Mark, we were going to take over the rock n roll world in 1973. From skipping class in your car listening to Alice Cooper and Grand Funk , to you teaching me Smoke on the Water, to your first Gibson SG. Your parents practically adopted me as their own. I'm sorry we lost track of each other but trust the music memories we made at 16 carried you well into your life. Rest in Peace my old friend. My condolences to family and friends.

My heartfelt condolences to my cousin Mark's family. His wife April, brother Harold Jenkins, sisters Cathy Story, Teresa Alday, and other family and friends. Mark was a remarkable person. A great guitarist, husband, brother, and son. We had so much fun when Uncle Harold and Aunt Faye were on military leave and all of you would stay with us. Mark, go rest high on the mountain for your work on Earth is done. You will be loved and missed by all. Prayers to the family. A
