Mark died in the arms of his children on Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021, after a short illness.

Mark came to Princeton from Santa Fe High School and majored in politics and political economy. He played freshman football and club rugby and was a member of Tiger Inn.

Always a proud New Mexican, he returned to Santa Fe and earned a law degree at the University of New Mexico Law School. He was in private practice but served as a city attorney for Santa Fe from 1996 to 2000, and as a county probate judge from 2007 to 2016.

One of Mark’s dreams was to have a cabin up in Pecos, in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and when he accomplished it he shared it widely with family and friends, describing his time there as if in disbelief of his luck.

Princeton friends remember Mark’s bright eyes, ready laughter, and quickness with a quip. He loved a good debate, making him a natural for the law.

Classmates extend their condolences to Mark’s children Jordan, Mack, and Austin; his companion Lisa Estrada; and sister Donna. He will be missed by many.
