Tribute and Memory for a Great Warrior - Mark Kuzinski

Join me in celebrating Mark’s life!


My very close friend and veteran SP5 Mark Kuzinski from Hartland, MI passed suddenly on Monday during one of his favorite past times - riding his bicycle.

It’s outstanding leaders like ‘Mark’ that will be missed. Thank you, ‘Mark’, for your outstanding service in the Army and to this country as a Construction Surveyor from Feb 1966 to Dec 1968.

Mark leaves behind his wife Diana and his three boys Adam, Cory, and Brett. Adam (and his wife Jill) and grandchildren Alena and Brady; Cory (and his wife Christine) and grandchildren Kiera and Cael; Brett (and his wife Ang) and their grandchild due to arrive in October of this year.


"What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why Mark left this earth so soon or suddenly; or why Mark left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we all will begin to remember not just that Mark died, but that he lived, he was our veteran brother, influencer, gentleman, grandfather, father to Adam, Cory, and Brett, and husband to Diana. And that Mark’s life gave us memories too beautiful to forget." Rest in peace brother Mark. We’re looking up to you my friend and you’re looking down on us every day from Heaven. Until we meet again Mark – we celebrate your life and how much you ment to all of us. I will hold close the memory when we first met in Detroit, MI four years ago and when we broke bread three weeks ago here in Castle Rock, CO.”
