Mark “Wookie” Wodtke

Mark Wodtke, age 61, passed away at his home in Fairplay, Colo. on Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019.

Wookie was born on July 22, 1957 in Roda, Spain.

Mark was a service brat and lived wherever there was a port, which explains his sense of adventure.

Mark was a lover, not a fighter. He never missed an opportunity to compliment, wholeheartedly, everyone he knew. To know him was to love him.

Mark is survived by his life partner Patricia Boyle and his chosen family, the Sullivans of Framingham, Mass.

Memorial services will be held on Saturday, Feb. 23, 2019 at the American Legion Hut, 601 Clark Street, in Fairplay, Colo., noon to 2 p.m., followed by a Celebration of his Life.
