Obituary for Mark Alan Crossley
Mark A. Crossley, age 54 passed away peacefully with his loved ones at his bedside after a courageous battle fighting pancreatic cancer. We know his is with our Lord in Heaven.
He was born in The Dalles, OR to Art & Sheila Crossley. He grew up Albany, OR, graduating from West Albany High & OSU. He married Annette Rentz in 1987 & moved to Keizer in 1990. They have two amazing children, Corey & Katie, whom he loved more than anything. Mark loved his family unconditionally, always putting Annette & the kids first above himself. He loved spending time with them & playing golf. He worked at Loren Berg Chevrolet in Newberg for 15 years up until becoming ill last year. He loved working with Loren and his co-workers. We all miss him immensely.
Mark is survived by his wife, Annette; children, Corey and Katie; mother Sheila Crossley and father Art Crossley (Mary Jo); brothers Mitch Crossley (Linda), Mike Crossley (Cari); brother in law Scott Ciprian (Meg); sister in law Lisa Rentz Upex; nieces & nephews & many friends.
I want to thank my employers & fellow co-workers at Hope Orthopedics for giving me the gift of time so I could be home with him. I can't express enough how much he & I appreciated how amazingly understanding everyone has been. I am forever grateful.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 4 p.m. on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at New Harvest Church in Salem, with a reception following.
