Mark we will be sincerely missed at Spectrum Health South Pav. lab. We really enjoyed him and enjoyed laughing with him while I held his hand for blood draws. Prayers for comfort during this difficult time.

We extend our Condolences to Amy & the Boender Family on Mark's Passing. As a Watermark Club Home owner, we enjoyed great story telling with this beautiful caretaker. Mark would share his skiing activity as well as growing skills to maintain his Services. Mark loved everyone of his customers and we loved back. Mark was very special, & he taught us alot. May Mark enjoy his Lord and Angels in Heaven. We will miss Mark ! JJK

I was saddened to learn of Mark’s passing this morning. Our family has been served by Mark for more than twenty years and always found him to be gentle, honest, kind and always the gentleman. He always impressed me as a model Christian man…hard working and treating everyone with respect. He will be missed. My condolences to the Amy and the whole family.
