Mark was a good guy and a great all-around athlete.  Never knew anyone who could throw a baseball farther.  We lived in the same ward in Jr. High and High School and Mark had the 57' Chevy wagon for cruisin --- & I loved sitting in the back seat with Ann Palmer!  I just can't believe they're both gone.  Just sorry I didn't stay in touch with Mark after East.

I still tell my kids about Mark's ability to throw the softball and javelin. I once saw him throw a softball from the outfield fence, nearly going over the backstop behind the catcher. I'm sure he could have gotten it over the backstop if he had tried. I got stuck pitching because I couldn't throw the ball anywhere near that far. 

I also used Mark's javelin techique to train my youngest son when he was in high school. Although my son didn't place in the state meet, he did place high in region and qualified for the state meet. As for me, I could only throw the spear about 90 feet. I think Mark threw it at least twice that far.
