Stephen 33, of Carrollton, TX was born April 11, 1978 and passed away
May 7, 2011. Mark attended Mary Immaculate Catholic School and graduated
from Newman Smith High School in 1996. He spent 3 1/2 years in the minor
leagues with the Cleveland Indians Organization as a pitcher and we could
not be more proud.
Our beloved Mark is survived by his father Michael, mother Marlene, grandmother
Edith Cironi, brothers Michael and Matthew Koeth and sisters Monica Fink
and Mary Beth Koeth and countless other family that will miss him greatly.
His contagious laugh, big bright smile, and gentle kind spirit will be
missed dearly and forever remembered.
Mark was quiet and reserved but had a personality that everyone loved
being around. It was an all too early and unexpected loss of a man that
brightened people's lives even when he was not trying to.
Visitation will be held at North Dallas Funeral Home in Farmers Branch
on Thursday, May 12th from 6-8pm. Rosary/Prayer Service at 7pm.
Funeral Services will be held 10am, Friday, May 13th at Mary Immaculate
