I just heard of Marks passing a few days ago. My prayers and thoughts are with you at this difficult time. I also just lost my beloved father about month ago. I met Mark over twenty years ago in the military and boy could he talk and what a great sense of humor he had. He will be missed. I know he loved his family. God bless!

Mark was a beautiful person who will be missed by so many. Our families go back a long way. My parents and his parents were close friends for many years. We both served in the Air Force. Mark was a good family man. May the Lord continually strengthen each one during this time of loss. I know Mark is in a better place.

I still remember when we hired Mark at the Post Office in Lansing. He was always so full of smiles & witty conversation when he would stop by to see all of us in Personnel. And whenever we needed him-he was there & got the job done. He prided himself in a job well done. Just saw Mark a few months ago in Krogers & he was still full of those smiles & wit. My thoughts & prayers to his family at this very sad time. I'm sure Mark is entertaining everyone in heaven!

I worked with Mark at the Postal Service in Saginaw. I can't think of a nicer or more caring person than he was. May God bless and comfort his loved ones during this time of grief, and for ever more.

I can remember a little boy running to catch up with his big brother and sister--"I'm coming, too!" The laughter and that huge smile when he was happy. I remember seeing the gentle giant of a man you became, and being so proud of that man. You will be missed, but we all have numerous memories to carry us through the dark times that come. These memories will brighten any dark corner. Rest in peace, Mark. Our Lord and Savior will continue to take care of your family and your friends.

I'm still in awe. My uncle was my friend. I could talk to him about anything anyway. I could be me.. It's hard. He loved his family and we love him.

I've known Mark since 1994. He was like a brother to me. We worked together, talked sports, politics, work and family. He was a Wolverine fan and I was a Spartan fan. He helped me with my computer. He is and always will be my baby brother. Love you Mark and we will miss you. Heart felt wishes to Melissa and his kids and family.

To the Wadley family, my heart is heavy for a family I've known since we moved on Whitter Street in the early 60's. Our house was back to back to each other back yards. I've know how he was feeling when he lost one of his sisters n he always talked about how he miss Gail. Now he is with his love ones just flowing around n watching over his wife, kids and the rest of his love ones. I will always remember how Mark used to lifted me up on FB with his music and playing games. Those who really know the Wadley family, they are close and lovable toward their families and friends. I wish I was there to comfort the rest of his family. But I'm sure my family will be over their to show their respect to his family. PS. His oldest brother showed me how to draw by just looking at a blank paper n image I could see Star Track on a blank paper. He e was so talent. Some things I took it to my heart n never forgot what his big brother showed me as a young girl going to jessie loomis elementary school wih Gail. Mark can now enjoy his family until God call us all home. Love y'all n May God comfort the whole family. I'm praying for the Humes family also. I know this family is very large.
