Mark was born on April 25, 1958 to Robert and June (Crandalle) Barbian in Milwaukee, WI. Mark married Judy Meyers on April 19, 1995 in Adams-Friendship, WI. They were blessed with 23 years of marriage. He worked for Appleton Electric as a foundry worker for several years.
He was the most loving and strong willed, stubborn man they knew. Mark truly loved and was deeply devoted to his family; he was always there when they needed him. He enjoyed going camping especially on the Bark River. One of his favorite things was getting together with his family on the 4th of July and having a bonfire, where he would tease and play jokes on everyone. Mark’s children and grandchildren were the light of his life and he cherished spending time with them.
Mark also enjoyed playing a good game of cards, including sheep’s head and cribbage. You could also catch him playing a game of darts, or pool. He was an avid Packer fan and would always cheer on his team no matter if they made the playoffs or not.
Mark is survived by his loving wife, Judy; four children: Bruce (Stephine), Joey (Amy), Brenda (Bill), and Leo (Kristin);12 grandchildren: Tessa, Lannie, Josiah, Wess, Addy, Steven, Jacob, Ava, Ashlee, Ivy, Olyvia, and Everly; seven siblings: Robert (Jan), Pam (Gary), Todd (Kim), Danny, Eileen, Patti (Jerry), and Martha (Craig); seven in-laws: Nancy,Karen,Bill,Chuck,Joanne,Sally,Penny and their spouses, as well as many nieces and nephews.
