Condolences

Condolence From: Steven R Schrier
Condolence: Saddened to recently learn about the passing of Mark. I knew Mark for many years while he dutifully attended to the needs of his Mother, Lois, and would regularly talk with him at Second Reformed Church following the morning service. Like his parents Mark was gracious, had a very kind, accessible disposition and was considerate during our conversations. He would occasionally talk about his life growing up around Los Altos and San Jose, California. I would occasionally see Mark with his engineering friends touring the Gilmore Car Museum shows in Hickory Corners. He was also a regular guest at the Gilmore Museum's winter season Sunday afternoon automotive history lectures. Mark especially enjoyed working with Volvo automobiles. Last summer (2017) he described his current major engineering project of installing a central vacuum cleaning system in a large new mansion currently under construction on the north shore of Gull Lake. Very saddened to learn that Mark had passed away suddenly at his home in Schoolcraft in early December 2017. My thoughts and prayers to his surviving family members in Kalamazoo, San Jose and the west coast.

Condolence From: Jerry and Mary Zwart
Condolence: We met Mark 28 years ago when we chose him to install a central vacuum system in our home. We were attracted to him for his knowledge, expertise and kind and caring ways. Over the years we have enjoyed our contact with Mark in the community and seeing him in church with his mother. We always admired Mark for his sweet kindness and helpfulness, and his depth of character. His presence in our community and our lives will be sadly missed.

We send our condolences to Becky, Julie and Tom and their families.

Condolence: I met Mark through Moonique raw dairy milk deliveries at the People's Church on Monday evenings. He was a blessing in my life. He helped me with my car a number of times. Bless his heart he would come and get my car, or drive me to work or drive my car back to me when he was done fixing it. We always had a lot to talk about. He was a kind soul. I will miss him.

Condolence From: Joanne Everhardus
Condolence: I’ve known Mark for 24 years, and he is a dear friend. We often talked and exchanged ideas for hours about health and nutrition, life, the world, our Moms, everything.

He was also my in case of emergency person. Always there with talking or help when in need. In the last few months, he had helped me for hours with advice. 
I’m so glad that I told him several times in the last months how grateful I was for his friendship, and how much I appreciated him.
He was kind and patient with me.
I assumed he would always be here.

I know that he had so many friends, and I am blessed that I could be one of them.
The hardest part now is that I can’t call him to talk.

I saved a voice message from him that he left me recently, after we’d gone to some art gallery openings and looked at some house-design books that were there. His voice sounded so excited, inspired, and full of joy. I will always remember him that way. I miss him so much.

Condolence: 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.

Condolence: I met Mark about 5 years ago, and along with his immediate friendliness, and easy going manner, I soon discovered his wealth of knowledge in a variety of fields. His interest in cars, nutrition, our respective Dutch heritage, and family value similarities led to many good talks. Mark was able to work on both my sons and daughters vehicles, and you could always trust him to let you know exactly what was wrong, and to give you the best value for his work of anyone. I viewed Mark as a brother and a friend, and will miss him more than I can say. “Hope to see you in the next one, man.”

Gods Speed my friend.

He will be missed!

Condolence From: Mike Blied
Condolence: Mark was a friend of mine. I don't think I've ever known anyone so honest or willing to help others. It was always good to see him when I ran across him downtown. He always had something to add to the conversation and was rarely negative. The world was definitely better with him here.
