He spent his entire career working in the automotive industry from managing quick lubes for 17 years to sales to more recent years as the branch manager for Petro Choice Lubricants, Kingsport, TN.
Mark lived his life to the fullest and had a way of making those around him laugh and enjoy life. There wasn’t a car he couldn’t fix, a project he couldn’t tackle, or a motorcycle he couldn’t ride, but above all, he loved his family and being an amazing husband, dad, and papaw.
As a way to continue his fight against Esophageal Cancer, his wishes were to be an anatomical donation to the Quillen College of Medicine at ETSU.
In honor of Mark’s life, his family will be hosting a Celebration of Life, Saturday, July 11, 2020 at The Heritage in Jonesborough, TN from 2:00-5:00 pm located at 161 Molly Grayce Lane (behind Food City & casual attire).
In lieu of flowers, please help to spread awareness for esophageal cancer #millerstrong.
My prayers and thoughts are with Kim , Cecilia and Chevy. Mark was a great friend and former co-worker always fun to be around,He will be missed by all that knew him.
I would like to offer my Deepest Condolences on behalf of my Family and the PetroChoice Team. It is very difficult to put into words how Mark impacted our lives. I have had the privilege of working with Mark for several years. In our many discussions, his family is what meant most to him. To Kim, Cecilia, Chevy and Ella, he spoke often and proudly of all of you. I hope that you can find comfort during this time. This is most difficult for many, as we have lost a great friend. May his Memory be Eternal.
