Mark was born on April 27, 1956 in Park Falls to Donald Dailey of Superior and Lucille (LaBerge) Dailey of Winter, Wis.
Mark attended the University of Wisconsin-Stout where he trained in the field of screen printing. He worked as an independent screen printer for a number of years and later joined forces with Chromaline, an Ikonics Company, where he worked as a Technical Sales Representative for 16 years.
Family, friends and his work were Mark’s passions. He was a kind and thoughtful man who valued the people and things that he held dear. He was an avid golf enthusiast and Packers fan. He enjoyed his guitars and was known for his skill with a barbecue grill.
A lifelong resident of Superior, Mark married the love of his life, Tammi (Sather), on Sept. 17, 1983 and chose Superior to raise his son, Alex. A wonderful family man, he enjoyed the simple pleasures of family and home and particularly his summers at Crystal Lake where he and his family regularly vacationed for over 20 years.
