He spent his childhood on the family farm/ ranch in Straw, Mont. After graduating from Moore High School in 1969, he started to farm on his own. There he met his best friend Debbie Johnson and they raised their three children. Mark loved riding horses in his younger days and loved driving his corvette as he got older. Mark’s passion for farming never faded, even after he officially retired he got a job working on a farm in Shepherd. Those who knew Mark the best would say that he could be brutally honest and that he always had something to say. But everyone knew Mark loved his family and was always there when someone was in trouble. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all knew him, but we will especially miss his sense of humor.
