Mark A. Ware


Our beloved Mark Andrew Ware, age 51 went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, July 8, 2018 at Mt Carmel East Hospital. He was born in Columbus, Ohio on September 16, 1966 to Benjamin and Irma Ware.

He was a 1984 graduate of Beechcroft High School and had a great love for music, football and was an advent reader with a special love for spiritual books.

Mark was baptized in Jesus name at the age of 9 years old and received the precious gift of the holy spirit at Apostolic Holiness Church under the leadership of the late Bishop Ray M. Trout until God transitioned his membership.

This great man of God who loved God people and he never knew a stranger. He also faithfully served as a drummer and choir member at New Life Apostolic Church under the leadership of Bishop Gerald Smith until 1990 when Bishop Curtis Scott assumed leadership.

Mark served as a minister in God’s Vineyard for a number of years and was subsequently ordained an Elder on April 12, 2015. With a smile continuously on his face Mark served as a Sunday School Teacher, Praise and Worship Leader and Youth Leader.

By trade Mark was a skilled Maintenance Technician. He not only utilized his skills in the market place, but he volunteered his talents and undertook various jobs and projects at the church.

Mark was a gentle giant who loved many, and who was loved by many. Outside of God his greatest love was his devoted and loving wife of 30 years Trenda Ware, and their three sons. He was a dedicated family man, son, husband, brother, uncle, nephew and friend.
