Mark Henry Aschebrock
June 11, 1971 — February 27, 2021
The world lost an incredible man Saturday, February 27, 2021. Mark Henry Aschebrock left family and friends like he always wanted—short, quick and before being placed in a nursing home. At age 49, Mark passed as happy, headstrong, and kindhearted as family always knew him to be.
Mark held many titles in his life, but father was his most exceptional. He was extremely proud of his son, Taz (Bri) and daughter, Storm (Connor) whom he raised with Mary Lewis, and was known to brag about them, even to complete strangers in a bar room. Whether coaching baseball games or watching dance recitals or cheering loud as his son graduated the Firefighter Academy and his baby girl received her white coat at LSU’s Veterinary School, his children always knew him to be there. He can rest peacefully knowing he provided for his children and supported them in accomplishing their dreams.
Mark was always a hard-working man, constantly finding projects to complete. His latest project was redoing the house he resided in with his fiancé, Rhonda Servary, and her children Trestin, Keith and Jazlyn—for whom he assumed a fatherly role. He was ecstatic to expand his family this year with plans to get married in Las Vegas by a midget Elvis.
His strong will and determination were credited to his father, Henry (Linda) and mother, Peggy Upright (Fred, deceased). Mark and his older sister, Wendy (Steve), always looked out for each other, and she served as a strong support system throughout his life.
Mark held friends just as close as family. He and his cousin, Keith, were inseparable from a young age. They bonded through sports, home projects, sword and movie collecting, and breaking all the rules. Mark experienced life outside of Louisiana for the first time last year as he travelled across the country with two close friends, Tony (Kim) and Adam (Logan). Even while away from home, he enjoyed being Uncle Mark to Jonathan, Brandi, and Tony’s youngest son, TJ, and celebrating the Mardi Gras holiday with his sister and friends.
Mark had a life-long love affair with sweet tea, mac-n-cheese, barbeque Vienna sausages, Pepsi, red velvet cake and ham and cheese sandwiches. He was a skilled chocolate milk and fried eggs chef but mediocre baker (at best). He will be remembered for his obsession with skulls, working with his hands, forgiving those who hurt him, and staying strong for those he loved. He spent many nights playing on a dart league, schooling friends in pool, and dominating games of Dominoes or Phase 10.
Mark’s wishes were to be cremated, but he will be honored with a celebration of life on March 13th, 2021. As Mark would say, “it is what it is,” so be sure to bring laughter, smiles, stories, and memories because he would not want anyone to mourn his death. Arrangements will be held at Juan’s Bar starting at 1pm.
