Mark you were the best kinda quirky. You were dance instructor, counselor, friend. Your laugh and puns and funny accents and sing song words to remember dance steps will never be forgotten. John and I send our love the family you left behind. Our heartfelt sympathy for today and tomorrow and tomorrow's tomorrow's.
One more thing Mark... I love you, ALWAYS & we will see one another again....❤🦋
I met Mark at Bluegrass Dance Center in Richmond, Ky. He was beautiful person and an amazing dancer. I will miss his style and his wonderful sense of humor. Even as I struggled to learn the dances, he kept me at ease, with his witty jokes. I am praying for your family during this tragic time dealing with this unexpected loss.
I am saddened by the loss of your brother Vickie and for Carmen and Brady, I send my sincere condolences
Mark.... My very dear friend. It just seems.like yesterday that we were sitting out in my yard talking. I still expect to wait for you to pull in my driveway so that we can just ride around Lexington or go see Erikia. I love when we ride to get ice cream or maybe just a soda & perhaps take a drive down to the ⛴ Ferry. I'm still not ready to accept that I won't see you pulling in my driveway in your blue & white SUV or the blue pick-up truck or 'OLE YELLER' the oversized van. I enjoy your company so much & especially enjoy the jokes & different stories you tell. You are a very enjoyable kind man to be around & I was with you practically everyday, after all we just stayed right up the street from one another. Mark, I'm also very happy that you met some of my family. They all have spoken very highly & well of you & are deeply hurt & sorry & will most definetly miss you. I'm sorry Mark I guess I'm being stubborn, hard head, whatever you want to call it, BUT I'm just not ready to accept your being gone. I'm just very stubborn like that & it'll take me a while. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE A PART OF MY LIFE MARK ALWAYS & I WILL ALWAYS HAVE A "SPECIAL PLACE IN MY ❤ FOR YOU... UNTIL I AM READY, I KNOW I WILL MISS YOU "FOREVER & ALWAYS." Mark, my daughter says you're in a better place & I can believe that.... BUT LIKE I SAID..."NOT YET, I'M NOT READ READY...❤🦋❤🦋❤🦋❤
So shocked and saddened by Mark’s passing. He will be missed by many, particularly in the dance community. I remember when he started training at my son’s business, Arthur Murray Dance Studio. Great smile and dancer.
