He was proceeded in death by his Father, Sister Brooke & then Mother.
He leaves behind: 3 siblings Kim, Ken & Jack
Wife of 46 years Christine Starkweather.
Mark Landers (1st marriage)
& 11 Grandchildren:
Brandon, Christopher, Ashley, & Trevor
Erica, Anaya, Gregory & Slater
Hunter & Conner
All of whom he loved VERY much!
Mark had lived in Florida for over 60 years. He attended High
School in Lake Worth, FL. and eventually went to work for Western Electric.
After retiring from Western Electric, Mark opened a lawn maintenance company and ran it for many years with his second wife Christine and eventually two of his sons Lennon & Daniel, in Sebastian FL.
Even though his green thumb was the envy of many, his specialty was tree trimming and chainsaw work. Mark could shimmy up a tree like he was born in one. So even after “retiring” a second time he continued to help his friends, family and neighbors with their yards. Many will remember him for this alone.
Mark was a humble and kind man, that loved his family deeply. He lead a simple life by choice and was always willing to help others in need. He was of a generation that believed in hard work and being self sufficient. This is a core value he lived everyday of his life. He tried to pass this on to as many youngsters as he could.
Mark was a good carpenter and had an artistic eye for DIY. He saw potential in what others saw as something to discard, whether it was an object (or a person). His greatest talent was for then turning it, into something both useful and/or beautiful.
Mark loved baseball and The Beatles, even naming 2 of his 5 children after them. Of course as all know, we can not leave out his unique sense of humor! He was always playing a joke on family & friends, that will be missed by many, ‘Spock’ ears and all!

The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.
Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
