Mark Daniel Harmon was born on March 6, 1984 in Rolla, Missouri. He went peacefully in his sleep on December 16, 2020 at the age of 36 years, 9 months and 10 days. He accepted Jesus as a child and now he is with his Heavenly Father. Mark was his own person and he lived by the beat of his own drum. He loved music and in 2014, he created MoRoots music festival to bring people together through his love of music. Mark overcame many obstacles throughout his life but he never complained, never gave up hope and never let it get him down. He lived life to the fullest that he possibly could. Mark was special to many people, but one in particular was Lucy or Goose, as he would call her. She was like the child he never had. He loved all of his nieces and nephews and thought each one was special.
