Condolence & Memory Journal

I grew up as a neighbor to the Hamby's. They were awesome. Sharon and I were good friends. Mark wrestled on the team with my younger brother Jimmy. We all had a good time together. Mark was always so sweet, and a bit mischievous (perhaps it was my brother Jimmy's influence!) Rest in peace dear Mark. You blessed a lot of people while on this earth.

Sending prayers to the families of my old high school buddy Mark Hamby. The Hambone!! We sure had lots of good memories growing up and learning about life. He was a character. Very saddened to hear of this news. He was a great athelete on our sports teams, and fast. He will be missed, RIP Mark.

So sorry for your loss. Saddened to hear of Mark"s passing. I have many memories of Mark growing up. He was at our house on a regular basis. He and my brother Randy (Light) hung out together all the time. I will never forget Mark driving his big beast of a truck up the steps of our front porch and breaking the two bottom steps off my mom was not very happy with Mark to say the least.
Thoughts and prayers to the family!

You were a shining light during some very dark days for my brother.

I was so very sorry to hear about Mark. He was very kind to my brother, Ryan. I did not know Mark well, but we did talk several times and I enjoyed having him over for dinner. You were a good man Mark, and you will be missed!
