Mark Andrew Knuth, November 5, 1963 – December 29, 2018, beloved husband of Catherine (nee Welling) and deeply loved father of Jacob and Brendan. Also survived by his siblings Elizabeth, Peter (Sherri), Margaret, Katharine, and Jennifer (David Pfister), his mother Patricia Bridgeman Knuth, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, in-laws and devoted friends.
Mark graduated from St. Joseph grade school and Catholic Memorial High School, both in Waukesha. He was a generous, clever, fun-loving man with a wry sense of humor who volunteered his time to many. An avid sports fan, he rooted passionately for the Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Brewers, Baltimore Orioles, and Wisconsin Badgers. He treasured his time with Catherine, Jacob and Brendan, especially their many vacations – Door County, Disney World, and major league baseball stadiums were their particular favorites. Mark also treasured his friendships – many of which were formed in grade school.
Mark’s family is eternally grateful to Dr. Pareswarmeran Hari for his unrelenting efforts to cure Mark’s cancer, and to all of the medical personnel who nurtured Mark and his family over the past ten years.
