Mark was born April 27, 1954, in Amarillo to Melvin and Dorothy Harber. He was a genuine person and accepted anyone as they were with no judgement. The most important thing in his life was his family and friends.
He loved with his whole heart plus some. Mark enjoyed fishing, especially with his grandsons, the Dallas Cowboys, fantasy football, casinos (luckiest man you ever met), traveling, and SCUBA diving. Cozumel, Mexico was his favorite vacation spot and he made many memories there with his family and friends.

Mark made everyone feel like they were his favorite person.
