    1. Our deepest of condolences to the Maddox family and friends on the losses they have suffered these past months.
      Another classmate and friend gone to soon Mark was a good man. When in school he was always up-beat and friendly, even to those that weren’t great athletes or popular he made you feel like you belonged a part of the team effort. I was glad to have known him, If there was a real life “Fonz” Mark was the man.
      We’ll miss you old friend until we meet in the City of God!

  6. I will always remember Mark as the outgoing friend who had no ego and saw everyone as a potential new friend. He was handsome, talented, and athletic but had a humility few with his gifts have. He was a friend to our entire family and I know our mom was very fond of him for his warmth and wit. I am devastated for the family that lightning struck twice for them in the past six months. I wish them love and healing as they celebrate Mark and Michael’s lives in memory.

  7. Mark left a lasting impression on so many people from BHS and beyond. A motivator full of drive and ambition. He was passionate about his school, the products he sold, many things, and he excelled at anything he did. This is a stunner to say the least. May God bless him and his wonderful family.

  8. You were always the craziest cousin & we loved how you kept us all laughing. You will be missed. Prayers for the family.
