Mark Edwin Hoover, age 65, died peacefully at home on March 17 2021, after a short-lived battle with cancer.  Mark was born on March 6,1956 in Valparaiso, Indiana to Clayton and Patricia (Wale) Hoover.  He graduated from Kouts High School in 1974, and went on to join IBEW Local 531 as an electrician where he worked until retiring.  On March 7, 2015, he married Susan Justice, whom remained a dedicated and loving caregiver to him in his final days.  Mark enjoyed his retirement years to their fullest, and divided his time between the Angola, Indiana area in the summers and the Picayune, Mississippi area in the winter time.  He loved fishing and cooking over the campfire.  He particularly enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, and they will forever remember their times with Papa fishing and driving around recklessly on the golf cart.  He was always game to shave his head at his grandkids’ request, much to their delight.  Mark is survived by his wife Susan (Justice); his children Diane (Shawn) Hunt, Jennifer Hoover (Shannon Peterson), and Angela (Keith) Kleckner; eight grandchildren:  Ashley Hunt, Mackenzie Hunt, Hannah Peterson, Delaney Hunt, Hailee Stewart, Aubrey Hunt, Jaden Stewart, and Gage Kleckner; his siblings Kimberly Hoover and David Hoover; and numerous nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his parents Clayton and Patricia Hoover, his brothers Rick and Matthew Hoover, his sister Sharon Hoover, and his ex-wife Lisa Hoover.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 3rd beginning at 1 pm at the Kouts American Legion.
