Mark was born May 25, 1955 in Marysville, Ohio the son of the late Theodore and Lucille (Nicol) Stierhoff. He was a graduate of Fairbanks High School. Mark retired after 42 years of service at The Scotts Company. He was a member of the Trinity Lutheran Church, Marysville and attended the Middleburg United Methodist Church for the last 33 years. There, he was a trustee and served on the Labor Day Noodle & Dumpling Dinner team. He also participated in the Billy Graham Crusades in Columbus in 1993 as an altar counselor.

Dear Sally - I am so sorry to hear of Mark’s passing. I went to Trinity Lutheran Elementary School with Mark. I remember Mark as a rather soft spoken, gentle person who always seemed very caring and concerned about others. I remember the boys in 5th or 6th grade forming a basketball team and the girls cheering for them. Unfortunately I don’t think I saw Mark after leaving Trinity as he went to Fairbanks and I went to Marysville but I will never forget him. May the Lord give you and your family peace and comfort.

Oh, Sally, we are SO sorry to hear of Mark's passing! He and John worked together at Scotts for many years. He and I were classmates at Fairbanks. I will always think of him as kind and a bit shy. God give you peace in knowing that you will see him again someday. Love ever, Susie and John Gamble

So sorry for your lost. We will be praying for comfort during these hard times. I was three years younger than Mark but my brother Darrell Cramer was in his class at Fairbanks. I was an electrician at Scotts and remember seeing Mark. He worked on the West side and I was on the East side. Again, so sorry for your lost.
