The world got a little quieter on Saturday evening as we lost an incredible man. Our friend and longtime coworker, Mark Ziliak, passed away from injuries sustained during a motorcycle accident involving a deer as he left work.
The outpouring love for Mark and his family is a true indication of the impact he had and the amount of lives he touched.
He loved a lot of things about life but nothing came close to the love he had for his two boys, Nathan and Ethan, and his beautiful wife Marilyn.
Nathan Ray, 21, started his 4th year at South Dakota School of Mines & Technology in Rapid City, SD on Monday.
Ethan (EZ), 18, started his first year of college at UMD in Duluth, MN on Tuesday.
Mark's passion for design and wrenching in the shop was no doubt passed along to his boys; both are studying Mechanical Engineering.
This GoFundMe has been established to honor Mark, the legacy he leaves and ensure his boys are taken care of. All donations will go directly to Nathan and Ethan's college funds.
In lieu of flowers, please consider supporting his boys.
