Mr. Mark F. Gill, age 73, a longtime resident of Imlay City passed away Sunday, May 26, 2024, surrounded by his loving family. He was born November 10, 1950, the son of Douglas and Phyllis (Hyslop) Gill in Detroit. He graduated from Cousino High School in 1969 where he won awards in swimming, track and cross country. Mark married his beloved wife Judith Kitchen on July 25, 1970, in Warren. He graduated from Lawrence Technological University where, he received his Structural Engineering degree. He worked at the General Motors Powertrain Plant and retired in 2008 after nearly 40 years. With his engineering mind, Mark had solutions to problems you didn’t even know you had.

Mark found happiness in fixing different things including his grandchildren’s toys. Mark rebuilt his Ford 8-N and Moline tractors. He liked to paint and attended Bob Ross Painting Classes with his sister and grandchildren. He was a great tennis partner and coach to his children and grandchildren. He grew pumpkins every year for his grandchildren where they would ride the wagon out to the patch to pick their perfect Halloween pumpkin. Mark was a huge supporter of his children and grandchildren. If he wasn’t helping coach on the baseball diamond, he was volunteering as Scoutmaster or he was working with the Band Boosters. More than anything Mark loved his time with family.

Mark is survived by his beloved wife Judith, loving children Brendan (Tatianna) Gill of Arkansas, Ryan (Shea) Gill of Memphis; beloved grandchildren Keegan, Reese, Lucas, Vivian, Adrianna, Alexander, Ainslee and Joey. Also surviving are his siblings, Linda (Raymond) Hartsig of Macomb and Scott (Gina) Gill of Shelby Twp.
