    Please Read... Eagle Mark



    I am saddened to announce that EagleMark has lost his battle with brain cancer.

    Mark had a way of reaching out to others with help and support while remaining humble and grateful to those who were around him. In the few years I was lucky enough to know him we shared stories of traveling around the country, of working on cars and computers, of good jobs and bad, and of the lessons life gives us. Without going into too much detail Mark's story was very inspiring. Mark was the kind of guy that should have had more time but what he had he made the best of. He'd left home at a young age to see the country, learned one job after another with tough on the job training, married the woman of his dreams and raised a family. He built and lost a good business then built another, dealt with numerous health problems between himself and his wife, fought to provide the best upbringing and education for his son, volunteered help for local groups, and helped many, many folks with whatever both through the internet and in person. He was the force that organized Gearhead-efi and he never seemed to tire of helping people with their projects and problems here while staying active on various other forums to continue to learn and develop his EFI skills. He managed to keep his faith, his optimism, and his desire to help others even when he needed more help than he could give. Although he fought hard and continued to amaze and inspire people to the end, ultimately the cancer was too much.


    Rest, Mark. You are already missed.

    Mark has helped so many people and has helped me so much over the short time I have been on here. I wish I could have gotten the chance to meet him.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Its never easy losing a loved one and we have lost a really great man. Rest in peace man, you will be missed.

    he showed us so much strength and courage... but i think most of us knew how much he was really suffering, sick and in pain a lot more than he let on. these things never end well, and i'm relieved to see that he's at peace. i hope that none of us never have to experience the suffering that this he's been through.

    will never forget him, and my thoughts are with his family tonight

    goodbye mark

    I watched my dad go through similar pain and suffering in a losing battle with pancriatic cancer in 2011. It is tougher than many can understand. My thoughts and prayers are with Marks family and close friends. We will all miss Mark with his kindness and professional demeanor on this site and others. I am most relieved to know that he is no longer suffering.
    Rest in Peace Mark you will be greatly missed

    So sad to hear. I did not know him personally but I have read through many threads and learned so much from him that even though he doesn't know it I am extremely grateful for the time and dedication he put into this forum and the help he offered people because much of his stuff has greatly helped me. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends that knew him.

    I am at a total loss for words, I never met Mark, but felt like he was a friend just from our interactions here on Gearhead. You will be missed Mark.

    I was very fortunate to know Mark as a personal friend. Most of the time we shared was visiting on the phone or personal emails. I especially remember the time we shared together walking around one of the "Cruise In" events at Portland International Raceway. I wish everyone here would have had the opportunity to hear Mark share his thoughts about a vehicle he was looking at during the "Cruise In". Mark would share a more positive "The Glass is Half Full" thought about the vehicle he was looking at.

    I will miss the collaboration we shared about owning and operating an EFi business. We shared a common goal as business owners, help the customer. I will miss Mark's insight on helping customers. He set a very high benchmark!

    I echo much of what has already been written. I particularly admired how Mark would share his insights to help people help themselves. I'm disappointed I never got to meet him.
