Mark Elmer Settell

On Wednesday, May 23, 2018 Mark Elmer Settell, loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend unexpectedly passed away at his home in New River, Arizona. Mark leaves behind his best friend and wife of 10 years, Lynn Settell, daughter Chloe Rosella Settell, and son Alexander E. Malcolm Settell. Mark had a great love for his family and is survived by his brothers Leonard Settell, Clayton (Fran) Settell, and Kirk Settell, sister April Settell and his step-father, Richard Drake. Mark was so loved by his nieces and nephews and had a tradition of calling them to sing happy birthday every year. Mark has many cousins, aunts, uncles and friends who share fond memories with him. Mark was also loved by so many friends and he will be missed beyond measure.

Mark was preceded in death by his father Leonard Malcolm Settell, mother Rosella Jenny (Snyder) Settell/Drake and brother Michael Settell. Mark will be laid to rest at home in Medford, Oregon at Siskiyou Memorial Park with his father and brother, Mike.

Mark was born June 30, 1964 at the Rogue Valley Hospital in Medford, Oregon and was the youngest of 5 boys. Mark grew up in Central Point where he built many strong friendships. He attended Crater High School and has kept in touch with many of his childhood friends. Mark's heart is in Oregon where he shared so many happy memories growing up around the Rogue River. Mark worked at Cascade Wood mill where his father had worked when the boys were young.

Mark opened several mortgage brokerages and built a strong reputation as an honest businessman and a personable boss. Mark ended up in Scottsdale , Arizona 20 years ago and continued to model the highest integrity as a mortgage broker and for the last 10 years as a Fleet Sales manager at Right Toyota. Mark built his customer base by earning trust, taking personal interest in his clients and sharing his life and love of his family. Mark's genuine personality was apparent to people even the first time they met and he instantly felt like a friend. He was very hard working and took pride in his work.

Mark and Lynn have the sweetest love story and it didn't take long to realize a bright future together. They were married July 11, 2008 on the island of St Lucia. Mark's dream of becoming a father came true on February 17, 2010 when Chloe Rosella was born. Mark's family was perfectly complete with the birth of Alexander E. Malcolm, on February 16, 2013. Both bear the names of his parents, in loving memory. This is just one example of his love of family. He was the most loving man and made sure to share his love every single day in so many ways. His mother had such an impact on his life and he grew into a big-hearted, loving man through her influence. She taught him so much about how to be a caring father long before his children were born. She knew in her heart what his future would bring.

Mark loved to go camping and dreamed of buying a motor home and visiting every national park in the United States. He always shared the happy memories of camping adventures as a kid. Mark loved tending to his garden and shared the excitement of sprouting vegetables with Chloe and Alexander. His backyard was his sanctuary, where he created a small paradise for relaxing, grilling and smoking meat, playing games with the kids and appreciating beautiful desert sunsets. Mark planted four rose bushes for each of us and for the two kids outside of the dining room window in memory of his mother. The placement was very intentional so he could see them everyday. Mark also love sports, especially watching the Cardinals football games and tailgating. He was always the griller and looked forward to every game spent with friends and family.

A celebration of Mark's life will take place at Table Rock Christian Church at 3610 N Pacific Hwy, Medford OR 97501 10:00 a.m. Saturday, June 23rd BBQ to follow at Pfaff Park, Central Point, Oregon. Please join us in prayer and share your love for Mark and his family.

Sending my sincere condolences to your family for the loss of Mark. Losing someone you love so dearly is heartbreaking and I want to share a comforting scripture to help you during the hard days ahead. It is found at Isaiah 41:10, 13 where it shows the deep love God has for us. Verse 10 says, Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness. Verse 13 continues, For I, Jehovah your God, am grasping your right hand,The One saying to you, Do not be afraid. I will help you. We are assured of Gods help to cope.

I opened my Ashland Daily Tidings today and saw an obituary listing for Mark. I was shocked and so sad to realize this was the lovely man who sold me my Prius in Scottsdale in 2009. Somehow with his kind demeanor and his excitement at the coming birth of his first child, he got into my heart. I even bought Chloe a gift when she was born, a little box for her toys. I always made sure to see Mark when I had an oil change or repair on my car. I moved to Ashland Oregon at the end of 2011, and called Mark when I was having car trouble and did not receive the same quality of service here. I had no idea he was from Central Point. We talked for a long time, and I invited him to visit next time he was up here with his beautiful family. I saw him again last September when we drove back down to Scottsdale to escape the fires in the Northwest. I came into the dealership to get an oil change and made sure to connect with Mark. He remembered me immediately, and he looked so happy. He told me about his little boy, and we talked about his wonderful life. He seemed so blessed. I send my love and prayers to you and your family. You had way too short a time with him. Much love to you.
