Mark was one of the nicest persons I’ve ever known. I enjoyed our texts over the years about the Cardinals. I loved his laugh. I’ll always remember all the fun we had playing together when we were kids. I will miss him.

When I first saw Mark as an infant I thought "Now there is an interesting fellow". Mind you, he looked a lot like his father at the time. He grew up to become a quiet and witty soul, And always with a twinkle in his eye. I will miss him..

Mark was a great brother-in-law, and will be missed terribly. He was funny, warm, kind, and generous with his time. He was a great help to our dad in his later years, and he and Diana took Dad on a lot of great vacations. Mark grumbled about going on vacations and "running around" doing errands with Diana, but I know he enjoyed it. He was brave, strong and optimistic during his chemo treatments, and had a positive attitude throughout, even when he was exhausted and sick. He made my sister happy for 37 years, and he was a great brother. His family and cats will miss him.

Mark was a very kind and gentle soul. The entire Wafe Family welcomed me into their home and made me feel like I was part of their family. We shared many great laughs. Mark will be missed. Much love to all his family and friends. 💖
