Mark L. Fewkes

Mark L. Fewkes, 65, passed away Aug. 5, 2016. He passed peacefully surrounded by his wife, daughters, son and two granddaughters.  

Mark was born to Lyle and Sadie Fewkes in Salt Lake City. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He graduated from Granite High School in Salt Lake City and moved to Green River in 1974. Mark retired from Tata Chemicals as a mechanic after 33 years of employment.

Mark married Stephanie Fewkes June 13, 1970, in Midvale, Utah. They shared 46 years together and had five children, 15 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren together.  They first held hands when he was 17 and she was 15 and they never stopped. They were hand and hand when he passed.

Mark spent his free time with his family camping, hunting, fishing and boating. He was happiest in the mountains or at the Flaming Gorge, where he taught his children, grandchildren and nephews to hunt and fish. 

Mark was always the adventurer and always had at least of a couple of his children or grandchildren with him on his outdoor adventures.

Mark was forever the tease and "The Joker" of his friends and family.  He loved to make people laugh. He had a laugh that will not be forgotten or the way he loudly clapped his hands when he found something to be really funny.  

He was survived by his wife Stephanie Fewkes of Green River, four daughters and their spouses; Kimberly and Darnell McQuitty of Green River,  Marci and Bill Mogen of Vernal, Utah, Carrie Cudney and Jack Toomey of Green River, daughter Jennifer Fewkes of Rock Springs, and son Clayton Fewkes of Green River; grandchildren James Greene, Anthony Greene, Trenton Greene, Trey McQuitty, Mandy and Chris Page, Dallas Mogen, Anna Mogen, Alexis Kelly, Amanda Mogen, Miranda Mogen, Dawson Kunz, Dalton Kunz, Deleani Kunz, Dannika Kunz, Jordan Smothers; five great-grandchildren, nephews, nieces and many people he loved like family.

Mark was preceded in death by his parents Lyle and Sadie Fewkes, sister Vana Young, in-laws Keith and Leola Caldwell and great-grandson Braydon Vanzant.

Services will be held at noon Saturday at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Green River. Visitation will be from 11a.m. to 11:45 a.m. at the church.

Interment will take place in the Riverview Cemetery, followed with a celebration of life luncheon at 2:30 p.m.
