Although I did not know mark he friended me on Neighbors and he did make me giggle a few times. Rip

As a child, some of my fondest memories of Mark were as the cousin who was full of joy and energy. He was the older cousin who always made us laugh and was ready for an adventure. Trips to Cando to visit the Eggls, were filled with laughter and fun. Mark would entertain us with witty jokes and by playing the trumpet (one of his many talents). At Mark and Carla Ann’s wedding, Mark was beaming from ear to ear and I remember thinking Carla Ann was the most beautiful bride I had ever seen. In later years, I appreciated Mark’s charity work and his designs as an architect. I have so many fond memories of Mark as a wonderful man and cousin. I’m so sorry for your loss—Carla Ann, Stephen and Ashley. I’m sending prayers for healing and peace for all of the Eggls.💕

Janet and I were shocked and deeply saddened to hear of Mark's passing. I first met Mark in 1988. I was charged with selecting an architectural firm to design an upgrade and renovation to Union City Hall. Mark's firm, Design Partnership, had recently completed a project for USC Union. In view of the firm's high rating, I contacted Mark concerning the City Hall project. After our initial interview, there was no doubt that Mark was the man for Union's project. Later, Mark's firm designed a new administrative building and laboratory for Union's wastewater system. Mark's professionalism and attention to detail resulted in highly successful projects. Mark and I maintained our relationship over the years. Our families enjoyed socializing and boating together at Lake Murray. I am older than Mark by 12 years. He often stated to me that he considered me as an older brother, which was extremely pleasing to me. After Mark's retirement, we continued our friendship, talking frequently by phone to discuss family, world events, sports and whatever. If you knew Mark, he was never at a loss for words. Carla Ann, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Mark will be greatly missed. We love you. Tommy and Janet Sherbert

I never had the pleasure of meeting Mark in person, however, when my husband and I moved to Fripp Island in 2020 he was among a group of wonderful neighbors who made us feel incredibly welcome in our new home. We were both very saddened to hear of his passing and just wanted to let his family know that his character is a legacy that will live on long after his physical presence has passed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My family was blessed to have Mark and his family as such a close and important friend. He was a second Dad to my children, especially my son. Mark had so many talents that he shared willingly with so many people!! Mark will be missed by us all! I am here for all his family, who are my "second" family, for years to come!! I love you all! MaryBeth

A fine man will be missed.

Another distinguished Clemson Alumnus now rests in honored glory as God's newest angel. While I never had the honor and privilege of meeting Mark, I know his wife's family from my hometown of Barnwell and I am confident SC is a little better off for having a North Dakotan who has made significant contributions to the Palmetto State. Mark's professional architecture work and gregarious demeanor truly exemplifies the old Clemson moniker "A Clemson Man Needs No Introduction!" May God's loving hand guide each family member and loved one as they long remember the sterling and everlasting legacy of this true American Patriot. Earl Hansford Grubbs, Barnwell Native and CU 67

Dear Family--my heart aches for you all. Mark was so special to both JF and I, for different reasons. JF and Mark grew so close during those Greenville High years and talked regularly since then, sharing joys and struggles and marveling at how quickly time passes. I remember sitting in Sirrine Stadium at a football game decades ago, overhearing a distinctive accent coming from some strangers next to me. As a native Montanan, I recognized it as North Dakotan. It was Mark's relatives from tiny Cando, ND, where my college buddy was also from and we spent the rest of the game chatting about "home." By the end of the game, I considered them friends and loved Mark even more. We were kindred spirits -- both transplants from the rugged northern plains to the kinder, gentler South. We invited him to Surfside and he invited us to Fripp and I'm so sad now that we didn't make it happen. I pray the Lord will wrap His arms around you all and give you peace and comfort, and strength for the days ahead. --JF & Lisa Lucas
