Mark Mahnkey of Lynnwood, WA passed away on April 12, 2018 at the age of 69. He was born in Tacoma, WA on September 4, 1948 and was a resident of Washington State his entire life. Mark graduated from Curtis Sr. High School in University Place, attended Washington State University in Pullman, and completed a distance-learning program through Loyola University of Chicago.

Mark was a small business owner for much of the 1980's, with grocery stores in and around the Tacoma area. He was elected to the University Place School Board in the 1990's and served on the Washington State School Directors Association (WSSDA) concurrently. In his later years, Mark was appointed to the Evergreen State Fair Board of Directors and was a frequent visitor to the state capitol, testifying before the state legislature on matters of open government and parental rights. Throughout the decades, he could always be found at the local Denny's, reading the newspaper and drinking coffee in the early morning hours.

Mark is survived by his children, John-Mark (Denise) Mahnkey, Nicholas (Nicole) Mahnkey, and Benjamin (Emily) Mahnkey; grandchildren, Hayden, Maxwell, Harper, and Maverick; sister Susan (Kenneth) Dahlberg; as well as innumerable friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond and Eugenia Mahnkey, and his cat, El Gato.

At his request, no services will be held.
Memorial donations can be made to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance or Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA.

I have been working with Mark on the Mukilteo Ferry Advisory Committee for the past 18 mos where he made meetings humorous. His straight forward, lets get to the fact style was really appreciated. He will be dearly missed. I agree wholeheartedly that Mark worked diligently to make this/his community a better place. Condolences to his family!

Sorry for your loss. I will miss working with Mark at the Fair. He was a pleasure to be around and always helpful. Elaine Johannsen

Mark was a very smart energetic man with many interests. He loved to get out into the countryside and we explored many wild roads. The last pictures I have are from a road trip last fall over Colockum Pass which I posted.

Mark had a large circle of friends who will miss him greatly for years. We are all fortunate that he remained active until the last few months.

Condolences to all family and friends.
