Super nice guy and it really takes me by surprise. He'll be missed by many, many people, and I hope that he knew that.

Sad news. RiP.

I didn't know him personally, but I remember he was often selling arcade games for good prices at shmups.system11 forum a bit more than 2 years ago.

Ugh. Was he ill? If so, I wasn't aware. I bought my Ninja Baseball Bat Man from him. This unfortunate news will now give it even more meaning.

He wasn't ill. The way it was explained to me was that he took his own life .


Seriously- call the national suicide prevention hotline if you are in a bad place. If not from the states, there are similar places to call all over the world.
Call 1-800-273-8255
Available 24 hours everyday

Chatted a few times; had a few deals over the years. Echo what others said - very classy and polite at all times. Sad news indeed and prayers for his family.

He and I had a great chance to hang out with the Norcal guys during CAX and I can honestly say that I was inspired by his drive to open the hobby up to everyone. The community at large has lost a great one.

Oh wow!? I met Mark on the shmups forum, and every time we chatted, I never would have thought this could happen. As everyone has said, he was a real classy fellow and upbeat, and I was just telling my wife that Mark was the one we got the Sailor Moon board from some years ago.

I can only hope he has found peace.
