Mark Brian "Tiny" Stein

Mark Brian “Tiny” Stein, 54, of Quanicassee, our loving, family-oriented, and devoted husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend was born into eternal life on the afternoon of Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at his home, surrounded by his family. Mark was born in Bay City on June 26,1963, the son of Bernard and Deloris (Westover) Stein.  Mark met the love of his life and soul mate early on, the former LeeAnn Marie Naert. The two grew up together and Mark always made sure no one messed with LeeAnn. They started dating on Valentine’s Day in 1989, fell in love, and were united in marriage on September 12, 1992. Their marriage was blessed with 25 years this year, two beautiful daughters, who were the light of his life, and countless memories.  In his younger years, Mark enjoyed going on vacations with his siblings and to the local dairy bar every night for ice cream or a soda with his mom and dad. He attended Akron-Fairgrove and went on to be a dedicated Farmer. Mark was a Hog Farmer from 1981 until his retirement in 2015, but continued as a crop farmer all the way until this past spring; cultivating soy beans, corn, and wheat. Mark was a dedicated parishioner of Our Lady of Czestochowa Parish (St. Stanislaus Kostka Church) and a lifelong member of the Gateway Sportsman Club, where Mark was the top shooter for several years in a row. Tiny continued to shoot until June of this year. Tiny loved having parties and being the grill master that he is, made sure no one ever went hungry. He also enjoyed trap shooting, playing poker with the boys at the Gateway Club, hunting, watching his Green Bay Packers, and Nascar. Mark loved taking day trips with his family, going to country concerts, and made sure to never miss a game that his girls played in.  Mark leaves to cherish his memory, his wife and soul mate, LeeAnn; their two daughters, Holly Elizabeth and Marlee Jo; siblings, Thomas (Dawn) Stein, Sheryl (Curtis) Burza, and Barbara (John) Horton; nieces and nephews, Susan (Kerry) Bader, Carolyn (Phil) Mulloy, Michael (Shelly) Burza, Corey (Kelsie) Burza, Annie North, John Horton, Joshua Naert, and Kaitlynn Naert; great-nieces and nephews, Meghan, Zakkary, and Ava Bader, Adain, Iain, Emilia,  and Annabelle Mulloy, Danae and Danielle Hartman, Nicole Parker, Mason and Alayna North, and Brenton Horton; father-in-law and mother-in-law, James and Helen Naert; brother-in-law, Jeff (Tracey) Naert, along with many, many friends.
