Mark was such a nice man. He loved his family and he loved God. He will be
missed. He was happy to be a member of Hamilton Mill United Methodist and the Seekers Sunday School Class.
My heart is sad over the passing of this dear man. He had such a sweet spirit and always a smile. I feel blessed to have known him even though it was just for a short time.

I first met Mark around 1975. We didn’t know each other but we had that first meeting trust. I worked for Mark on substations in Indonesia. In the last 50 years we have had unbelievable experiences together. Few people can say they really had a true friend who they loved but I can. Mark watched after me like a father. It was a honor to have had such a friend and brother like Mark. Rest In Peace my friend. And by the way say hi to Marty for me.
My love is with each of you. Uncle Mark, dad, Wayne and Uncle Phillip are having a grand reunion. I will always cherish the times spent with your dad and mom.
My prayers are with you all
Melissa, I know how hard this is for you and how close you were with your Dad. I am praying for comfort and peace for you and your entire family. Know that you Dad is healed and now rejoicing in Heaven with your Mom. My thoughts and heart are with you as you go through this sad time. Tanya
My deepest sympathies to family and friends. I remember that Mark made me feel very welcome at Irby when I first started. I always thought he was such a smart and kind person.

So sorry to hear about Mr. Mullen’s passing. With fond memories we have with Mr. Mullen. We worked in the safety department and Mr.Mullen always greeted me with a smile and “good morning”.
Mark was my uncle. I was lucky. There are many great people and he was one of the greatest. I was lucky. As a young girl thru early adulthood I saw him regularly. Those times were filled with smiles and laughter. He always had kind words for me. I still remember his laugh and how his eyes twinkled. I wish I would have lived closer to him. My life would have been better and I a better person. He is with God now. Not because he was a good person but.because he trusted in Jesus. I know this because he lived it. He is now among the great crowd of witnesses that have gone before us.
Melissa and Mark: you are so lucky to have had him. You will stay in my heart as you go thru this time of great grief.

I have known Mark to be a great guy and consistent Christian since 1970. He will be missed by all who knew him.
Mark, in the short time I was privileged to know him, became a friend whom I came to admire. He was a quiet and gentle man in every aspect of the word. I came to see also that he had a high intellect and was well read and knowledgeably. I will miss him very much. Rest in peace Mark.
