To the family of Mark Hughes,
I’m so sorry for your loss and cannot believe it has been over two Months since his passing. Mark was like a brother to me and he has been missed since he retired from Williams Parts & Supply co. He was a kind and generous man and as loyal as can be imagined. I was hoping to give my condolences in person to Linda , Mark Jr, Paul, Missy and Kathy however it seems like I t isn’t in the cards with the world pandemic. I want you to know that he was a great friend and employee... He would do anything to help anyone and I hope he is with all his favorite four legged passengers! God bless you and know he will always be missed.
Patty and all of his family still with us at WP &S.

My sympathy in the loss of Mark! My memories are all the rides he gave me from the Hughes home to the Levanen farm. And picking Kathy up to take her home! He was the big brother that took care of us little giggling girls! May Our Sovereign God comfort you and strengthen you in the lonely days ahead. With prayer, Mary (Levanen) Ovist

My family and I are sorry for your loss. Mark and I grew up together in Calumet. Because of his enthusiasm, he and I would ride our bikes down into Traprock Valley with fishing poles and high hopes. He also led me to the local Boy Scout troop under Sergeant Monette and we had many fine adventures. Our family moved away in 1965 and I had not seen him since. Condolences, Jim Pollock
