Mark was lovingly dedicated to his wife and family. His faith in Jesus Christ was deep and central to his life, as was sharing the message of salvation with others. He served as an Elder with Passion Church and was very passionate about helping others, a trait that he carried into his work with the Quad Cities Prayer Center, Wellsprings Of Freedom and the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center.
Mark enjoyed traveling, particularly being in the mountains, watching NASCAR races and especially spending special times with his family and friends.
He is lovingly remembered by his wife, Judy; children Jody Lynn Dalmeida and her husband, Steve, of Surprise, Arizona and Jeffrey Lorenz and his partner, Brad Travis, of Morrisville, North Carolina; grandchildren Grant Freeborn; Chasity Musal and her husband, Jason; Steven, Jessica and Patty Dalmeida; brothers Darrell (Sharon) Iossi of Bettendorf, Iowa and Ron (Diana) Iossi of Maysville, Iowa; numerous nieces and nephews with whom he was very close; and Chandra McLain and her daughter Olivia Terronez, of Davenport, Iowa, who are a special part of the family. Mark was preceded in death by his parents.
