It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mark Andrew Bednar on March 4, 2022 at the age of 54, in his home in Avon Lake, Ohio. He was surrounded by loved ones up until the end. During his four year battle with gastrointestinal cancer he was the symbol of strength and determination.

He spent 15 years working as a Landscaping Foreman for ForeverGreen Lawn Care before he went on to start his own landscaping company. He will always be remembered for his hard work ethic and love for Ultima Online, LEGO®, and sports.
He was preceded in death by one brother, Adam Bednar-Rainey. He leaves behind the love of his life and wife of 23 years, Jaime Bednar. Four children, Kristen Ingram (Colin), Tiffanie Bednar (Adrian), Michael Bednar (Deona), and Hope Bednar. A brother and best friend, Matthew Bednar. Six grandchildren, Chase, Violet, Alexis, Izabella, Isaac, and Juliet. Several nieces and nephews along with his faithful companion cat, Rocky.
