Mark was a Regular these last few years at Sunrise Physical Therapy, as he loved the pool. It seemed it was the only place he could exercise (particularly in the deep end) and float (on his back, he really enjoyed that), with some relief from his pain. It was hard to see him go through so much illness with his body. We all enjoyed his company, and reminiscing about days gone by, especially taking about the "older" Rock and Roll groups! We send our sincere condolences to his family and friends. Pam Sills and staff from Sunrise Physical Therapy

To All of the family of Mark Gates,
May you eventually fill your hearts with warmth of the kind memories of his life. When I think of Mark I think of the love he had for music, the seriousness of the races in Naperville, PQ., the love he had for his family and the farm.
When there was a race to get to the tractor pulling the manure spreader was pushed into high gear. When Sarah needed him to get ready for school, the cows waited. Hannah, when you went on your camping trip in high school and he asked Zack, to watch out for you at the meeting, Put a song in your hearts that you heard him play.
From the Edwards Family to yours. April Edwards
