Very sad to hear. Seemed like a really great and genuine guy. Awesome builder, too.

I gotta say, this has hit me. I lost a co-worker here this week too. Funeral is on Tuesday.

I only interacted a little bit with Mark, but his work was top notch, and his help and influence on the forum will be missed in the long run. My condolences to his family, if they see this.

I never know how to react to this type of information.  It's terrible.  RIP Mark.  I always enjoyed reading his posts, and I think I have a couple of his builds done.

It saddens me to realize I know of three people who have now taken this path, two of which in the last year. 
The only known cure in the world for GAS is death.  That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Yeah, this is the second in a few months for me.  The first was a family friend that I grew up with.  I still haven't reconciled why, and I'm not sure it will ever really make sense to me.

Such a massive shame
He had bucketloads of talent

With a few other things going on in my life, Im so glad of a holiday tomorrow. Dont be worried I dont suffer from any mental health but everyone goes through periods where things can become overwhelming. In some cases a rest or a change is whats needed.

Oh man, I'm just now seeing this. Such a shame.

On the few occasions I PM'ed with him, I could tell he was a good guy.  I know some of the questions I asked him about SMT must've been terribly n00bish, but he was always very gracious/patient.  I can't think of a single question I ever asked him where he didn't take the time to reply, and I remember remarking to myself how detailed he was in his responses.

His building skills have already been widely praised, and rightfully so.  I'll just agree with everyone else by saying his stuff was some of the best I've ever seen anywhere (I'll never forget that EQ).  Obviously a very creative & talented person who will be missed.

That's a great shame.  I did not know him, but Bean, thank you for posting and for your heartfelt comments.
