Mark A. Mischker, 64, passed away Tuesday, March 11, 2014. Mark was born in Milwaukee, WI on March 8, 1950.
He was a Marine Corps Captain in Vietnam, flying C 130 planes. He was a broker for Dean Witter and Senior Vice President of First Interstate Bank in Denver, CO. His greatest joy in life was flying international routes as an Airline Captain for Frontier Airlines, Pan Am and Delta. He was Chairman of the Retirement and Investments Committee for Delta Pilots for many years and was active on the board of the Airline Pilots Association. He enjoyed doing union work for over 20 years.
Mark leaves his beloved wife, Sharon, who was his “bride” for 44 years; his sons, Erik Mischker and Ryan Mischker; daughter-in-law, Ann Elise Mischker; his grandchildren, Baeta, Maggie, Grace and Ellie; and his parents, Ralph and Nina Mischker.
He was preceded in death by his brother, Bruce Mischker and sister, Nancy Mischker.
With great love, Mark always referred to Sharon as his “bride”. He was “Poppy” to his adored ballerinas, as he called his four granddaughters; he loved being “Poppy”.
Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of
Where never lark or even eagle flew
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
