Mark Alan Engelmann was born August 9, 1966, in Miami, Fla., the son of Ernst Engelmann and Barbara Eddleman Engelmann. He was a graduate of Miami-Dade High School and worked with Archtrans, a Division of Archbold Medical Center. Prior to joining the Archbold team, he owned Domino’s Pizza in Thomasville, for many years. Mark was an active member of The Gathering in Thomasville.

Mark had a true servant’s heart and found his calling in helping others. His service to the Lord included giving of himself at work, in his ministry at “The Word Doers” and anywhere else he saw a need. Mark was instrumental in beginning the Thanksgiving Meal program in Thomasville. He was active in the Tres Dias and Kairos Community where he served often at Autry State Prison. Mark would be quick to point out that Jesus is the Light of the World and his daughter, Madison, was the light of his life.

Survivors include his wife, Tanya Faircloth Engelmann; his daughter, Madison Engelmann of Colquitt; his parents, Ernst and Barbara Engelmann; and his siblings, Eric Engelmann and his wife, Sue, of Miami Springs, Fla. and Gina Gentry and her husband, Terry, of Pleasant Shade, Tenn.
