    Good luck Buddy.


    One of my dearest Bros had colon cancer some years back. He just couldn't "go" and it built up 'till it got real painful for him. Went to e.r, x-rays showed the blockage which was a huge tumor. Had the surgery and did the chemo hell...

    After all of that he got lung cancer. They took the bottom lobe of his left lung. Went through chemo hell and a ugly divorce at the same time.

    He reconnected with a Lady friend from his younger days, she's had it rough her entire life.

    The 2 of them finally get a little bit of happy in their lives, now she has a cancer.


    cancer sucks. it just sucks.

    Get checked folks...early detection is key to survival. That and a very strong positive mental outlook.

    Mark was a great guy and an ever better mentor. When everyone would say it can't be done, he was always there to back me up and help find a way.

    I hope you are in a better place!

    I just saw this. Been reading several of Mark's posts lately as I worked thru TBI issues, posts here and several other forums. Didn't really know him but I'm very sad to read of his passing. Makes me happy, however, to know his knowledge carries on in his posts throughout the Internet. He won't be soon forgotten.

    Bumping this maybe someone who was close here to Mark should check on his wife to let her know we still are a bunch of good guys here and make sure she is OK.

    I think Steve has her contact info? Or maybe it was just Mark's email from his user account.
    But I agree. It'd be nice to check in on her and make sure she's ok.

    Man, I am kinda bummed out; I just now learned of his passing.

    Recently I have been going through a lot of Mark's postings on gearhead-efi.com, as he unloaded a wealth of information on that site and on here too. I was just going back through the various posts I have been researching on for my own datalogger/viewer for 16147060 ECM and came across this sad and unfortunate post. What a bright and friendly guy.

    I know he is in a better place now.

    I miss his informative posts and willingness to help and explain. Does anyone know how his wife is? I remember she was battling her own health issues as well.
