Obituary: Mark Kowalske

Mark Kowalske

Mark David Kowalske, 48, passed away from natural causes in San Francisco. He was born in Phoenix on Sept. 9, 1965, and was adopted by his parents, David and Donna Kowalske. He is survived by his mother, Donna; and uncles, aunts and cousins all living in Wisconsin. Mark was a true delight to his parents and was a gentle person. He attended Manzanita School and graduated from Kingman High School in 1983.

While attending Architectural School in Phoenix, Mark was in a debilitating accident that left him hospitalized for four months. He was afflicted with bi-polar disorder that negatively controlled his later years. He resided in San Francisco these past 15 years.

Mark is now at peace in Heaven with his Lord God, his beloved father David and adored sister Wendy Marie. Wendy died as the result of a car-semi accident in 1975. David passed away in 1986.

Mark was cremated and interred in his family's section at Mountain View Cemetery in Kingman. Sutton Funeral Home and Pastor Ceri Ahlborn assisted with the arrangements and service.
