I’m so sorry Jonelle and all your family!! I really remember Mark all these years right beside us.
With lots of love and hugs!!!
I am profoundly saddened. “Hoagie” was a great man. I met him in late 2016 when I moved up here after accepting a promotion at the prison. I came to know him very well. He was a professional in every sense of the word. Great leader and teacher for new staff. I am honored to know him. So sad he just retired a couple of years ago. Rest easy brother…
I knew Mark as Hougie, he was an awesome supervisor and coworker. He was methodical and soft spoken but was hard lined when dealing with unruly fellows. As a person I figure there was none finer. Didn’t know a lot about his home life. He kinda kept that to himself. I was so happy to see him retire and absolutely shocked when I heard of his passing. May God bring comfort to his family and all those he knew. R.I.P. brother
I had the honor, and pleasure, of working with him at WMCC. Always fair, always available to talk with. He left DOC just before I did. His non-presence was felt then. It will be felt more so now.
As this clown would say — Til we bump noses, and we will again…in time…
I am so sorry for your loss. I have had the pleasure of knowing Mark since 2011 when I started working at WMCC. He was a great man always willing to help anyone.
He was always willing to teach anyone that would listen. I never seen him ever lose his patience on the most trying times while working with him. He is greatly missed since he retired and even more missed now. I am fortunate to have worked with him and made a friend. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
