Mark K. Tedrow, 62, of Wind Ridge, PA, lost a long and courageous battle with cancer at home on September 24, 2016 surrounded by his family.
Born March 26, 1954, he is the son of the late Robert Kenneth and Betty Jane (Riggle) Tedrow.
Mark graduated in 1972 from West Greene High School. He was employed by Consol Energy as a coal miner and had 37 years in the Coal Mining Industry. Mark was a beef farmer and a member of the American Angus Association. He was also a member of the Seven Hills Church of Christ in Cameron, WV.
He was completely devoted to his wife, sons and grandchildren. Mark was a simple and private man who is loved so deeply by his family. He enjoyed farming with his son Dirk and sports with his son Chet. The joy that came over him when his grandchildren simply walked into the room cannot be described.
When he smiled, you couldn’t stop yourself from following. Mark may have appeared rough around the edges to some. For those who were blessed, he showed the polished refinement and beauty within.
Mark will continue to be the heart of his family. As he will be missed and honored with every passing day.
He is survived by his wife of 41 years, Jonnie Lynn (Lucey) Tedrow; his two sons, Chet (Melissa J.) Tedrow and Dirk (Melissa R.)
