Minnich, Mark S.

Mark S. Minnich, 65, of Lorain, passed away April 23,  2020 at his home following a long illness.  He is survived by his children,  Rebecca L. Barlow (Brent Willis), Morgan C., (Lisa Fleming), Joshua Predmore,  Meghan E., Stephen A.; and ex-wife Beverly J.   Mark was the second youngest of 11 siblings, as and he would argue, the most handsome.  He is survived by siblings Carolyn, Ruth, Bruce, Mary Alice, Daniel, Paul and a host of nieces, nephews and extended family. He is loved by his 9 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Mark was preceded in death by his parents,  Charles Sr and Helen Minnich,  his siblings Jeannene, Charles Jr., David, Gerard “Michael” and grandson Brent Willis II.

Mark was born in Lorain, OH and lived there most of his life.  He served in the Navy and was retired from the City of Lorain. He enjoyed all sports, but basketball was always his favorite. He loved any time spent with his family and cherished all memories with them. Mark also dearly loved his pets, Brandi and George.

The family will hold a private memorial service to celebrate his life at a future date.  We ask that in lieu of flowers any donations be made to the Lorain County Metro Parks.

  3. I was fortunate to watch his youngest two children and I remember he was such a kind man and friend and easy to have conversations with. I was always in awe of how many projects he would complete and how involved he was with his family and community. Sending many more prayers.
