1956 MARK 2023


April 3, 1956 — December 17, 2023

Mark Anthony Owens, born on April 3, 1956, in the vibrant city of New Orleans, has left us on December 17, 2023. Mark's departure leaves a void that will never be filled; his kind soul and unwavering dedication to helping others will forever echo in our hearts.

Mark was an exceptional individual who radiated an infectious warmth and genuine compassion towards everyone he encountered. His education journey began at Booker T. Washington, where he laid the foundation for a life full of learning and personal growth. Mark's thirst for knowledge and understanding was a testament to his intellectual curiosity and commitment to self-improvement.

What truly set Mark apart was his unwavering devotion to making a positive impact on the lives of those around him. He possessed an innate ability to empathize with others, especially children and the elderly, whose struggles became his own. His boundless generosity knew no bounds; he would go above and beyond to help anyone in need without hesitation or seeking recognition.

However, behind this selfless exterior was a man who took pleasure in the simplest joys of life. Mark believed that happiness could be found in the ordinary moments we often take for granted. Whether it was witnessing the smile of a child as they learned something new or lending an ear to an elder recounting tales from their youth, Mark cherished these instances as pure gold.

In his family circle, Mark's presence will be dearly missed but forever treasured. Delores Owens, his beloved mother, Burnes Owens, his brother, and John Robertson Jr., his father mourn his loss with heavy hearts. Alongside them stands Tony Owens, his sister; Stanley Owens, his brother; Louis Gipson, his uncle; and Marcus Allen, his son.

Mark's memory will live on through the impact he had on countless lives throughout his journey. His legacy of kindness and compassion will continue to inspire generations yet to come. Each act of kindness that we extend to others in honor of Mark will ensure that his spirit thrives and touches the lives of those who need it most.

As we bid farewell to this extraordinary soul, let us reflect on the invaluable lessons he leaves behind. Let us be reminded that even the smallest acts of kindness can create ripples that transform the world around us. May Mark Anthony Owens find eternal solace, and may his light continue to illuminate our paths as we strive to follow in his selfless footsteps.

In loving memory of Mark Anthony Owens, we celebrate a life well-lived—a life that exemplified compassion, generosity, and unwavering love for humanity. Rest in peace, dear friend, until we meet again in the realm beyond.
