    Very very sad. My time spent talking case mods, life and everything else with you will be missed. The custom AMD case you designed for me will be retired and kept as a tribute to your mastery. My thoughts are with the family. MKmods will not be a name that will fade with time. Sleep well my friend.
     
    Cold Storm says thanks.

    Thoughts...

    I have been reading the posts and am still amazed by the response (including the post by Cold Stone of the Birthday Card I made for Mark). I never realized just how much he shared or how much broader the conversations were (beyond modding). I have no experience with Forums and apologize for any breaches of etiquette in my notes. But I want to say Thanks for truly being a "family" to my brother! He always spoke very highly of you -- but I never fully understood how special a group he was a part of. Thank you for adding so much to his world and making his life that much better!

    I've been called worse ;)


    He was very well liked at this site. With a lot of knowledge he shared threw my endless worklog, his build logs, other build logs, and the modding club house.

    I surely appreciate how he touched other people's lives by giving them advices and help as evidenced by the many heartfelt comments here on TPU and on other sites! A last "Hurray" for a very helpful man! You would be missed Mark....

    My condolences to Mark's family. I didn't know him personally, but looking at his mods and the responses from people here I can tell that he was beyond a great guy and a good modder.

    Ahhhh geez. That's really sad. I've seen the guy around here and there, always seemed like a real helpful and friendly guy. I never had the chance to meet or even talk to him. I bet I missed out on a lot :(
    RIP MKmods

    I just now saw this thread.

    I am completely speechless. This has actually brought tears to my eyes. I knew he was ill, but I had always held out hopes that he would rebound and be back in the Anime Clubhouse chatting it up with us. He was truly a great, great man. One of the most caring individuals I have ever had the pleasure of talking to. He is greatly missed by us.

    May you rest in peace, Mark.


    EDIT: I think we should sticky this.

    Yet another reminder about how quickly life can change, or even end. Any of us could go any day. Time seems to drag on forever in the present, but in the past it seems to flash by in the blink of an eye. Let's try to live our lives unbound by regrets.

    MK was certainly a valued member of our community. We learned a lot from him, and I expect we will continue to learn from him.

    Pete, don't be a stranger. I thank you for coming to us to let us know, but you don't have to leave it at that. Feel free to stick around...

    I did not see this thread either.
    Even though a month later, my heartfelt prayers and condolences to all his family and friends.

    I did not know Mark, but from the responses in this thread there is something we can all ponder.
    "It's not what we get out of life, but what we put into it."

    Mark seemed to take that to heart. God bless.

    Can't believe the news, looking at the case mod in my sig and seeing his posts in there, very helpful guy. But now that I search for his case mod threads, they seem gone, they use to have tons of posts, amazing builds, would be sad to know they are just gone :(

    I can't believe I didn't know about this until just now. I didn't really know him beyond a few forum replies back and forth on occasion, but he was a great guy. When I used to be more active here, his mod threads were always my favorite and I would constantly check them for updates. It's amazing to think how many people he inspired.

    I never knew of him as a person, but from reading - he must have been a great guy. Sad to hear what has happend. I do know about that Lego computer case, just did not know that was he who made it.. in my eyes he was a legend just for that.
    Rest in peace.

    Oh man.. I have not been around here much lately but just read this news. Really sad, he really was a top guy who definitely inspired me. If God has a computer in heaven Mark will be helping him mod it. Peace brother.
