Mark Edward Stevens, 66 years young, peacefully passed away Feb. 17, 2024, with his family by his side. He was born in Phoenix to parents Dick and Marylou (Prenovost) Stevens, the third of six children. He grew up in a home full of love, several dogs, rabbits, turtles and a parakeet.

He attended St. Agnes Catholic Elementary School and then followed his brothers to Brophy College Preparatory for high school. He played football for the Brophy Broncos with his brother Bill and was recognized when Brophy made it to the state finals his sophomore year. Mark made friends easily: some of them include his longtime, childhood friend from the neighborhood, Tim Ronan; his best buddy, Darrel Parker; and, his father-in-law, Joe Ingram, who considers Mark a best friend.

Mark attended Loyola Marymount University and Arizona State University. He was a Sun Devil to his core – the ASU fight song was faithfully played in his home for every important event.

His career spanned decades in commercial real estate and property management. He held leadership positions at JLL, Cushman & Wakefield, Cabot Properties and CB Richard Ellis.

Mark’s pride and joy was his family. He was a loving husband to his soulmate and wife, Patty. They would have celebrated their 29th wedding anniversary in April. He loved sports, especially watching his kids at various athletic events as they grew up. More recently, he enjoyed cheering on his grandkids as they tested their abilities at youth sports.

Mark and his son Michael created a special bond rebuilding his 1967 Toyota Land Cruiser while Mike was in high school – passing on the love for taking apart and rebuilding anything mechanical, something he hoped to repeat with his grandson, Colter.  Mark adored his oldest daughter’s warm caring nature, which led Kristin to a career in nursing, and he loved her frequent calls to “check in.” As a former pilot of small airplanes, Mark cherished everything having to do with aviation. He lived his life vicariously through his middle daughter Nicole, a commercial pilot. He tracked her every take off and landing using an app on his phone. And his youngest, Natalie, has a love for expressing herself in dance. The two of them beautifully danced the country swing and pink slip dip at many celebrations.

Mark also loved boating. He would always say there wasn’t a better day than a day at the lake. He took great pride in teaching boating safety to his children, including the right way (aka the “Mark way”) to trailer the boat, pull a skier, attack wakes, and the best ways to anchor in the middle of the lake. His family and friends have many fond memories of days full of laughter and sunshine on the water.

Mark is survived by his wife Patty (Ingram) Stevens and his four children: Michael (Taylor), Kristin (Taylor), Nicole and Natalie, along with five grandchildren: Adeline, Colter, Brixton, Campbell and Caden. He is also survived by his former wife, Donna Kennedy, mother of Michael and Kristin; and, by his five siblings: Chuck (Margaret), Bill (Maria), Cathy (Bob), Peggy (Larry) and Carol (Joe). He is preceded in death by his parents Dick and Marylou.

Mark’s celebration of life service will be Saturday, March 2, 2024, at 1 p.m. at Brophy Chapel in Phoenix. In Mark’s memory and in lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Hospice of the Valley.
