Mark Roger Partington, age 75, passed away on December 7, 2021. He never met a stranger that was not soon turned into a friend. Those who knew him were delighted to find a jovial person quick to offer a joke, a kind word, and a smile.
He called his daughters his two treasures and always made us feel blessed to have him as a father. Mark will be truly missed by all of his family and friends.
Mark is survived by his two daughters Karen (Scotty) Conley and Ashley Partington, a lovely granddaughter Bryn, two sisters Anne Bradrick and Janice (Dale) May, and several nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents Roger and “Peggy” Partington.
Mark will be remembered fondly by all who knew him. There are people who lift the spirit of those around them, and Mark was a light to others his entire life. He enjoyed meeting people and did his best to leave any place better than he found it. Mark is surely surrounded by his family in Heaven, and we know they are all rejoicing together until we see them again. His family knows he will be spreading joy wherever he is. There will be no funeral services per his final wishes. Please honor Mark by sharing a hug, a handshake, or a joke with a loved one, blood donation, or a donation to your favorite national park as he always did.
