Mark was born on March 1, 1959, to James and Myra (Meeves) Wittrock in Carroll, Iowa. He got his GED while in the service and married Karen Patrick on April 20, 2007, in Winfield.

He loved kids and dogs and was a regular donor to the Kansas Humane Society and the Cowley County Humane Society. He will be remembered as a loving and caring man and even sometimes as Santa Claus around town.
