always conveyed his love and caring for his family and loved sharing funny stories. In many ways I feel I have known you all for a long time. Mark kept pictures at his desk of his family and was proud to talk about them with anyone who asked. He shared stories about his bowling team and the many trips and tournaments shared. You guys meant the world to him and I know he would be missing you as much as I’m sure you are missing him, if the tables were turned. As an active member of our Inventory team at HP, he is sorely missed by all and leaves a hole in all our hearts. I personally had the pleasure of sharing a ride to Toronto with Mark during one of our inventory efforts. He always saw the positive side even when circumstances were bleak. He worked tirelessly to get the job done, sacrificing sleep for the greater good. Mark was a trusted team mate, a conscientious worker, a great cook, a loving father, and a true and loyal friend. I will miss his infectious smile and his bright outlook. It was a pleasure to have known him and worked with him. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers.
Greg and Courtney CarterMy thoughts and prayers go out to Mark's family and friends. I worked with him for several years at HP and always enjoyed his stories about his family and his life up there. He will be missed greatly.
Travis WeaverI worked with Mark for 3 years at EDS/HP and he will certainly be missed. He was always good to talk to about hockey or to deliver a corny joke. Mark was just an all-around good guy, and somebody impossible not to like.
I know Mark is in a better place, and I hope he knows how much the people left behind will continue to miss him.
Derek RomanI first met Mark 4 years ago as we were both board members out at Lockport Little League.He always had a smile and always in an upbeat mood.He was always willing to help out and did a great job coaching the kids.He was a great guy and will be missed by all. RIP Mark
Don TiremanGallop free now amongst those Mustangs who've departed from our mighty herd that thundered out of the hallowed halls of Medina High School on the warm, humid Sunday that was June 22, 1975 to our individual and collective destinies. For those who remain here a little longer, we will remember you with admiration and sorrow until we all meet again one blessed day...Rest in peace, my friend...for MHS '75 still rules till the day we die!
Christopher QualianaMark was like a father to me, he once told me "everything in life isn't always going happen the way you would have liked, but it will always turn out the way it is supposed to", this above all has stayed with me through my life. He was a positive role model in his work with young children, teaching not only his values but a solid understanding of sportsmanship and fairness. He was a dedicated and humorous father not only to me but many kids in WNY rest in peace Mark and may you always be remembered for your smile and wonderful contributions to us all.

MarianAfter a death it can be very difficult to find the right words to say, but always remember in the bible there are situations similar to yours that can be a source of encouragement to you. (Jehovah is near to all those calling upon him) Ps, 145: 18.
(O Hearer of prayer, even to you people of all flesh will come). --Ps. 65:2.
