A Friend Of Ours Passes Away

Not sure where to post this (someone correct me ). I am sure some of you knew the Senior Tech....Mark x22 from Oklahoma . If not , you can find him on my friends list. I got a terrible email from his niece that he passed away on Nov.5. Sorry to have to post this but I am sure he was friends with many on here .....Mike

Re: A Friend Of Ours Passes Away

That is a damn shame. He was very active here and had the best templates.
Was he ill or was this a sudden loss?

Re: A Friend Of Ours Passes Away

Very sad news. My thoughts go to his family and friends.
I posted several of Mark's excellent templates here in the last week or two, in response to requests for measurements. I found them to be really detailed, yet clear enough to understand right away; he definitely had a talent.

Very sad to hear Mike. Please tell Mark's family how much he meant to our community here, and how sorry I am for their loss. He was a first class Gentleman.

Sorry to see they have already taken his templates repository and pictures down from his photobucket account. Maybe we can gather a full set of his templates and create a living memorial to him where his knowledge can live on. Or does that sound hokey?

Brian that sounds like a great idea! The Photobucket links didn't work several months ago when I tried them, and I thought it was likely that Mark had re-arranged his albums and the links weren't valid any more. I saved several of his templates a year or two back, but it took me until maybe a fortnight ago to find them on an old computer, and upload them to my PB album. Here's the links:

http://i1218.photobucket.com/albums/...h6-25-2010.jpg
I have a few more that I'll dig out and upload to PB as well.

Very cool. I'll pull what I have too and see what we are missing.
