Mark grew up in Mims, Florida touching the lives of so many with his enormous heart and listening ear. As a dedicated lawyer in Tampa, Florida, Mark worked tirelessly for his clients achieving full partnership with Shutts & Bowen LLP in 2013. Loving, kindness, and patience are but a few of the words that define him. His catch phrase was “Don’t Worry”. The best often die young which certainly is the truth in his case. He is now at rest in Heaven.
