Very sorry to hear about Mark’s far too early passing. I worked extensively for a while with Mark when he was at DISA HQ, and spent a lot of time TDY with him. He was a superior colleague and an excellent friend. I can’t put into words how sorry I am for your loss.
He will be missed.
My sincere condolences, Mark was a great man, he mentored me when we worked together at DISA Sky 7 in Falls Church, VA. Our prayers are with you during this time of sadness.
I am sorry for the loss of your husband, father, son. It is never easy to lose a loved one. This is not what God intended and we look forward to the day when He will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more. (Revelation 21:4)
May you find comfort in the Bible’s message of hope.
I was so sorry to hear about Mark yesterday at work. Please know that my prayers are with you and your daughter at this time. Mark was almost larger than life and I know we are all going to miss him.
My sincere sympathy
I am still in shock and very saddened by Mark’s passing. It’s hard to believe, just talked to him before I went on vacation.
I am so sorry, I am sure you have plenty of family and friends supporting you, but please let me know if you need anything. I am no stranger to loss, my heart goes out to you and Helen. I will add you to my prayers for strength, courage and understanding.
Love always, Colleen
Please, accept my deepest condolences; Mark was a dear friend.
May God give you and the family the strength needed to deal with the loss.

I am very sorry for your loss. It can be hard for friends and family to find the right words to say at a time like this. Thankfully, we can echo the comforting words that we read in the Bible. At Revelation 21:4 it tells us that the God of all comfort will soon do away with all suffering, sickness, tears, and death. Along with what we read at John 5:28, 29 we have a solid hope for the future. Until then, may your loving memories bring you relief during this difficult time. Your family has my sincerest condolences.
With sincere sympathy. Michelle Cosner, DISA (Ft Meade, MD).
Dear Joan & Ann, It’s with a sad heart that I write a message to you both. Mark & I met at the reception of a wedding we both attended when I lived in Kettering Ohio during my college years. I had dated Mark in 1978-1980, I recall being part of your family during that brief time and the both of you were very important to Mark then, as I am sure that is probably still the case. I am sure you both will miss him tremendously. He was for me one of the nicest men I had a relationship with during that point in my life. I missed him then & I will never get to tell him that now. You have my deepest sympathy, love, and respect in your loss. I remember a man that was full of life, with fun loving spirit, and full of zest for having a good time with family & friends. I am sure you will miss him. Love, Jennifer (McFarland) Manson.
So sorry for your loss. You have my Condolences. Really enjoyed working with Mark for many years at Langley and DISA in the Red Switch program. Will never forget him as a friend and co-worker.
It was a shock to get the notification of Mark’s passing. I have fond memories of working with Mark for many years at DISA on the Defense Red Switch Network before his move to Ohio. My deepest condolences to the family.
Mark worked within our team at DISA HQS, He will truly be missed. I replaced Mark at DISA HQS when he left for the DISA DECC in Ohio.
I pray God send comfort and peace to the Boeck family during this time.
So very sorry for your loss.
