We are sad to report...

 

Mark Haines, founder and executive editor of Mark’s List, died this weekend after completing if first Century in The Smart Ride.

“I am heartbroken to report that Mark Haines, my uncle, the founder and owner of Mark’s List, and a long-time leader in the Florida GLBT community, was killed last night. And yet, I tenuously reach for some ray of happiness in knowing that he died while doing what he loved most. He was participating in the Smart Ride with his brother (my father), Stephen Lang (long-time Mark’s List photographer), and hundreds of others,” wrote Matthew Haines. “He died instantly, hit by a car while walking home from dinner after the best day and the best ride of his life. On behalf of my father, myself, and all of Mark’s family, we invite all who knew Mark to the funeral. Details will be announced as soon as possible.”

Services to honor Mark will be held Saturday at 1PM at The Pride Center in Wilton Manors, we hope you will join us in celebrating Mark’s life and accomplishments in our community.
