Mark Germino

From Rene Boseman (Bess)

Dear Classmates- I stayed in touch with Mark G and his sweet wife, Denise, after his stroke.  I just received this text from her and am heartbroken to share it.

Rene, I have sad news. Mark fell and hit his head Tuesday. He sustained a severe head injury and the bleeding inside his skull put pressure on his brain and brain stem. He was on a ventilator Tuesday until 1 am Wednesday when it was removed and he was allowed to breath on his own. It was not his wish to be on a ventilator in a vegetative state. He passed away at 11:17 Wed. Please help me notify his classmates if you can. He was so good at keeping in touch with his childhood gang.
