He was born in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia on March 22, 1980. He was the son of the late Ray Mode and Betty Jean Chapman Mode. A special cousin, Jackie Childers, also preceded him in death.

He was very mechanically inclined and enjoyed tinkering on cars. Mark was always happy, and he loved music. He recently started playing the guitar.
He is survived by his children, Tyler Mode (Kimberly), Brittney Mode, and Kalee Mode; four grandchildren, Jericho Mode, Asher Mode, Braylen Mode, and Sadie Ward; and his siblings, Jo Kelly Ellis, Garrett Holladay, Robert Mode, Richard Ray Mode, Michael Lee Mode, and Melissa Chapman.
