Mark A. Senechal, 46, of Genesee, passed away suddenly Friday, Jan. 27, 2012 in Pullman, Wash.
Mark was born Aug, 7, 1965 in Inglewood, to Jeannine and Leonard Senechal. He attended St. James Catholic School in Torrance until moving with his mother to Bishop in 1980, graduating from Bishop Union High School. Mark began his plastic mold career at Caltron in Bishop and later worked in Carson City, Nev.
His longtime friend, Glen Riley, contacted Mark, inviting him to pursue an opportunity with an expanding engineering company in Pullman. To Mark’s great fortune, he was hired at Schweitzer Engineering in June 2008. Mark was involved with the planning and opening of the new Schweitzer Lab in Lewiston, Idaho, at the beginning of 2012.
Mark enjoyed life and all it offered. His many interests included skiing, shooting, motorcycle riding, four-wheel driving, hiking, fishing, camping, extreme boating and building large bonfires. Mark’s family, friends and colleagues will always remember his wonderful sense of humor. He will be missed by all.
He is survived by his mother, Jeannine Senechal; his father, Leonard Senechal; sister, Laurie Naab and her husband, Gary; brother, Greg Senechal and his wife, Helen; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and two great-nieces.
Mark was preceded in death by brother, David Allan Senechal in 1988.
