Shaw & Sons Funeral Home
Mark Christopher St. George, 52, died at his home on November 10, 2021. Mark was born in Yakima, Washington on October 21, 1969. He was the youngest of three children to his parents Merv and Peg St. George. He spent his early years in Washington and Alaska, where he attended Selah, Soldotna, and Highland high schools.
Mark has worked for several employers over the years, but found his calling as a service writer in 2015. He was natural and made a name for himself in Yakima, being sought after by many auto repair shops and dealerships. He had recently started working for Valley Ford and felt out of place.
One of his greatest achievements in life was becoming a father to his three daughters, Dominique, Kelsee and Emily. He was a superhero to them, better known as the socks and sandals guy and daddy master of jokes. He made sure their mother tongue was sarcasm. Mark had the best musical tastes and enjoyed going to concerts with them, the girls’ personal security guard if the crowd got too crazy. He never had to discipline with an iron fist, just a really big sigh. He could be harsh with his father’s voice, but Emily best described it as a big hug. He gave THE BEST HUGGETS EVER! He was very proud of them and would do absolutely anything for them, even if it meant walking across state to help with a broken car.
Mark met Mindi in 2011 through a mutual friend, then they were inseparable. The jokes inside and inappropriate humor were the basis of their relationship. They were truly soul mates. They tied the knot on January 1, 2016 in a brief outdoor ceremony in 21-degree weather. He was an amazing husband, loving and very protective of Mindi.
Mark loved adventure. He and Mindi liked to jump in the car and go anywhere at any time. He was in charge of the music of their travels, playing the soundtrack of their lives. He always had a camera with him and was an amazing photographer. He was also passionate about firearms. An exceptional sniper who loved to share his gift by teaching others. He made those around him feel safe. He loved skiing and was a daredevil, always trying to beat his own personal speed record. He especially liked to put his ski buddy, Kim, in danger.
Mark is survived by his wife Mindi, his father Merv St. George, his brother Tony St. George, his sister Tristy Morrison, his daughters Dominique, Kelsee and Emily, his grandchildren Logan and Dahlia, his extended family, many better friends and his Siberian Husky Kenai.
