Mark Wright
1963 - 2017

Mark was a great friend to Take the Next Step and many members or our community.

During Mark's eight years in Monroe, despite his homelessness, he touched many lives. Mark loved to repair and repurpose found items. He restored countless bikes to help others get around town. Mark could repair almost anything - and he did. His generosity was overwhelming.

Mark was a leader and cared for all of us at the Next Step and our guests. He always had a cheerful word no matter how miserable, cold, and wet weather may be.
