Fr. Mark...Now you are resting in Heaven. We're glad that we met you years ago. It's hard for us not being with you. We enjoyed chatted with you especially you drove out here from far. And what's more.....NO MORE DRIVING FAR and traveling for you even you drove to Florida yourself. That's shocked to me. It will not be the same without you. Most of all we will miss your sense of humor. And once more, many thanks for helping and served the Deaf Community.

I have memories of working the deaf picnics for Fr. Mark. Also, when my husband was going through RCIA, the dedication and faith was evident in Fr. Mark. We also relished the times We spent with Fr. Mark before we got married in the Catholic Church at St. Mary's in Minooka. Fr. Mark will be missed. Our condolences to the entire family.

We met Father Mark in high school when he would drive us from Naperville to Chicago to attend theater and movies. He then married us 45 yrs ago, married our son in the mountains near Yellowstone and was Godfather to our youngest son. No matter where we lived he would visit every year for a week. One of my favorite memories of him was visiting old churches and Indian reservations in New Mexico. He had just retired and had money

Father Mark and the Saints Peter and Paul organist took it upon themselves to train five willing but unpolished high school freshman into a quite credible choir for the 8AM Sunday mass. We sang music which was doubtless beyond our depth, but Fr. Mark made us believe in our collective strength and our own abilities. It was a joyous time which I always think on whenever Bach's Cantata 140 is played on the radio. Today, dear Fr. Mark, I will

I will always remember Father Mark's love of life. His joy and energy radiated to those around him. He made you smile; he made you laugh. I'll always remember the celebrations of midnight mass at St Jude's, the Christmas cards that never came at Christmas, and the love he had for life and people. He was a simple man with a great big heart!!

Fr. Mark will always have a special place in my heart. He helped my deaf daughter and son make their First Communion and Confirmation through the REACH program at St. Raphael church in Naperville. I'll always remember his silly hats at the Christmas Party and his kindness toward all the students in the REACH program.
