Mark Neil Brown passed away at the age of 56 on Tuesday, November 12th 2019.
Mark was born on March 26, 1963 in Mesa AZ to Raymond Neil and Mary Jane Brown. He raised two daughters, Devan and Sarah.
Mark began his 40 year career with Honda as a lot attendant at Honda Cars of Mesa at the age of 15. He received training to become a certified Honda technician, and he shared his expertise and skill while holding several foreman and management positions over the course of his career. His coworkers described him as a friendly straight-shooter who was always willing to help.
Mark was happiest outdoors, and had a lifelong love of hunting, fishing and camping. He loved shooting, and especially enjoyed reloading his own ammunition as a hobby. Mark always looked forward to camping out for NASCAR races twice per year with a group of his close friends, describing their “boys camp” as an almost sacred place guaranteed to be hilarious and memorable.

He is survived by his sister Shellie (Scott) Irwin, daughters Devan (Ashley) Davis and Sarah (Jacob) Petersen, grandchildren Kimball, Wesley and Owen Petersen and Elliott and Harper Davis, nephew Cameron (Shelby) Irwin, great-niece Scarlett Irwin and niece Cassidy Irwin.
