Mark Jeffrey Kaltenbaugh, 65, peacefully passed away in the comfort of his own home in Mississippi, on January 30th, 2018. Mark was the proud, unconditionally loving husband to Willow Kaltenbaugh. To the very end of his time he continuously and whole heartedly showed to all that Willow was his strength, determination, his very reason to live. Born January 1, 1953, in Johnstown, Pa. Mark was the 2nd of 6 children born to Peter and the Beautiful Loving , Grace Kaltenbaugh. Proceeded in death by his father Peter Kaltenbaugh Sr., his Uncle Daniel Kaltenbaugh, and many friends and family. Survived and forever carried on by his soulmate Willow, their 3 beautiful children Shonna, Matthew, and Luke. Grandchildren: Adian, Ava, Tristen, and Josie. Brother. Peter and 4 lovely sisters: Coleen, Iris, Lisa, and Anita. To others he was not seen as a son,brother, husband, or father, but as a funny, smart, strong, trustworthy, heck of a good time friend. Many hearts and souls throughout his life were touched and forever changed by the gift of Marks friendship, loyalty, and charismatic energy. Mark was an honest, hardworking, family man with strong values, who not only lived to cherish his family, but also cherished the small things in life. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, crab boils, and maintaining his countryside homestead, and had a distinct and brilliant love for music. Marks final wish: To have His ashes returned to his favorite part of PA. No service will be held, but a reunion/ celebration of life will be scheduled sometime in May or June in Pa. For those who had the honor of knowing Mark would already know he would not accept any donations on his behalf. If you feel the need to wanna help, you may donate to Brain cancer research. The essence of his soul amongst the world will never be forgotten or dismissed, for we all are forever blessed through him.
