Lloyd Mark Engelkes
September 4, 1952 - July 19, 2021

Lloyd Mark Engelkes, age 68, passed away peacefully in his sleep on July 19, 2021. He was born on September 4, 1952, in Stuttgart, Arkansas, to Wilbur and Barbara Engelkes. Mark was a retired farmer and logger and of the Methodist faith.

Mark was preceded in death by his father Wilbur and his brother Danny Engelkes.

Mark began his career as a farmer with his father and four brothers developing his love for agriculture and the outdoors. He was an avid coon hunter in his younger years traveling hundreds of miles with his brother in search of perfect coonhounds to purchase. Mark also enjoyed riding horses. When his daughter Ashley was old enough to begin rodeoing, Mark traded in his hobbies for hers. Watching Ashley ride was one of Mark's greatest joys in life. Mark traded his four-wheel drive tractor for an iron mule and started a small logging operation until retirement. Most recently, his passion was his grandchildren and their love for rodeo.
Talking about his granddaughter Skyler and her barrel racing brought Mark great joy. He loved to take Skyler and Colton to the barn and watch them ride. Mark was a great story and joke teller. He grew the best watermelons. He loved his mamaís karo nut pies. He was a cancer survivor and loved to tell people about it. He will be missed around town in all his frequent drop in spots, the Farm Store, the Donut Shop, his brotherís shop, Western Sizzlin, and his daily trips to Sonic where he took Skyler and Colton to get a snack and drink.

He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Paula. His daughter that he adored, Ashley McKee and her husband Cody, and his grandchildren, Skyler Hill and Colton McKee, his mother Barbara Engelkes, his brothers Larry, Ricky (Kathy Lou), and David, nine nieces and nephews, and 11 great nieces and nephews. He will also be missed greatly by his nephew Nick who was his go to helper and friend.
