Mark was one in a million. We were close friends for a very long time. We also wrested, pole vaulted, and played football together which only strengthened our bond.

Mark was as sweet fair and funny as they come. He was also a fierce and loyal friend and competitor. He had more heart than folks you usually meet and a disarming wit.

I’ve seen him do amazing things. He was a wonderful person. Safe travels Zonk.

I have so many memories of Mark. He has always been a great person. Being younger then Mark I always looked up to him as a older brother and he always tucked me under his wing as I know he will do for all of his loved ones. My prayers and thoughts are with you all.

I was so very sad to hear about the passing of Mark. Having the pleasure to know the Zonker Brothers during my coaching tenure at Bellaire was an experience that I truly cherished! Many, many great and fond moments!!! I know how strong you guys are and I know God will get you through this.

Mark was a very sweet, well mannered boy and man. I knew Mark since high school. He graduated with Misty Carpenter. He was good in sports and everyone loved him. He has a son that is just like him. Good in baseball, Football and Wrestling. He is 8 years old. He will know what a great man he was. RIP Mark.
