Mark McCaskill

December 24, 1961 — December 24, 2021

McCASKILL – Russell Mark, Fraser, Michigan; gained his wings after a battle with covid on his 60th birthday December 24, 2021, at Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital, Warren, Michigan. Born December 24, 1961, in Cape Girardeau, Missouri; son of the late Dr. William Russell and Beverly June (Shupert) McCaskill.

Survived by wife his of 20 years, Janet L. (Wright) McCaskill; dear friends, Caty and Michelle Ward; and fur kids, Sheba and Roscoe, all of Fraser; father and mother-in-law, Earl and Nancy (Coleman) Wright; brothers-in law, John and Joseph (Lori) Wright; nieces, Nicole and Gracie Wright, all of Summerhill; aunt, Jeannette Rank (Gilbert), Jefferson City, Missouri; cousin, Bo Baker, Jefferson City, Missouri; Brothers in Christ, Jeffrey K. Smith, Southaven, Mississippi; and Scott (Angela) Branum, Kennett, Missouri; and friends too numerous to share.

His zest for life brought laughter and joy for those that knew him. He was a lover of food and fun. He loved to laugh, play pranks, and thought nothing of driving hours away for a delicious sandwich, burger or dessert. His compassion to rescue or adopt animals showed his kind and unselfish generosity. He enjoyed the simple things in life. Sports were a passion of his, especially football and baseball. He loved the Kansas City Chiefs, St. Louis Cardinals and University of Missouri Tigers. Since, moving to Michigan, he also followed the Detroit Tigers and Lions. He had an uncanny ability to succeed on a casino trip and was a rain man with his mathematical gift. Throughout the years, Mark managed and owned a record store, arcade, sandwich shop, ice cream parlor, dollar store and Dreamland Waterbeds. Music was a driving force in Mark’s life. He always had music playing, regardless of what he was doing. But most of all, he loved his friends and family.
