Obituary for Mark Allen Ziebold

Mark Allen Ziebold, 79, of Swartz Creek, Michigan, passed away on Friday, November 13, 2020 at McLaren Hospital of COVID-19. He was born to Harold and Stella Ziebold in Cincinnati, OH on December 17, 1940. Mark was the strength and provider for his family most of his life taking care of his mother, brother, and sister after his father passed away unexpectantly early in his childhood. He also took care of extended family and was a caregiver for his Aunt Jeanne and Uncle Bud for many years.

Mark was a faithful husband for 52 years to the love of his life, Pamela Ann Ziebold. He was the father of twins Tami (Stevens) and Tom (Ziebold) and felt lucky to have been given the gift to nurture his children all the days of his life. He was a loving father-in-law to Sandy Ziebold and Matt Stevens and a loving Grandpa to Brooke, Brendan, Marcus and Mitchell. Mark worked tirelessly to care for his family and gave all his efforts to make their lives better. He helped his children and grandchildren in reaching their higher education goals. He taught them all to work hard and love each other with their whole hearts.

Mark was always there to support his loved ones and we will never forget his big broad smile, hearty laugh, and incredible sense of humor. He loved to entertain and took pride in the fact that he always had exactly what his guests wanted available at any time including a plentiful bowl of candy, nuts, and favorite drinks. He was an extremely kind man. He loved his pets and would do anything for his family, friends, and neighbors. He was an incredibly humble man. He never wanted to be the center of attention and yet it always seemed that he was at the center of every party. He will be remembered for his generous nature and giving heart. He gave always and often to anyone in need. Family will miss his humor, his story telling, and the wonderful cook he was. Mark loved playing cards and other games with family and friends. He loved watching his grandkids participate in their activities including music, theatre, and sports. We will miss his wonderful company and his uplifting spirit that welcomed everyone and offered moments of love and joy wherever we went. Some of Mark’s favorite things included Drambuie, Skyline Chili, and black licorice. We are thankful that he will be able to walk again without restriction and will be healthy and out of the constant pain that plagued him later in life.

Mark was a true man of God. He knew God’s word and lived his life directed by his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Mark was a true warrior of God. He often said there is power in the blood and he knew that he was going home to be with his heavenly father. He had no fear of death and spent many years serving the lord at multiple churches throughout his lifetime. We are certain he is hearing the words, “Well done, good and faithful servant; enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” He would want all his family and friends to accept Jesus as their personal savior so that he can rejoice and have fellowship with them again someday. We are all going to miss him so much. We will never forget you and we will always love you and be inspired by you as a grandpa, father, husband, and friend always and forever… until we meet again rest in peace!

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, a Memorial Service will be held privately.
