I first met Mark when he was working for Kalamazoo Rubber Stamp. They supplied construction tools, nails for our guns and Mark did repairs on the guns and compressors. Later when Mark was looking for new challenges I hired him to work as a carpenter on our crews doing both framing and trim work. I found him to be an employee you could always count on. He was always eager to learn new things, a great problem solver that never turned down an opportunity to expand his knowledge. When he left and went into business for himself we still stayed on touch and he installed several vac systems in new homes we were building. Our customers always had positive things to say about his abilities and attention to details. We stayed in touch and had coffee together many times various locations around town and for the past few years at Mackenzie's on West Main. Our conversations could ramble on for long periods of time covering subjects from A-Z. He was a wonderful and kind person who I have enjoyed being part of my life. He will be missed.
