We always purchased our Christmas trees from Mark and for many years Mark purchased his winters coats from Robert when he worked at Carson's. He loved our pig mailbox when we showed him pictures of it and requested that we bring him the sale sheet with all the pictures. He said his motorcycle buddies would love it.

Condolences to his family.

Mark was a great guy! He helped me set up a tree planting program in our neighborhood in Palos Heights. He always had some good advice to share about plants and trees. Enjoyed stopping in to see him at the Prairie House. My condolences to you all.

Mark was a great guy with a big heart, always willing to help out. We loved seeing him for years at the Prairie House, and many parties from years before that. Mark, I’m hope you’re having a Heineken with my brother Pat and sister Erin. Rest In Peace, Joe Harty and family.
