Chason and Daphne Forehand
Mark and his amazing family left a mark on our hearts from the moment we met them. Almost two years ago my husband helped Mark through a heart attack. It was a scary time for all of us, but we were grateful to be there for him and help him through it. Mark was such a kind and generous person, and we felt fortunate to have crossed paths with him. It's hard to put into words the sadness that we feel over his passing. He was a wonderful person who touched many lives, and he will be deeply missed. Please accept our deepest condolences during this difficult time. With heartfelt sympathy, The Forehand Family
Truly the loss of a good friend who shared laughter and thoughts and opinions on his cozy balcony after yet another good meal.. we exchanged recipes for the soul, and history stories yet to be made, with laughter that echoed to the ocean. I will miss the genuine friendship, the camaraderie, the loyalty of a man who knew no atranger and who shared his smile with the world. My heart is heavy, but also very full of all the times remembered.
Some 20 yr. ago I was doing a gig @ Wicked Davey's downtown F.B. I arrived early and did a sound check and headed to the bar for a pint. A couple came in and approached the bar and the gentle man said " Do you think she'll be any good " ? and I replied: "I'm Her" It was Mark & Chris and we've become good friends ever since. They've come to see me in Savannah and even came to visit me in N.S. for a feed of Lobster. I'll Miss Ya Man !
My Sincere Condolences Chris & Family
I met Mark when he came into the salon where I worked. I thought he was such a nice man, and he was. Yes he used to get haircuts. After a few hairs he was talking about his “girlfriend” I was confused because he had told me he was married. So I asked him and he said oh my girlfriend is my wife. So endearing! I will never forget him or his friendship. He was truly a gentleman. I will miss you. Ronda ❤️🎈❤️
He was the absolute best person and an inspiration to everyone who’s met him. He was fun and a great person to have been around. I will miss him very much, I will miss his jokes, laugh, I will never forget my favorite saying if yours “don’t be a baby.” and most of all his dance skills. I will never forget the taste of the food he made and the amount of fun he had making it. I love you poppa.
Mark Timothy Grice
Mark Timothy Grice, 76, passed away on February 7, 2023. A failing heart took him away from this world, but his loving heart left a beacon of light for all.
Mark is survived by his wife “girlfriend” Christine. Their life together took them across the world. They could always be found on the dance floor, walking on the beach, or creating new friendships.
He was born and raised in Wilson, NC, one of seven children, he is preceded in death by Michael, David, and Paul and survived by Mary, Kenneth, and Phillip along with numerous nieces and nephews.
Mark was a loving and devoted father who showed his children Katherine (Mark), Matt, Marielle (David) and Celine (Myron) unconditional love and the joy of shared laughter is something they cherish and share with the world around them.
He was a proud Poppa to Nicole, Matt, Madison, Ava, and Liam. Always the boss of the pizza, Mark loved to cook. He was always up for starting new adventures with them, late night games, showing his dance moves and trying his absolute best to have them share his love of math.
A graduate of Catholic University and Bowie State College, he felt fortunate to retire from the U.S. Census Bureau that would place him in different parts of the world where so many international friendships were made.
Rather than flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the American Heart Association in his memory.
