We would like send our condolences to the Dawson Family. I have recently worked with Mark on GNC jobs in Michigan. He was a very nice man and well respected. I was very sadden to hear about his passing.

I worked with Mark on many projects when I was at GNC and count as a friend and one of most humble and thoughtful people I have met my heartfelt sympathy to his family
