Mark was born August 16, 1949 in Chicago, Illinois the son of Jesse and June (Kraus) Ferguson. He grew up in Wisconsin Dells and graduated from Wisconsin Dells High School in 1967 where he was very involved in athletics. He was very proud to be scouted by the Boston Red Sox baseball team.
Mark furthered his education at U.W. Parkside for a teaching degree. His career path changed and he joined his father in construction as an electrician. Eventually he was self- employed in the Chicago area until retirement in 2012. He returned to the Dells area and lived out his dream of his “cabin in the woods”. Dear to his heart was spending time with his loving and devoted family, especially fishing with his son and grandsons.
