We foaled mares for Mark and his brother Joel for many years. Mark always made it a point to come right after the foal was born to see it. He loved the horses and the foals. He always had stories to tell when he visited us. Never a dull moment when Mark was around. We are definitely in shock to hear of his passing. Our sympathy goes out to his family.

I have known Mark since we were in nursery school at St Johns Lutheran in Morgan. We are two of the Z's in the class from k-12. He has always been kind and funny and full of life and I will miss our conversations on FB over the many years. Sending prayers of comfort to all his family and friends.

Jeff and I are stunned and saddened. What a tragic loss. Mark was a funny, bright, intelligent class act who demonstrated graciousness, kindness and generosity in his actions and words. I remember him driving to our farm, dropping off a bottle of Makers Mark (all the way from KY), to congratulate and thank Jeff for his hard work on the successful agreement between CBY & Mdewakanton Sioux Tribe. This was on behalf of he and his brother Joel. The world has lost a wonderful person and heaven is all the more beautiful, because no doubt, he is there.
