If you ask Mark about his greatest life accomplishment, he will tell you, “I really “out-kicked my coverage” in marrying my wife, Laurie, and I helped rear two outstanding young men who understand what a strong work ethic is all about.”  Mark and his wife Laurie reside in Bexley where they are members of Bexley United Methodist Church.  In his free time, Mark enjoys gourmet cooking and spending time at his 40-acre “get-away” property.
