Mark married the love of his life Kristin Delacy Sorenson of West Point, Utah on August 23, 1991. Together, they had four beautiful children. Their family was later sealed in the Las Vegas Temple on May 15, 2010. Mark was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, son, and uncle. His family was the most important thing to him.
Mark was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints where he served in many callings. He had faith in our Savior Jesus Christ and a strong testimony of the atonement.
Mark was an extremely diligent worker and he strived to teach his children the value of hard work. He provided for his family as a heavy equipment operator since 1993, and worked at Las Vegas Paving. As a hobby, Mark enjoyed creating custom knives which he sold from his home and at the local Pomegranate Festival. He also enjoyed riding his motorcycles, flying RC planes, and playing guitar with his children. He could fix or build just about anything he set his mind to. Mark loved the outdoors, fishing and hunting, and spending time with his family. He had a great sense of humor and was a positive influence on everyone that knew him.
