So sorry to hear about Mark’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of the family!
I was very surprised and saddened to see this on my news board. Thanks for always treating me like one of the family, showing me what good Italian sausage tastes like, and more importantly just being a fun guy to be around. Take care to my Santone family, take care.
I don’t know where to start. All my love and condolences to the Family. We met when they were doing business behind Red Devil Pizza and I was working in the Italian Cheese Industry what I guess was just over 30 years ago. I was so fortunate to know this Great and Loving Man that treated me like a Brother. By a Miracle I was able to spend time with him and Jeff, what pleasure that was. God Bless

I am so sorry for your loss. I just started to get to know him better as of late. He had a great sense of humor. I mentioned to him how Paul said he made the best and he glowed after hearing that. We will miss you Mark rest in Paradise.

To my family. I will never forget all the time we spent with Mark growing up. All the joy, all the laughter, all our family get togethers. Mark, you will be missed by everyone you’ve ever met. Rest well and know you are always in our hearts.
I just want to start by saying Mark and I were just like brotherly friends, Mark and I grew up in the same neighborhood and went to the same grade school (Orangedale) and went to the same high school (East High) together and were pretty much inseparable. We both loved doing the same things together such as football, basketball, track and field and not to mention motorcycles and racing. My wife and I, Pam, were very fortunate
to be able to see Mark and Anthony at an East High reunion at the Pointe Cliffs not too long ago.
Although, Mark is not physically with us but he is still deep in my heart with all the great friendship and memories.
Love you, my friend,
On the surface it feels like you left too soon but thinking through all our memories together gives me comfort in God’s plan. From basketball to camping, golf to poker we spent countless hours laughing and having fun. I will cherish those memories forever. Thank you for being a everything you were. Give Grandma and Grandpa a big kiss for me, I’m sure you guys have all played a few hands of poker already. Love you!
My brother and my friend growing up with Mark was a joy we rode bikes together we climb the mountains and play guitars together he taught me how to play a lot of songs on the guitar and I thank him for that I love my brother Mark very much and he will be greatly missed God bless you mark and I will see you soon.

Uncle Mark, We will always remember you . Your an amazing person and will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Friends and Family, Comforting someone or grieving together is not an easy task. While there is nothing we can do that can take away the hurt we feel, there are some ways we can be strong for each other and honor this wonderful man. We love you and are here for you.
I wish we could all gather in person to celebrate Mark. But know we are celebrating him all the way up here in Utah and wherever we may be. We are also praying for peace and comfort for each of you. May God bless and keep you until we meet again Mark.
Love to all.
Mark, Angie, Cruz & Aria
