Mark Aloysius Larkin, Jr. passed away at the age of 93 on Thursday, June 13 in Scottsdale, Arizona. Mark was born in Omaha, Nebraska on March 3, 1931, to Mark A. Larkin Sr. and Henrietta Ketchmark. Mark spent his childhood years in the community of St. Bridget’s in South Omaha, Nebraska. He and his family moved to Phoenix, AZ in 1945. He attended St Mary’s High School where he played football, basketball, baseball and ran track. In 1949 he began his college education at Loyola University in Los Angles, CA. He later transferred to Arizona State University where he graduated in 1952 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance. Mark joined the Army in 1953 and was stationed in Korea where he worked as a Cryptographer and Auditor for the 8th Army. He proudly served his country for two years. He returned to Arizona in 1954 and worked for The First National Bank of Arizona in the Trust Department. He obtained his Real Estate and Broker’s License as well as his Certified Property Manger’s License. While at the bank he probated wills and estates, and managed farms, apartments and industrial buildings in Phoenix, Prescott and Flagstaff. After ten years, he went into Real Estate sales on his own and continued serving the Phoenix area as a realtor until he retired at the age of 62.

Mark loved hunting, fishing, camping, the Larkin-Ford family cabin in Pinetop, AZ and the beaches of Puerto Peñasco, Mexico. He shared these places and his adventures with a multitude of friends, family and the ever-growing Omniscope family!

Mark is survived by his wife Karen Maywalt. He is preceded in death by his second wife, Shirley Wedepohl, and his first wife Wanda Wells Larkin. Mark is also survived by his and Wanda’s children Terrie Larkin (Dan Cartier), Tim Larkin (Diane), Dan Larkin (Irene), Tom Larkin and his grandchildren Kira Larkin, Trevor Larkin and Cole Larkin. In addition, Mark was a cherished brother to his late siblings Jim Larkin (Florence), Colleen Ford (Richard) and Sister Mary Lou Larkin, BVM. He also leaves behind many beloved nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. We will cherish him forever and will miss him.

The family of Mark Larkin would like to express their gratitude to Savior Hospice (Crissy and Justin) and Best Choice Group Living Home (Karen and Kay). Their expertise, care, kindness, and generosity were invaluable to Mark and his family during this difficult time.

A celebration of life will be held at a future date.
