Yep, Mark was here for some time. He ran a very nice place called Coyote Wilds some of the best food I have ever eaten. Mark left and went south. He is very good friend and would do anything to help.

I remember Mark, having met him in KW, and I remember him as LosterBoy on the board!

He just sent me his new cell #, talked to him about a week ago. I miss all the fuc$ing wackey $hit that used to go through his head at the races. He's had some heart issues but says he's doing fine. God Bless you ya Rat Ba$tard! Love ya Man!

Funniest story I remember.

Key West, must have been 2004. He was running a big Cat.
I watched him go out of the harbor Race 1, and never came back. Saw him a few days later, and asked him what happened.

"IT was an electrical problem, Piston came out and knocked the plug wire off." Laughed my [email protected]@ off.

Sounds about right.

The only person I've ever met that made Dave Branch say "wow, that dude is phucked up".

I remember that description as well. I just fell of the couch laughing again. He was a trip. I think he made it to one of my original OSO Winter Chill-Outs as well.

Just talked to him at Daytona Turkey Rod Run. He is now in the grocery buggy restoration business. Imagine that. We spent some time together on Thursday and Friday. Great guy and nice to call him a friend. Roger A.
