Mark Rowe MemorialAaron Rosenthal / Sharon Boyd
In more recent years Mark's recreational passions turned to golf and he pretty much gave up bike riding. Therefore he would not be a familiar face to newer members of the bike club. Mark attended the club's 25-year CSCC Holiday Party in December, 2011, where Bob Smith acknowledged Mark's many contributions to CSCC. Mark greatly enjoyed that night as it allowed him to reconnect with many old friends, reflect on his history as a cyclist and his involvement with CSCC.
Mark mentioned countless times how amazed he was by the number of people who contacted him when they heard of his terminal cancer, which was diagnosed in January, 2012. He was truly taken aback by the outpouring of care and concern. To all of you who reached out in any form and/or kept positive thoughts for Mark, thank you. His life was richer because of your actions.
