Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 20, 1878
Death: Jun. 7, 1937

Served the U.S. Army from May 28, 1918, to June 11, 1919, and then joined the Reserves.
He was an Army doctor and noted urology specialist in the Kansas City area.
Mark and his wife were found dead of poisoning by their 16-year-old daughter on June 1, 1937. A police officer told The Kansas City Star in 1937 that his investigation "gave no indication Dr. and Mrs. Mark had been slain." Although a funeral was held, their ashes were never claimed and the Marks had no near relatives except for their daughter.
His remains were buried July 26, 2011 in a military funeral organized by the Missing in America Project.
