Mark Raymond Tomasevich
Mark Raymond Tomasevich passed away May 11, 2013 at the age of 69 after a hard fought battle with Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease.
Mark was born on November 22, 1943 to Mark Tomasevich and Merilyn (Beaune) Tomas, both deceased. Mark was the middle of three children. Born in North Hollywood, he moved with his brother to Camas, Washington, in 1959 and lived there for a few years before moving to the Seattle area.
Mark had a love for life and lived it. They say that fishermen have tall tales but you haven’t seen anything until you met a pilot! Mark was good at embellishing stories. He put everything he had into everything he did whether it was work, motor homing, skiing or bicycling. If you worked for him, he stood up for you and you always mattered. He loved to explore and see new places. He was always making friends wherever he went and seemed to know someone everywhere he was. They don’t make them like Mark anymore and he will be missed.
Mark is survived by his wife of 24 years, Diane Tomasevich, his son David Tomasevich (wife Susan Tomasevich) of Henderson, Nevada, son Bradley Sawler of Issaquah, Washington, daughter Stephanie Witt (husband Carl Witt) of Pasco, Washington, grandchildren Hannah and Aidan Witt of Pasco, Washington, brother George R. Tomasevich of Longmont, Colorado, sister Victoria L. Leadon (husband Thomas E. Leadon) of Alexandria, Virginia, nieces Laurette M. Leadon of Mesquite, Texas, Michelle V. Leadon of Alexandria, Virginia, and Adrienne R. Peros (husband Jessie J. Peros) of Ft. Collins, Colorado, and grand-niece Isabella Peros of Ft. Collins, Colorado. Last but not least, his Havanese dog Winston survives Mark. When Mark was at home prior to being placed in assisted living, Winston sat with him night and day while Mark sat and petted him for hours.
