    Mark the first thing that will always come to my mind when I think of the truly blessed times I have spent with you is LOVE.
    Seeing the love and commitment to your family. The love and compassion to others. WoW I have a lot to learn. When I speak of you I will always tell and know in my heart that you gave your life for Christ.

    Lord thank you for putting Mark in my life.

    My dad was always so concerned about my brother and I. If you would've met him you never would have guessed that he was dying of kidney failure. He was cheerful and optimistic, and he spread goodwill to everyone he met. He never wanted things to be about himself. Though he was deathly sick, he always wanted to help us with our smaller, minuscule problems. Even at his funeral, he hoped that his death would teach others about themselves. Dad was the best, and HE STILL IS.

    I shared an office with Mark at the Chrysler dealership for a few years. During that time we enjoyed a great working relationship. Mark would always be willing to help in anyway at anytime. He of course will be and is truly missed by those of who knew and worked with him.

    Mark was especially fond of spicy food and we told him about a small restuaurant in Daytona called Song Kran. Its a Thai place that serves traditional Thai and Chinese food. He loved it, his favorite dish seemed to be a thing called Prig King, but it had beans in it that he didn't like. So, Mark being that gentle fellow, asked as he sat down at the table to have the beans removed from the dish. His request was, of course granted, but the Thai people thought he was a little odd. He had enjoyed it so much, he often went there on the way home to pick up take-out for the family and came familiar with the owners and the servers. In the end, the owners knew him so well that as he walked into the premises they used to say "Here comes Prig King no beans!!" Beans or no beans Mark, you will be sorely missed, we love your family very much.

    I have known Mark for many years. I know he had serious personal problems, but I knew him as a man of God. I worked with him on Via de Cristo weekends. He often asked me to pray with him and for him, I espescially remember the desperate times when Noah was born with difficulties. Our prayers for Noah were answered mightily. Mark was a true Christian leader. He inspired others to follow Christ in their lives. I am so grateful that Mark was able to serve with me on Via de Cristo #34 which recently concluded. While Mark was not able to serve on the weekend (he was our Heavenly prayer warrior), he faithfully attended our team meetings. Mark received lots of love from his team mates, he worked hard on his talk for the weekend. I was able to listen to his final practice talk and he was superb. He spoke clearly and convincingly, sharing the story of our mutual friend Greg Dabkowski who passed away some years ago. He referred to a member of our team who was suffering with a serious illness, but did not share that it was him who was suffering. Mark was a kind, sharing man who shared his faith so beautifullly with others. I know he is now resting comfortably in the loving arms of Jesus, pain free, dancing and singing praises to our Lord.

    Words can't express the sorrow we feel for the loss of a wonderful Christian father and husband. You are all like family to us and we share some wonderful memories. One of our favorites is how Brant use to think Noah was his brother and what a kick we all got out of that. We shared some great family times and we will cherish them always. We shared Marriage Encounter and Via De Cristo which brought us very close and your influence in our lives has changed us forever. We love you all and are here for you. May God wrap you all in a blanket of peace and comfort as He carries you through the upcoming years. We love you!

    My heart goes out to the Casinger family for their loss. I did not know Mark, but am a friend of Mark's father, Roger. I graduated with Roger and recently have visited with Roger at mini-reunions and the big 50 in 2007. I know how much Roger's children and grandchildren mean to him and I just want to tell you all that my heart aches for you and my prayers and thoughts are with you.

    Mark, you will be greatly missed. We remember vividly how you would sit with your sons at our monthly dinner with the Via De Cristo and comfort them as needed. Your love for your sons and Kristi was so evident in your eyes and in his actions.

    Your love for the Lord was even greater and flowed out to all your Christian friends and family. Thank you Mark for sharing your life with us.

    I am so deeply saddened to learn of Mark's passing. Mark, Mike, Frank, Wes and I used to hang out together in the Little Theater at Tucson High. Not having many friends, I truly cherished those times. There are also some summer memories... but that's a whole 'nother story!

    One time Mark wasn't acting very nice to his then girlfriend and he was heartbroken when she broke up with him. I wrote him a rather scathing letter about his behavior and used all the emotional tricks he taught me. (Build 'em up and then bring down the house of cards.) About a year later, he wrote me a letter from Germany and let me know how much that letter meant to him and how he kept it in his bible. I have always felt deeply humbled that he let me know I had an impact on his life. Over these many years I have often thought of all of us and have missed those times. I was so hoping to get to see everyone at the 20th THS reunion but it just didn't work out that way.

    I am sure that Mark brought as much joy and laughter to all the other people he met before he left us. Frustration, too, if memory serves me right! But he was strong in his convictions and his heart was tender even if he tried not to show it. (Hey, my memories are from High School, what do you want???)

    To all his friends and family, please know that while you never "get over" the loss, the pain changes over time. There will come a time when memories bring more joy than sorrow. It just feels like it will never happen. Every time you share a story about Mark, he lives on. Grieve for those that never got the chance to meet him even while you grieve the loss you feel.

    While you may never have known in life the impact you had on others, I'm sure you understand things now that we can only imagine. I will miss you deeply. I pray that your friends and family will find comfort in knowing that while you are no longer in the flesh, you live on in ways that are hard to comprehend. I know I will see you after I leave this mortal coil (hopefully not too soon!) and we can goof off and do improvs with everyone. You are deeply loved and missed. Thank you for being a friend during some of the hardest years of my life. I learned well, my firend, and I promise to continue showing others the same kindness you showed me.

    Uncle Mark, I will never forget the days when Mom, Kim, and I stayed at Grandma's & Grandpa's house with them, you, and Uncle Mike. Your stories of Scrubby, Tiny and the rest of the gang were something Kim and I loved to hear. I will always cherish the memories I have from that time in my life. You will be missed by many.

    My Uncle Mark,
    I will always treasure in my memory the time I was able to spend with you in my early years. You were a friend who, though my Uncle, allowed me to be a kid and treated me as such. Scrappy and his friends were mine as well and you have always held a special place in my heart and memories. I miss you deeply but I am deeply grateful for the singular opportunity I had to know and appreciate you. God speed Uncle Mark. You will be deeply missed.

    I’m still not over the shock of last Friday, just the week before Mark and I talked about how his medical treatment was going and his plans for the future. Now he’s with Mom and they are watching us struggle with this loss in our lives.

    I still rememember our discusions about sports, politics, and life in general. Sometimes they got loud and we disagreed, but we were always brothers. When we were younger, we’d go for runs that lasted hours and went for miles, we were in our own little world talking about our lives and our futures… these were truly good times.

    In the last six months I’ve been able to visit with Mark and his family a couple of times and I will always cherish the memories of these visits. We talked about our lives, the things we’d done wrong and the things we’d done right. But most importantly, we’d talk about our families and how much we loved them and how proud we were of them. I wish we could have spent more time together, but I’ll be forever grateful for the time we had.

    Take care little brother, I love and miss you…

    I have tried to write this a number of times but have not been able to complete it because of the emotion and grief that I feel for the loss of my son Mark. I know that I am not alone in my feelings. There are many others that also grieve. He was a husband, a loving father to two wonderful children, a brother to three and a caring friend to so many. He was my child, my son and the loss is so devastating that it is something that I am not even capable of expressing. My thoughts go back to his brith and the happiness that he brought to both me and his Mother. All through his childhood, so many years ago, I can think of so many funny things that he did and all the wonderful memories that he has left forever imbedded in my mind. Watching him grow from childhood to manhood has been both an honor and very privileged journey. There are no words My Son to describe how much that you will be missed and how much that you are loved. I Love You. Dad

    I do not have the words to express the loss I feel. I mourn so greatly for the loss of my brother,but even more so for the loss of a husband to his wife, and a father to his children.
