He suffered from anoxic brain damage since September 28, 2012. He was our walking miracle as he survived death three times in one year. He had to start life over again by learning simple things such as swallowing, drinking, dressing himself etc. Due to the love and care of his mother, family, friends and doctors, he overcame many obstacles. He had a strong will and determination to live, which he accomplished. Mark was a well trained heavy equipment operator, loved car races, enjoyed fishing, camping and the great outdoors, and was a diehard Oakland Raiders fan. He also enjoyed time with his family.
