Sorry to hear about Mark's passing. I have been cleaning the kitchen exhaust hood system at Greenfield’s Fish Stand for many years for Mark. I just completed the cleaning today and found out about his passing. Again, sorry to hear about his passing.

Our deepest condolences to Judy and Mark's family. We met Mark in the early 2000's on a route 66 ride. After our first meeting, we spent many more 66 rides to the Santa Monica pier with him and always looked forward to seeing him. Rest in peace dear friend.

Charles and I are sadden at the loss of our friend Mark. He always had a smile for me. We often poked fun at each other, and usually Mark ALWAYS got the upper hand. His laughter is what we will miss the most. Ride in to the wind, my friend. Peggy Hubbard
