Read more about the life story of Mark and share your memory.
Mark Alexander Palasch was born May 22, 1946 in Philadelphia Pennsylvania to Virginia Martin and George Palasch. He went on to be with his Lord and Savior Yeshua on July 2, 2023 in Emmett, Idaho. Mark is survived by his wife, Sherry Ann Lewis; his three daughters, Stephanie, Jenny, Danielle and a son, Phillip. As well as stepchildren and many grandchildren.
Mark often reminisced about his childhood and being brought up near the Jersey shore. He always said he had a great childhood being raised by his grandmom, his father’s mother. He remembered having lots of love between his aunts and uncles. They would all meet often at grandmoms for family meals and he got to play with his cousins. Mark graduated at the largest high school in Philadelphia at that time. He had some great friends he kept in touch with; always trying to spend time at his favorite place, Ocean City, New Jersey.
Mark was 20 years old when he signed up for duty in the Marines. His military legend had the dates September 1965 to September 1971. He was honored with the rifleman sharpshooter badge, that was a highlight of his life and he was honored and proud to serve.
Mark enjoyed his work in the trades National Boiler Makers of America, iron workers and pipefitters associations where he said he never had a bad job, although chasing the work did make it hard on family life. He was not a complainer, and his motto was like the song "let your words be few". Really, he was not for much chatter but he did enjoy hearing others tell their stories. How did mark end up in Idaho you may ask, well that is a different story altogether.
His faith and walk with the Lord began at the age of 18, where he tells of his experience of speaking in the heavenly language of the holy spirit as explained in the bible. He said that was his born again experience that Jesus spoke of when he said "to enter into the heavenly kingdom, you must be born again". Later, sometime in his life he was connected with the Messianic Jewish believers of Philadelphia. Mark did work out his faith in support and sharing, worth noting he brought several people to baptism. Near the end he did mention" I wish I had done more". Our benefit was knowing Mark as it seems a short time, but he will surely be missed.
