Wouldn’t want to fix him as a person. All tho we all have our demons that we battle. I know how he struggled but I got to say no matter how hard it was or how many times he may of went back to it. I can say I was proud of him Cuz he never gave up no matter how many times he tried to straighten up. And how many failures he still kept a determination to not give up trying to get better! My heart hurts and I can’t believe he’s truly gone. But his battle is over now. And I pray that he is in a better place and at peace. I love him and will miss him so much!

    Dear family of Mark I am offering my sincere condolences to all of you. Mark was such a sweet sweet soul. I was shocked of this news and very sad. We were all together the weekend before and had a wonderful time. He introduced us to one of his favorite bands before our concert that night and to his new friends from Minnesota. I was looking forward to his visit to our house in Mn and wanted him to cook me some good food and me cook for him. I wanted him to teach me how to make a good gravy as he put it but we call it sauce lol. He kept joking all weekend I’m with The Schwartz’s. He wàs happy n safe all weekend and had a huge smile on his face. Till we meet again Buzz Light Year we will miss you!

  9. George Perez condolence:

    I’ve been friends with Mark since freshman year in high school and we had many adventures and great times together. We would often play guitar together performing at small bars or just on our own showing each other new songs. We also went skiing several times among other things and he was a better skiier than I was. We did so many fun things that I can’t list then all. He was a good friend and a kind person. Everybody who knew him will miss him tremendously. My deepest sympathies.

    Dear Buzzelli family and friends, I want to express my sincere condolences for the loss of Mark.

    He was a great friend, one of mine for the past 30+ years. Though I moved out west many years ago, he remained a friend and we had been in touch recently. He was a kind, gentle person with a lot of love in his heart for his friends, and he gave us the gift of music which I’ll always remember.

    I received this news with great sadness but his memory will always bring a smile to my face and heart.

    Fly high friend, I’m know you’re out there looking out over us and we will meet again. ❤️

    With love,


Please share your thoughts ...
