Mark Tarabek, age 58 of Northfield, passed away at home with his family by his side early Saturday morning, September 15, 2018, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Mark Andrew Tarabek was born December 31, 1959, in Atchison, Kansas. During his youth he moved often with his family and graduated from high school in St. Louis. After high school he served in the US Army. Following his discharge he moved to Faribault and later Northfield. Over the years he worked for several area businesses and enjoyed his years working at Knecht Nursery. Mark enjoyed playing the guitar, collecting model cars and spending his time working on automobiles. Mark was kind, quick to help and had a big heart. His wonderful sense of humor and joke telling will be long remembered. His greatest enjoyment came from “spending time in the great outdoors.”
