Mark was born July 13, 1960, in Klamath Falls, Oregon, to John and Helen Lacey Bryngelson. He was the fifth of seven children. In 1970, the family moved to Rupert, Idaho where he attended St. Nicholas Catholic School, East Minico Jr. High and graduated from Minico High School in 1978. He worked for many years farming and working in the shop with his Dad and Uncle. He loved to talk about the time he spent in Guam with his cousin building houses and his adventures in Alaska. He was a member of St. Nicholas Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus. Mark married April Ward, November 10, 2011. She completed him and he said she made him a better person. In 2013, they were blessed with their precious son, Callen. Mark loved his son more than anything else in the world. Callen was such a gift to him, and he was a wonderful dad. They spent many hours playing and working together. He especially enjoyed building Legos with Callen. Mark was employed by Cassia County in the Weed department where he had worked for nearly 20 years and he could spot a noxious weed from a mile away. Mark served his community for seven years as a firefighter and Captain on the East End Fire Department, where he made lasting friendships. Mark is survived by his loving wife, April; and son, Callen; as well as his brothers, Sean Bryngelson of Paul, Lynn Bryngelson of Beaumont, Texas; and sisters, Laura Twiss of Rupert, Marie (Dean)Tracy of Idaho Falls, and Dana (Dennis) Dexter of Burley.
