James Mark Ginder was born on August 13, 1941, in Cherokee to Bill Ginder and Fae Balfour Ginder and passed from this life on Thursday, October 9, 2008, at his home in Cherokee.
He was a farmer/rancher in the Cherokee area, where he was a lifetime resident. Mark graduated from Oklahoma State University with a BS degree in Agriculture and he had served in the Air National Guard.
On December 19, 1970, Mark married Jeanne Smart in Cherokee. He was attending the First Baptist Church in Cherokee at the time of his death. Mark fought a long, courageous battle with cancer and always kept a positive attitude. He was admired by many for that.
Mark and his family and friends spent many special times at their home on Grand Lake and many special memories were made to be remembered forever. Mark was a member of the SAE Fraternity at OSU and he always looked forward to and enjoyed the annual ski trip with his fraternity brothers.
His daily morning routine was drinking coffee and hanging out with his friends at Miss Dottie's. Lanie Ann would bring a sparkle to his eyes and a smile to his face. She loved her "Papa."
Mark enjoyed life to the fullest and was blessed by many good friends throughout his lifetime and will be missed.
He was preceded in death by one daughter, Kentra, one son, Travis, his parents, Bill and Fae Ginder, and one brother, Kent.
His survivors include his wife, Jeanne of Cherokee; one son, Bo Ginder and wife, Heidi of Cherokee; one grandchild, Lanie; and one sister, Vicki Coffman of Enid.
