He received a medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine and completed his residency in anesthesia from the University of Utah.
Mark married his sweetheart, Dona L. Newman, in the Idaho Falls Temple and went on to have five wonderful children. Mark’s children wanted all to know that he sacrificed his all to be with them. He would rather be with his children than anywhere else. Mark gave his children the world as they conquered mountains by skiing, bicycling, hiking and backpacking. Mark included his children in all his adventures and shared his love of life with them.
Mark is survived by his wife, Dona; children: Kiley, Sydney, Maxwell Mark, Courtney and Piper; parents, Edith(Ford) Wilson and Harold W. (Audrey) Staples; and sister, Michelle (Scott) Loughton.
Daddy, goodbye for now. We will miss you. Watch over us as we grow. We will continue to climb those mountains to be near you.
