Mark Tomer, 69, of Tulsa, passed from this life on Wednesday, June 26, 2019. A celebration of Mark's life will be held at 10 AM, Monday, July 8, 2019, at Fitzgerald Southwood Colonial Chapel.
Mark was born on October 29, 1949, in Tulsa, the son of John Schaffer and Patricia Busby Tomer. He grew up in Tulsa, graduating from Memorial High School, Class of 1967. He also attended OSU and TU.
In 1967, he met his high school sweetheart, Gloria Gray, by going on a blind date coordinated by Robin Siegfried. Even though during college their lives took different paths, they were reunited in 1981. He pursued her all the way to Colorado, and convinced her to come back to Tulsa with him. They were later married on April 12, 1985, in Honolulu, Hawaii, and shared 34 wonderful years together.
Mark was a true success, not only in love, but in business, family and faith. He was CEO of Enardo Manufacturing Co. from 1985-2007. "Growing" his company every year was not work for him. It was his passion, and he thrived on being involved in every aspect of it. His first concern though, was always his employee's fulfillment and welfare. He was involved in creating and manufacturing innovative new products for the environmental and oil and gas industries.
He served the community on many boards of directors. He loved cars and passed that passion on to his son, Evan.
He is survived by his loving wife, Gloria; son, Evan; daughter-in-law, Bianca; sister, Janice Tomer-Booth, her husband, Jeff; brother-in-law, Bruce Gray, his wife, Jacque; niece, Ashley Booth; and nephew, Matthew Booth.
The family requests that in lieu of flowers you help someone who is less fortunate in Mark's memory. Fitzgerald Southwood Colonial Chapel, 918-291-3500.
