Mark was my freshmen history teacher at Northridge Prep. He clearly loved the subject matter and his ability to teach through story-telling was incredible. He inspired in me a love of history. I think of him often to this day when I read something about ancient Greece or Rome. I pray for Mark's family during this difficult time and offer my heartfelt condolences.

Dear Mark & Chris, Mary & Tim, I am sorry that Mark IV died. He was the first kid I ever babysat. When I held him as a new born, I knew that I wanted to be a Momma when I grew up. I was 17. The last time I saw him he told me I was the best babysitter he ever had. Maybe it was the Harry Chapin lullabies I sang to him, but more likely, it was the un-restricted flow of Oreos that I gave to him. My heart aches for you. My wish for you is that peace finds your hearts and souls so that you can get up and live to fight another day. I love you all. Annie Carter

My family and I are saddened by news of Mark. I am out of town and not able to attend the service. I knew Mark from our days at OLPH. He and I shared many classes together, and always had fond memories of Mark. He was humorous, smart, whimsical, and always able to put a smile on our classmates faces. His legacy will be missed, but not forgotten.

Chris - my most sincere sympathies to you and yours for your loss of Mark. I cannot imagine the pain of having a child pass before a parent - but I pray that your positive memories help ease your pain and that the love and support surrounding you offer comfort in your grief. God Speed to Mark and may he soar with the angels. God Bless you and yours. Sincerely, Amy

I am so sorry. Seeing Mark's photo in the announcement brought a smile to my face because he looks just like I remember him from our days together at OLPH in the 1980s! Sending love and prayers for all of his friends and family mourning his loss and searching for comfort in memories.
Paul Joseph left a message on March 21, 2022:
I had the privilege to be a high school classmate of Mark's. I had many classes with him, got to socialize with him, and even traveled with him to Greece and Italy on the Classics Tour. He was a singular character, a remarkable personality -- brilliant, intense, rigorous; sharp, witty, and often absolutely hilarious. While I haven't stayed in touch with him, I've certainly recalled him often over the years, always with a smile. I will continue to remember him fondly. I send prayers to his family, and deepest condolences.
Diane Crotty left a message on March 21, 2022:
Chris, Mark and family. How very sad. I am so sorry for your tremendous loss. I will always remember Mark as being so very thoughtful, articulate and helpful. Last I saw Mark was approximately 4-5 years ago and even then, he still called me Aunt Diane. He'd come over to visit, join us in celebrating my son, Tim McNulty's birthday from time to time, or just hang out. I will miss him. Condolences to the entire family. Love, Diane Crotty (Billy, Timmy and Michael McNulty's mother)
