Fantastic character, glad I knew and worked with him made our job so much easier and happier with all the banter and cheekiness.

My heart goes out to Leah and the children. Can't imagine their pain at this so sad time. Bless you all xxx

John Mills Gary Congram please use this picture (see above) of "our" Mark. I think this was probably one of the happiest days of his life . 9th September 2011. His wedding day to his wonderful dedicated young wife Leah Vevers Tidbury. This was the day his six children came together as one happy family, his house in Padgets Way was always full of love and laughter .. A bit like The Waltons' crammed to the rafters with love ... I am sure this is the picture he would have liked to be held for village posterity .... Love Conquers All
