Mark passed away on March 23, 2016 at the age of 66. Mark leaves behind his wife of 45 years, Janet; daughters, Kelly (Blake) Laursen, Katie (John) Feste and grandchildren JP & Lucia Laursen and Frank & Jane Feste. Mark practiced law for 41 years. We are grateful he joined us for the last three. Mark hired Jon as a law clerk in 1980 and Paul was hired as a law clerk at Chadwick Johnson & Condon in 1989. He was an integral part in training two young lawyers years ago and fortunately all of us again at Iverson Reuvers.
He very much believed that if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. Mark loved the water and vacationing with his family. He loved sailing; spending many summers sailing in Hobie Cat regattas, in Bayfield on his boat the Kelleen, the British Virgin Islands and the Ionian Sea in Greece. There were countless trips to Ixtapa, Mexico where he could be found under a beach palapa having a margarita and enjoying the sunset. Mark was a funny, fun loving, generous, inclusive and deeply compassionate man. A mentor to many, Mark devoted his life to his family, the law, and helping others. We will miss him greatly but we are indebted and grateful for the energy and joy he brought to the office every day.
