Obituary

Mark William Surface, 68, of Salem, passed away on Monday, February 3, 2020, at Lewis-Gale Medical Center.

He was born on December 11, 1951, in Hinton, W.Va., to the late Lewis and Elizabeth Surface. Mark proudly served his country, during the Vietnam war, in the U.S. Army. Following his honorable discharge, he became employed with, and eventually retired from, the City of Salem; completing 23 years of faithful service as a mechanic.

Mark loved to hunt and ride his four-wheeler around the mountains, but he will mostly be remembered by those who loved him most as a loving husband, father, and friend to many. He will be missed.

Family remaining to cherish his memory includes his wife of 37 years, Vicki Surface, of Salem; two sons, Randy Surface, of Bedford, Va., and Brian Surface, of Salem; sister, Marguerite Seitz, and husband, Jerry, of Ohio; sisters-in-law, Teresa Ellis, and husband, Dwayne, of Salem, Kathy O’Neill, of Shawsville, Va., and Elsie Dunbar, of Hurt, Va.; two granddaughters, Morgan, of Pulaski, Va., and Shaylee Surface, of Bedford, Va.; best friends, Marvin and Evelyn Loyd, of Salem; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Memorial services to honor Mark’s life will be conducted on Friday, February 7, 2020, at 11 a.m., in the chapel of John M. Oakey & Son Funeral Home, with Pastor Cameron Smith officiating. Military honors will be presented for his time served.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making donations to either the Salem Animal Shelter or to the American Heart Association.
