Mark was an avid fisherman who had many favorite spots on the local water ways. Worth County Lake was at the top of his list for his favorite hot spot. He enjoyed being outdoors and spending time in nature relaxing. His children made fun of his bicycle but he loved riding it with Carter. Mark loved to make others laugh. He enjoyed watching wrestling and Hawkeye football. He had a passion for building things as well as fixing them with duct tape. Besides spending time with his children, Mark looked forward to eating (especially his Mom’s cooking) and sleeping.

Those thankful for having shared in Mark’s life include his Mother, Lorie Waters; children, Trisha, Hannah, Cayla, Carter and their half brother Alex; ex-wife, Oretta Waters; sister, Angie Waters; brother, Dan (Michelle) Waters; two half sisters, one half brother, one niece, Kenzie and one nephew, Coleman.

Mark was preceded in death by his father and grandparents.
