Mark had an artistic eye for colors and learned he had a talent for sewing, which eventually led him from various jobs across the island to creating his own business, Aloha Canvas.

He was an avid surfer and bicyclist — he once bicycled all the way across the United States by himself! Mark was always there to lift people up, gave back more than he took and appreciated all acts of kindness. He had a way of making everyone laugh and making people feel good about themselves. He is survived by his father, two brothers, three sisters and by his three children. He had the biggest heart a man could have. He will always be missed.

A celebration of his life is planned for Dec. 4, 2016, at Waioli Beach Park at 3 p.m.
