Mark Wilson passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of July 18 after an 18-month battle with post-COVID 19 lung disease.
Mark was born on Oct. 31, 1956, and always said that he loved having his birthday on Halloween. He got to go trick-or-treating to get lots of candy and then come home for his birthday party, cake and presents.
A proud graduate of South Garland High School, he attended Texas Tech University and pledged Delta Sigma Phi fraternity. He graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1981 with a degree in journalism.
