Mark grew up and attended school in Hutchinson. After high school, Mark attended Hennepin County Technical School. Mark was employed by Best Buy for almost 30 years. Mark resided in Minnesota and then in Arizona, where he moved to in 2001. Mark owned and operated Dance to the Music DJ service, which gave him pride and joy.

A gift that will provide hope for future generations. The family wishes to thank Hospice of Marion County, Ocala, Florida, for its gentle, compassionate care. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Hospice of Marion County, the humane society or A celebration of life will be held in Minnesota at a later date.
