Mark and I were lifelong friends. It was an honor having Mark in our wedding, plus hunting and fishing together most of our lives. Our Superior Softball Team memories are special highlights together. He was a great shortstop! Mark was a fantastic outside and inside sales person and his customer service skills were exceptional. He was with us at Superior/North Woods for 3 decades. Many a fun time was had along Lake Michigan and the man made lake with all the “Black River Rats”! Mark was an excellent musician and was very spiritual. You will be dearly missed but always remembered my friend. May you rest in God’s heavenly arms. My deepest sympathies to the entire Gruenke Family. May God bless all of you. Love always, Terry, Denise, and the entire Schaller Family.
