Our stupendous Mark E. Cragun returned home to his Heavenly Father on
September 11, 2010 after an extended illness and valiant battle.  Mark
was born October 15, 1974 to Brent and Genie Cragun.  He loved being
raised in Morgan.  He found joy in soccer, school council and
scouting; earning his eagle scout award (motivated by a reward of
being able to use his driver’s license.)  Mark served a full-time
mission to Tampico, Mexico.  There he shared the gospel with people he
had come to love so much.  Upon returning home, he attended Weber
State University.  On December 8, 2001 he was sealed to his
sweetheart, Hillari Rock in the Bountiful, UT temple.  Later, Mark
attended wood badge and was an admired Scout Master.   One of his
greatest joys was teaching boys how to be men and watching them serve

Mark leaves behind his loving wife Hillari, three beautiful children:
Miyuki, Montana, and Niyah, his parents Brent and Genie (Mountain
Green), eight siblings: Troy, Tammy (Don), Mike (Kristen), Dan
(Colleen), Ryan (Debi), Katie (Kevin), Josh (Jessica), Wendy (Mario),
and a truck load of nieces and nephews that he loved to tickle and
stuff with candy.

He was preceded in death by his close friends Steve, Maury, and John.
Mark loved adventure: water-skiing, sky-diving, motorcycles,
scuba-diving and anything outdoors.
