Mark was born on March 25, 1963 in Shreveport, Louisiana to loving parents, Vera Dean Arrington Head and Andrew Franklin Head and passed away Friday, April 1, 2022 in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Mark graduated from Southwood High School in 1981 and married Laura Lewis in 1983. Together they have three amazing children. Mark was so proud of his children. Above all he accomplished, his family was his greatest treasure. Mark worked for the State of Louisiana DOTD for 6 years. He went to work for the FAA as an Air Traffic Controller in 1989. This was the job he so loved to do. Mark retired from the FAA after 29 years.
Mark was diagnosed with pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer in 2004. The cancer metastasized to Mark’s liver in 2011. After many years of treatment and years of chemo, Mark had fought his battle. Mark is now in Heaven rejoicing and praising God with a healed body.
Left to cherish Mark’s memory are his loving wife, Laura Head; daughter, Lauren Kelsey Head Thibodeaux and husband, Seth and twins, Austin Truly Head and Emily Jane Madison Head; only grandson, Andrew Nicholas Thibodeaux who was the love and pure joy of Mark’s heart and younger brother who he was so proud of, John Michael Head and wife, Suzie.
There really aren’t enough words to describe how wonderful, dedicated, loving and exceptional of a husband and father Mark truly was.
