Obituary for Mark D. McGonigal

Mark D. McGonigal, age 56, passed at his daughter’s home in Pocatello, Idaho on Saturday morning, December 29, 2018. He passed in his sleep of a heart attack.
Mark was born in Blackfoot, Idaho to Jacob H. McGonigal and Rebecca S. (Waddups) McGonigal. He was preceded in death by his father, Jacob and mother, Rebecca; his two brothers, Oran and Dennis; and his sister, Susan.
Mark is survived by his four children, Mark Anthony, Alyshia Beth, Bryan Jacob and Forest Leigh; his seven grandchildren, Neila, Aidan, Trinity, Fynn, Leina, Annabeth and Jacob; four siblings, Jacob, Ira, John, Ann, Danny, Steven, and Chris and his ex-wife, Amy.
Mark had lots of hobbies, really as long as he was outside he was a happy man. Fishing and planting trees were definitely his number one favorites. Mark would fish anywhere he could with anyone who would go with him. He definitely passed that passion onto his son, Anthony. Mark could tell you anything about any fish. Mark loved trees, everything about them. He would collect tree seeds of mostly oak and maple and plant them everywhere he would go. He also had special spots where he was planting and making his own forest. He wanted to make the earth prettier, but really just wanted to make sure the deer had enough food! He always told Alyshia that the rocky mountain maple and birch oak were cake and ice cream to the deer. He would say, “I don’t know which is the cake and which is the ice cream, but the deer do!” Mark loved to hunt, fish, camp, plant trees, tie flies, doing silly silly project and of course, big foot! The man loved the outside world. He was truly loved and will be missed dearly.
