What great sadness. The Kotaskas were a great part of our home town of Carberry. They have suffered so much sorrow. I knew Helen and Gerry, Mark, Pat and Jackie, Terry and Toni. So much musical talent! Terry and Mark’s passing is particularly hard. As Terry once said…‘Earl is my first and only guitar teacher!’. Little did I know at that time, that Terry would blow me away with his talent! Mark was a tremendous talent too and went on to great musical accomplishments. Mark was a musician’s musician! Most sincere condolences to Pat, Jackie and Toni on his passing. - Posted by: Earl Brown (Friend ) on: Nov 14, 2021
Mark was a truly talented bass player and a great friend. All of us from Jay and The Americans will miss his outstanding bass playing and personality. May he rest in peace knowing he was greatly appreciated and a beloved friend to us all. - Posted by: Jay Reincke (Musician / vocalist) on: Nov 09, 2021
Deepest sympathies to all family. It was great to see Mark in his natural habitat - ON STAGE IN VEGAS - just a couple of years ago. Thinking of you all. - Posted by: Dee Dee Linn (friend) on: Nov 09, 2021
